This week’s roundup is about Mass Effect 3D models.
Mass Effect is a science fiction video game that puts the player in the middle of the fictional version of the Milky Way of the year 2183. The video game revolves around a soldier – the Commander Shepard – who has the difficult task to save the galaxy from Reapers, a mechanical beings race.
So far, there have been released three Mass Effect video game installments that have been hugely popular among gamers with a fourth one in the making that is expected to hit the market in 2017.
Until the next installment, though, here’s a roundup of some of the best Mass Effect 3D models.
1. Resurrected Garrus Vakarian
