Mass Effect 3 is the third and final installment of the Mass Effect trilogy, developed by BioWare and published by EA Games. The player again assumes the fully customisable role of Commander Shepard as the Reapers launch their invasion of the galaxy. As with previous games, the player is able to carry over save files from Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, where the choices they made in those games will affect their experience in Mass Effect 3.

Due to controversy over the ending, players have the option of downloading the Mass Effect 3 - Extended Cut DLC for free, which expands on the original ending with additional dialogue and cutscenes.

100px-ME3 Eye of the Hurricane Eye of the Hurricane Kill a Brute when its charging you. This achievement can also be earned in multiplayer. 10/Bronze
This achivement can be awkward, but if done correctly can be easy. To earn this achivement you must kill a Brute while it is performing its special Charge attack. The best way to do this is to get it down to half a quarter health then get far away from it, forcing it to perform its Charge attack. It will squat down right before it charges, which works as a signal to open fire. Note that if you don't move out of the way as you shoot, the Brute will hit you and interrupt your attack. If you are having trouble, try using the Adrenaline Rush power to slow down time. Brutes are encountered on most missions where the enemies are the Reapers, starting with Priority: Palaven
