BioWare has released the first footage of Mass Effect 2.

The teaser clip shows no gameplay footage, but instead lists known details of protagonist Shephard before proclaiming him/her "killed in action". The clip closes with what appears to be a Geth destroyer zapping the camera with its laser eye.

So far that's more or less all we know about the sequel, although we've heard BioWare is planning "much darker" experience based around the differences of organic to synthetic life.

EA has said Mass Effect 2 will be released by April 2010, and on multiple platforms. Neither developer nor publisher has explained whether that includes PS3.

Head over to Eurogamer TV for that very first Mass Effect 2 teaser.
