EA and BioWare have announced the pre-order plan for Mass Effect 3 today. With your pre-order you'll get the M55 Argus Assault Rifle. That's everybody, for pre-orders everywhere. Beyond that, for those that order at GameStop, you'll also get a N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle and the N7 Defender Armor. If you're a PC gamer pre-ordering through EA's Origin service, you'll get the AT-12 Raider Shotgun. 

You can get a better look at these items in our gallery below.

March 6, baby! I'm sure you've got a pre-order in, but if not, now you know where to go. Are you ready?

N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle – Deliver two rounds per shot with deadly accuracy and stop the opposition dead in their tracks with superior high caliber rounds. N7 Defender Armor – Improved shields and health, players can survive even the most punishing of battles and withstand sustained enemy fire.

The N7 Defender Armor also offers:

  • Increased ammo capacity. Additional ammunition compartments to ensure players are always battle-ready. 
  • Amplified weapon damage. Built-in power cells provide an additional punch to weapon fire. 

AT-12 Raider Shotgun fires a large pellet spread, ensuring maximum coverage for close-range targets. Designed for superior rapid fire, the AT-12 allows for optimal recovery time between shots.
