Speculation on Mass Effect 3 follows: ____________________________________
I was looking at some of the supposed pictures in the upcoming Game Informer, many of which focused on Shepard combatting an unknown enemy. At first I thought they were Reaper troops of some kind, but I though that there had to be a better explanation. What came to me then is that they are Cerberus Commandos, and I say this for the following reasons:
1. They are armed with what appears to be M-22 Eviscerator shotguns, which were released in the Cerberus Armor DLC
2. They are adorned in white armor (like the Normandy and Kodiak and Assault armor) and they have orange Cerberus style markings
3. All of the new enemies appear to be human, and I assume all Cerberus personnel are human (other than Shepard's squad)
4. There appears to be a white Kodiak shuttle behind a few of the enemies although the markings are unclear. We do know Cerberus paints Kodiak shuttles white...
This is all speculation, but if correct, I'm guessing Cerberus is going to be a very dangerous collection of enemies throughout the entirety of Mass Effect 3, maybe rivaling the Reapers, similar to how Mercenaries were in Mass Effect 2 even more than the collectors. Comments or Thoughts?
