* By now people have noticed the "four main quests to complete, SURPRISE {{Reveal}} after the third, and then upshift into the endgame" formula that Bioware uses for its biggest hits like ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', the original ''[[VideoGame/MassEffect1 Mass Effect]]'', and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins''. (Disclaimer: I have never played ''BaldursGate'' or ''NeverwinterNights'', or indeed finished ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', so I do not know if those actually subvert the formula in any way.) ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' mucked with that a little bit by making the majority of the quests largely focused on the characters before upshifting into the endgame. It follows, then, that ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' will not adhere to the aforementioned formula in the ''slightest.'' Sure, it'll be about Shepard's final battle against the Reapers, but you won't be gathering allies like ''Franchise/DragonAge'' or [=MacGuffins=] like ''Videogame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. It will be this crazy new formula that no one is expecting and will blow everyone's minds. Extreme LoveItOrHateIt will ensue, and no one will be sure quite what to make of it all, but the game will receive several confused Game of the Year nominations because of it.

** [[{{Meshakhad}} This troper]] envisioned a scenario whereby you use [[TheConduit Conduits]] to move troops between multiple worlds. Having the rachni, geth, and/or krogan on your side will make it possible to get an EverybodyLives ending.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The citadel relay was used after the Fall of Thessia to send a multi-species team to the Andromeda Galaxy]]
Since the relay links to the intergalactic medium and the Reapers are currently here, a small team of soldiers, scientists and diplomats were sent out of the Milky Way as a contingency. They would drift at light speed for millenia till they reached Andromeda at which point they were to either colonize and repopulate, build a new alliance with spacefaring races there to attack the reapers, or build new mass relays that will allow more people to escape the Milky Way harvest. The fourth game will be about one of these teams.

[[WMG: When the Reapers realized the humans will defeat them, some escaped to other universes to eventually come back and finish the humans once and for all: returning as [[{{Halo}} The Flood]], [[VideoGame/{{Resistance}} The Chimera]], [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 The Combine]], [[{{Metroid}} The X-Parasites]], and [[GearsOfWar The Locust]].]]

One of the planets that can be mined is called "[[MeaningfulName Trident]]", and is described as a planet covered almost entirely by water, with ocean life ranging from microbial to terrifying monsters. Shepard will visit Trident, and the entire level will be an {{expy}} of [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Manaan.]]

* Another likely possibility is that each player will choose their option and it will randomly determine who actually speaks, which is the system they're using for TheOldRepublic.

There are so many wars in the history of the galaxy to make it worthwhile. It will be a similar style to ''Star Wars: Empire At War'' but with a greater emphasis on individual squads like ''DawnOfWar II''. Campaigns will include:

[[WMG: Cerberus's army is a [[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon Replica army]]]].

[[WMG: Cerberus's army is a [[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon [[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon Replica army]]]].



Each soldier in the Cerberus army is implanted with a quantum entanglement device allowing them to remotely be controlled from a master controller (most likely a Reaper). Should this controller be destroyed, the soldiers will all [[FirstEncounterAssaultRecon "shut down"]] and go into a state of hibernation, doing absolutely nothing except standing still and breathing.
