Just less than a few days from the launch of what could possibly be a contender for 2012’s Game of the Year, Mass Effect 3 has been leaked online. The torrent for the Xbox 360 version of the game began to appear on torrent sites as early as yesterday. The PC version of Mass Effect 3 has been available for almost a week now but is not playable because a crack has yet to be developed. The size of the torrent is 15 GB, meaning the game will be on 2 discs for 360 players.
In typical 360 fashion, I’m sure there will be a update just shortly after the launch, and naturally, user’s Xboxs will be banned.
For the rest of us that actually pay for our games, BioWare announced yesterday some of the big midnight launch events. BioWare will be attending the events in Los Angeles, Edmonton, Chicago and Boston.
