Electronic Arts has officially announced that Mass Effect 2 will be launching in North America on January 26th, with the European release coming three days later on the 29th.  In addition, they have also posted details about the pre-order bonuses for the game, which will come in the form of special armor suits for your characters.

Unfortunately, no information has been given to indicate whether a collector’s edition will be released, but something tells me Bioware has something special up their sleeve.  At least there is a firm release date, so we can all start planning to take that day off work/school.

Read on to find out more about the Mass Effect 2 pre-order bonuses and to see some new images from the game.

Pre-ordering the game from GameStop will score you the Terminus Assault Armor, which provides bonuses for run speed, damage, shields, and extra ammo.  In addition you also receive the M-90 Blackstorm, a heavy weapon which generates a localized gravity well that’s gauranteed to help decimate your enemies. 

If you are not a fan of GameStop, or you don’t have one in your area, pre-ordering the game from any other store will grant you the Inferno Armor, which boosts your negotiation skills, run speed, and combat damage. 

While I’m not usually a big fan of pre-ordering games, I have to admit that these are pretty awesome bonuses.  I think I might have to head on down to my local GameStop and drop $5 on Mass Effect 2 today, because the Terminus Assault Armor and M-90 sound extremely cool.

So who else is excited about these pre-order bonuses?

  1. I blogged about this only because how excited I am. Can’t wait!

  2. Aw man, now I gotta change my pants. I’ll definitely be preordering this tomorrow.

    Me too mate. I have not got a lot of money but hell, screw anything else I am pre-ordering this.

  4. Also I think if you pre ordered dragon age origins there is some type of tie in special armor for ME2 as well. Red Dragon armor or some such.

    Yeah, if you pre-order Dragon Age Origins you can get the Blood Dragon Armor for ME2.
