     Alliance flagged Normandy
     Alliance flagged Normandy
    Dark Horse product page shows a replica of Normandy SR-2, now repainted with Alliance colors and logos.
    The product description also slips word of a release month of ME3, though there have been no official word about that.

    @Dark Horse Digital Comics

     We join the legions of gamers and graphic-story fans who've been anticipating the October release of the new Mass Effect game.

    We proudly announce the release of a custom-crafted miniature version of the SSV Normandy. This is the first replica of the Normandy, and we couldn't be more excited in bringing it forward.

    So what do you reckon? Is October too soon or will that be the better month to get the game out the door?
    Though more importantly: Does the Normandy go well in blue?

    Update: Release date is obviously shattered, now that the game has been officially pushed back to 2012.

    No chance in hell this comes out on October. I really hope it does, but there's just no way.

    Well Gameinformer did say that the Alliance confiscated the Normandy to see what Cerberus did with it

    It looks beautiful by the way

    Yeah, I'm guessing Shepard is working a lot more closely with the Alliance again in Mass Effect 3. The artwork of Garrus also hints at that seeing as he has what looks like an Alliance uniform underneath his armor.

    Edit: I bet the game will get delayed to early 2012

    Yeah I suspect the Alliance will assimilate some of the crew to help them get up to speed on what's new with the ship. Garrus being the gunnery chief would be a rather valuable member to have to get an in-depth update of the weapons systems.
    I wonder what will happen to a lot of the Cerberus personnel though. Most of them are loyal to Shepard, of course, but they aren't military so why would the Alliance want to keep them around? Especially if they ground Shepard and strip him of his command of the ship during his hearing regarding Arrival.

    The Normandy looks awesome. I could see it being in October. It gets out ahead of COD, Skyrim and Uncharted that way.

    Whenever it comes out, it better be a couple months away from Skyrim. Don't make me choose between the two!

    October..? My birthday is in October... so if the release date holds some weight then that's awesome, but I highly doubt it will actually come out in October.

    If they're truly confident with this release and it's now to more of EA pressuring a quicker release, then I would love an October debut. It's fairly plausible as well, with all the talk of how they've planned this series as a trilogy to begin with; game's easier to develop because it ends said trilogy, no future arching variables to stress over yadda yadda.
    I don't think I'd ever have my worry completely sated with such an early release, though, so I wouldn't be fussed to find if it does move up to an early-mid 2012 release.

    I wouldn't mind actually if it got pushed to early 2012, if Mass Effect 2 had come out during that flurry of releases in late 2009 I would have never gotten around to it. This year is an even crazier last quarter so I don't particuarly want another multiple hour game stacked on there.

    This is an odd fascination of mine, but I sort of want the game to come out and be mind-blowingly terrible.  Awful storyline, derailed characters, horrendous gameplay... not because I don't like the series.  I love it to death!  I just want to see the reactions that people would have if they totally phoned it in for the last game in the trilogy.  They would totally lose it, and it would be amazing to see.

    Understand, however, I want that way less than I want for it to actually be a good game.  It's just sort of a running idea in my head that won't go away.

    It has plenty to do with the devolution of Bioware's philosophy in general.

    Blue is a lot better than that nasty Cerberus orange.

    well Dark Horses was in charge of doing the ME-related comics, and those were sanctioned by Bioware, so anything in the comics are consider canon (Jack Harper is TIM).


    This repainted Normandy pretty much confirms:
    Shepard betrays Cereberus to re-joins Alliance so he can bed Ash/Kai.

    Goes well with my armour. Blue, black, silver. Awesome.

    Also I have Zakera Ward souvenirs reserving one of these ship models for me. Maybe not within Shepard's price range and maybe not a must-have but it's just right for a vigilante's salary.
