The PlayStation 3 version of science fiction role-playing game Mass Effect 2 will include an interactive comic designed to introduce newcomers to the series.

"While I can't release all the details about this yet, what I can tell you is that we want to create a stunning visual experience that not only tells the core story elements of Mass Effect 1, but also is fully interactive allowing you to be faced with some of the major choices which will have consequences your [sic] Mass Effect universe," producer Jesse Houston confirmed on BioWare's forum.

Does this mean Mass Effect 1 will never release for the PS3?

The game will also include previously released downloadable content: Lair of the Shadow Broker, Project Overlord, Kasumi: Stolen Memory and the Blood Dragon Armour.

Via the Cerberus Network you'll be able to grab The Zaeed and Firewalker content, also previously available, and exclusive free and premium DLC, including the Recon Operations Pack and the Aegis Pack.

Mass Effect 2 for PlayStation 3 will be out in January.
