It seems the Mass Effect series is finally going into space according to USAToday
, where EA are preparing to let off several weather balloons that have Mass Effect 3 attached to them.
Publisher Electronic Arts will be launching copies of the game into space using weather balloons that will be released in New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Berlin, London and Paris.
Each game has a GPS tracking device onboard and fans can track their return to the Earth on masseffect.com to find a copy and play it a week or more before the game hits stores. (Might not be a bad idea to follow @MassEffect, either.)
Sadly there isn't any weather balloons being sent from Australia, but who knows, maybe we might be lucky and it drifts over here. Hopefully no Reapers drift by and pick up a floating copy, would spell disaster for Earth.
Mass Effect 3 is out in stores and digital services March 6th for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Until then, you can check out the demo or float by our game page
