A Tweet from Mass Effect executive producer Casey Hudson a mere five minutes ago tells the tale many gamers want to hear: Mass Effect 3 has gone gold.
After an awesome effort by our team, I’m proud to announce #MassEffect3 is officially GOLD! Many surprises await you – this week and beyond.

Mass Effect 3 will conclude the tale of Commander Shepard as you attempt to save the galaxy from the Reapers. Players with saves from Mass Effect or Mass Effect 2 will be able to import their characters, opening up additional features such as origin story components and additional dialog.
The release date is March 6, 2012, and it will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
