EA Store confirms Mass Effect 3

Save Earth from "terrifying machines".

Oops. Someone is about to get hauled in front of HR. The EA Store has seemingly just ended weeks of speculation and confirmed the existence of Mass Effect 3.

A product listing on EA's online shop spotted by Joystiq showed Mass Effect 3 as clear as day, along with a descriptive blurb that read: "Earth is burning. Striking from beyond known space, a race of terrifying machines have begun their destruction of the human race.

"As Commander Shepard, an Alliance Marine, your only hope for saving mankind is to rally the civilizations of the galaxy and launch one final mission to take back the Earth."

The listing, which unsurprisingly has since been yanked, offered no further information other than that BioWare's new game will be heading to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

So, that could be that then. Finally an end to all those increasingly tiresome Facebook teases. Look out for a full reveal tomorrow at the Spike VGA event in Los Angeles.
