Mass Effect 2 Prelude to E3 video is a go, exciting

We told you that a new Mass Effect 2 pre-E3 trailer would be falling into our laps today, and now we've finally got our hands on it.

The new video says that there will be a behind-closed-doors demo at E3. Woo! We'll do our best to get behind those doors, as people will actually play a demo there. What follows is a lot of new detail on the upcoming game. They call it a "better-feeling, better-playing game," a darker story with a darker style that includes "big action."

One interesting aspect is the carry-over from the first Mass Effect. They say that if you killed off a race in the first game, you won't see them in the second one.

In the end, this teaser does nothing more than tease us, but did it ever work! From what they say in the video, we'll actually hear the plot of Mass Effect 2 during this demo session. Can't wait!

Enjoy the video after the jump.

[Update: a high-definition streaming video is here.]
