Mass Effect 3 was confirmed for a Holiday 2011 release at tonight's Spike Video Game Awards awards.
Set to take place on Earth, the game will see players travelling the universe attempting to rally the races of Citadel Space to take the human homeworld back and defeat the Reapers and their Collector army once and for all.
The trailer alluded to rumours of a new multiplayer element for the series, which will likely take place amidst the human resistance's battle with the Collector invasion force.
Platforms were not announced.
Finally we'll get to set foot on Earth within the Mass Effect universe!
