Mass Effect 2 Box Art Revealed – Shows Sheppard, A Hot Woman and A Wrex Lookalike (Or Not?)

47 second read


Mass Effect 2 is still a long way away from being released but the folks from EA have already made their final decision on the games box art.

Our main generic Commander Shepard is back on the front cover but I find EA’s choice of two other characters to be very interesting indeed. While they don’t tell us who the characters are, they bare quite a resemblance to characters from the first game.

At the same time, I can understand the marketing strategy of “look, you are a super awesome hero and to make it all better there are hot chicks and aliens as well”.

Check out the full box art, poster after the jump.

    Maybe we will have human lesbian loving this time around.

    The background art style differs completely from what the first game looked like.

    Way to sneak in your logo on the box art!
    Gonna fool a lot of phools.. :ninja:

  • spl0it

    But wrex died 🙁

  • janrik

    My Wrex did not die!

  • Yeah Sploit, maybe in your game Wrex died, but not for everyone, but let’s try keep any sort of spoilers to a minimum for people who still want to play the game.

    Also, Wrex had a big scar on his eye, I don’t think this dude does.

  • spl0it

    Sorry :cwy:

  • darthdad

    Wrex dies! :unsure:

  • janrik

    LOL. Game is 2 years old, so yeah, not sure spoilers apply?

  • This is still another title I am still to play… To many games, not enough time

  • @janrik

    Ya, believe it or not, some people have not yet experienced the awesomeness of Mass Effect (shame on them)

  • Darkling

    Lol,I remember the other day a guy got crucified on the Gamespot forums because he said something about Halo 3’s ending! So,yeah,lotta people have to finish “older” games.. :silly:

  • Bboy

    I can’t stop thinking that dropping the ‘M’ from the title of the game would make it hella funny. ASS EFFECT 2!

    Wrex FTW!

  • Macethy

    I haven’t even played Halo 3 yet. . . :dizzy:

  • janrik

    I shudder at the thought….

  • Darkling

    We don’t take kindly to YOUR type here! :tongue:

  • janrik

    So to conclude, depending on how you play MassEffect, a Krogon named Wrex, may or may not die.

    And there is some lesbian alien sex involved, if you push the right buttons… :devil:

  • Guess I should run through the first one again and back up
    my save games in time for this.
    But ja, if stuff from your first game is suppose to link
    into this then that can’t really be Wrex, because some
    people won’t have him anymore.

  • Lupus

    They might have him in the second one, let’s not forget the possible deaths of a few more people that might or not happen 😀

  • WitWolfZA

    wrex doesnt die. if your renegade points are high enough yo can calm wrex down and get a achievement
