Mass Effect 2 will launch on the 29th January across Europe it has been announced this evening.

BioWare mentioned the details on its official blog which also gave a 26th January launch for North America. Over the pond you’ll be able to pre-order the game and get some bonus material of which we’ve shamelessly copied and pasted below for you:

In North America, pre-order bonuses include special-ops armor and weaponry that are designed to boost Commander Shepard’s skills and abilities. At GameStop, Terminus Gear is available with pre-orders, which includes the powerful Terminus Assault Armor and the Blackstorm Heavy Weapon:

  • The Terminus Armor is designed for use in extreme planetary conditions, increasing run speed and personal shields, and augmenting weapons with an additional magazine of reserve ammo.
  • The M-90 Blackstorm Heavy Weapon generates a high-powered localized gravity well, accelerating particles to near-infinite mass, and ultimately expanding the selection of heavy weapons available to players when they gear up for combat missions in Mass Effect 2.

Inferno Armor

Players that pre-order Mass Effect 2 at other retail outlets in North America will receive the potent Inferno Armor, which is used by officers to monitor battlefield conditions by recognizing elevated heart rates, and regulates sub-systems with extreme efficiency to allow for greater response times – together these abilities translate in-game into a negotiation bonus for Commander Shepard and an increase in run speed and augmented damage from combat powers.

Of course Mass Effect 2 was pushed back, partly due to the hype surrounding Modern Warfare 2, which is out next month. We’ll keep you informed if any pre-order bonuses arrive in Europe.
