Mass Effect 2 Trekking to PS3 on Jan. 18 in North America, Jan. 21 in Europe

Space explorers take note, Mass Effect's PlayStation debut has been dated for both North America and Europe.

Originally given the rather ambiguous date of January 2011, Electronic Arts told IGN that Mass Effect 2 will arrive on January 18 in North America and on January 21 in Europe.


The epic, role-playing title will feature a gaggle of bonus content including a new "interactive comic" outlining the events of the original--still Xbox 360 and PC-exclusive--game in the series.

Developer BioWare is set to introduce a new title during the 2010 Spike VGAs this weekend, initial speculation around the internet campfire is that the game is Mass Effect related.
