Mass Effect 3 FemShep Trailer is Finally Here
Back in June of last year, in response to a group of passionate fans, BioWare announced that they would give the female version of Commander Shepard her own trailer. It was supposed to be released some time last summer, but months went by without much word. This week, on Twitter, David Silverman (edit: fixed wrong first name!) dropped a few hints about the trailer being released before the Mass Effect 3 demo is made available on Valentine's Day. Finally, Silverman declared today to be #FemShepFriday. The long-awaited trailer is below, or you can watch it here. Happy FemShep Friday! Brb, watching trailer again.
