Mass Effect 3, the conclusive episode of EA and BioWare's epic sci-fi trilogy, will be releasing on March 6th 2012.

The news came at EA's conference at this year's E3, with Casey Hudson showing a new, more involved combat system for the game. Shepard had an all-new melee attack, while the shooting seemed more refined.

The demo climaxed with an on-rails shooter section, with Shepard taking on a giant Reaper.

Expect to read more about Mass Effect 3 later this week.
