You can check the trailer out here or below.
Not only does it seem Shepard's Omni-Tool functions as a blade now, but was that a dodge/roll I saw Shepard do? Hopefully that's an actual maneuver and not a cinematic, as I've long felt the series needs a dodge option. There's obviously going to be some turret sequences, and Liara can be glimpsed briefly in the trailer as well.
And if the above wasn't cool enough, the Mass Effect 3: N7 Collector's Edition has also been announced! It will contain:
- A premium metal case (and Shepard looks very Renegade now)
- A hardbound art book
- A limited edition comic by Dark Horse Comics
- A fabric patch
- A lithographic 4x6 print
- Unique in-game content such as extra weapons, a robotic dog sidekick, and extra outfits
- The digital soundtrack
- A Normandy Avatar Prop (Xbox 360 Only)
- Forum badges, avatars, etc.

If this Collector's Edition is truly limited as Mass Effect 2's was, you will want to pre-order this to guarantee your copy. I know I'll be doing so.
Mass Effect 3 will release on the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 on March 6th, 2011.
