Electronic Arts have announced a host of Mass Effect 3 pre-order DLC that will be available in the UK from select retailers. Electronic Arts seem to favour GAME and their Origin service at the moment so we aren't surprised with which retailers have the really exclusive DLC.
The Pre-order exclusive items are all a host of weapons/armour, there are two store exclusives and then a slightly more generic bonus that is through other select retailers that haven't been mentioned yet.
If you pre-order from a GAME store you'll be given a code for:
N7 Warfare Gear
N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle — Delivers two rounds per shot with deadly accuracy and stops the opposition dead in their tracks with superior high caliber rounds.
N7 Defender Armor — Gives the player improved shields and health, allowing them to survive even the most punishing of battles and withstand sustained enemy fire.
As well as improved shields and health the N7 Defender Armor also offers:
Increased ammo capacity and Amplified weapon damage.
From a pre-order through EA's Origin service you can look forward to:
AT-12 Raider Shotgun
The AT-12 Raider Shotgun fires a large pellet spread, ensuring maximum coverage for close-range targets. Designed for superior rapid fire, the AT-12 allows for optimal recovery time between shots. Plus as this is an Origin pre-order bonus this of course means this shotgun is a PC exclusive for now.
Electronic Arts have also stated that other participating retailers will be giving out:
M55 Argus Assault Rifle
The Argus boasts quick burst-fire to ensure ammo conservation and maximum accuracy on the battlefield, making it a great asset at any range.
Mass Effect 3 is due out for release on March 9th on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Windows. Don't forget to pre-order your Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition if you want to get some extra digital and physical goodies on launch. Currently you can only pre-order the collector's edition from GAME and their other stores such as Gamestation so make sure to get a pre-order in before they sell out.
