Major plot details for Mass Effect 3 have been posted online following the disastrous leak of an internal Mass Effect 3 beta this weekend.
The beta was only accessible to a select few US gamers who'd opted to take part in the closed preview of its fall Xbox 360 dashboard update.
However story details extracted from the beta code have been posted on a Russian forum, revealing major spoilers to anyone stupid enough to read them.
BioWare has updated with a new statement, warning gamers to stay well away from the leaked texts: "We are still investigating, but it appears that some internal story files have been leaked," confirmed ME3 producer Jesse Houston.
"Even though the information in those files is out of date and does not reflect the final story experience, we urge fans not to read them if they want to experience the purest form of the story in Mass Effect 3."
