BioWare shows off Mass Effect 2's Vanguard class


Until that magical day when BioWare announces Wrex Effect, it looks like we’ll have to get comfortable with controlling Mr. Blank Slate, Commander Shepard. But even though we can’t play as the rough and gruff space toad in Mass Effect 2, we can become him. Sort of.

Follow us, here. The Vanguard class in the Mass Effect universe is all about getting in enemies faces and then blasting off said faces with a combination of short-ranged weaponry and biotic powers. In Mass Effect 2 specifically, Vanguards will be able to use the “Charge” attack again, which makes Sheppard move around like The Flash after a cocaine binge. Nothing says proximity like a good old fashioned Krogan rush, right? Right?
