The accidental release of a beta for Mass Effect 3 over the weekend is the least of BioWare's problems at the moment. More worrying is the fact the game's entire story has leaked online.
We're not talking a few clips or scraps of info. We're talking big chunks of the game's plot, packed to the rafters with spoilers.
While BioWare says the leak originated from "internal story files" that are "out of date and [do] not reflect the final story experience", they're obviously cautioning fans to look out in forums and the like "if they want to experience the purest form of the story in Mass Effect 3".
To show how serious BioWare is about this, members of gaming forum NeoGAF claim the site has been issued with cease & desist letters after users posted some of the information.
Mass Effect 3 is out in March 2012. So stay on your toes!
