I'm sure many Mass Effect
fans remember the Cerberus New Network updates that ran for a year after Mass Effect 2
came out, and then sporadically since then.
Well, now, we have the Alliance News Network (@AllianceNewsNet
) that's been posting in-universe news items on the BioWare blog
and Twitter. Today, however, they've kicked it up a notch.
Starting about three hours ago, in-universe news anchor Emily Wong started live-tweeting the Reaper invasion. Starting out with simple tweets about strange communication disruptions, her tweets have since progressed to a first hand account of the Reapers hitting Los Angeles.
It's, at times, chilling to read. There's a new tweet every five minutes, but who knows how long it will last.
Mass Effect 3
comes out in less than 12 hours now.
