If you’re still seeking that little bit more from Mass Effect 3, EA has something for you. Fresh from the App Store, the Mass Effect 3 Datapad is a pretty impressive bit of kit, and something that promises to improve your gaming experience. All you have to do is download the App (it’s free!), and you’ve got the entire Mass Effect Codex at your fingertips.
…you don’t even have to read them all yourself: Many entries also feature voiceovers that have been lifted directly from the games, so the codex will literally read itself to you.
You’re tasked with deploying fleets across the galaxy, and then waiting for them to return, before sending them out again to earn credits. As you pick up these bonus points, they can be used to improve and upgrade your ships, increase the odds of success, and speed up deployment times.
In addition to these two, there are some additional bits and pieces thrown into the Datapad as well: Wallpapers, trailers, a Twitter feed, and even email from characters you’ve met within Mass Effect 3.
