Mass Effect Infiltrator now available on Android

Mass Effect Infiltrator is a mobile tie-in for Mass Effect 3. This side story follows Randall Ezno, a Cerberus agent that has "gone rogue." Developed by IronMonkey Studios, the game is a pretty decent touch screen adaptation of BioWare's sci-fi franchise, but fans will likely care most about the game's connection to the "Galaxy at War" system. By collecting intel in the game, you'll boost your "Galactic Readiness Rating" in Mass Effect 3, improving your chances on beating the Reaper threat in the game.
