BioWare continues to trickle out new information about Mass Effect 2 as we get closer and closer to its early 2010 release date. This latest update comes in the form of teaser trailer which introduces a new location from the game, Omega, and a new character, Grunt. Omega is essentially the “Sin City” of the universe, while Grunt is a “reckless, unpredictable, and irrationally violent” Krogan who’s out for blood. Both look like they go perfectly with the new darker tone the game is aiming for.
Hit the jump to view this new trailer and decide for yourself if there has ever been a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
For those of you who don’t know, Omega was first introduced to the Mass Effect universe in “Ascension”, a novel which takes place a couple weeks after the events of the first game. In the book, the Omega Space space station is described as “the Terminus Systems’ dark, twisted counterpart to the Citadel.”
Built from the remains of a huge asteroid, it is home to some of the most vile criminals in the entire galaxy. Commander Shepard is sure to get into trouble when he travels there is Mass Effect 2, but I have a feeling he won’t be in too over his head.
