Mass Effect fans have previously complained of being exposed to too many spoilers ahead of the launch of a new entry in the series, but that shouldn't be the case with Mass Effect 3.
Writing on the BioWare forums (via NeoGAF), the studio's Jarrett Lee teased: "I've seen the stuff in store for you guys in Mass Effect 3. Be excited, be very excited.
"Also, other than the attack on Earth, I think we'll try harder this time not to spoil things for you. By the time the game ships you'll be mad about the lack of story info ;).
"Thing is what makes Mass Effect awesome is the story - it's packed with major and minor plot points. Selling it as awesome only by talking about basic game features can be difficult - but we may see a move towards that this time."
He added: "It seems though that if we don't say enough about story, people jump to negative conclusions quickly. At any time, we'll keep a lid on stuff."
The first proper Mass Effect 3 details arrived today via US retailer mag Game Informer.
