Mass Effect 3's James Vega Gets Out of His Armour

BioWare's Casey Hudson has tweeted a new picture of Mass Effect 3's newest addition to Commander Shepard's crew, to celebrate reaching 10,000 followers on Twitter. James Vega is a human Systems Alliance soldier, who has supposedly been created to represent the mindset of a newcomer to the Mass Effect franchise, unfamiliar with intergalactic politics and all that jazz.
Still, Vega is an accomplished soldier, which should ensure that he's an invaluable asset to Shepard's squad. That said, he doesn't look like the sort of teammate we'd pick over Tali, Thane or Garrus. Then again, perhaps Vega will be able to win us over with a stellar personality that isn't conveyed in any way, shape or form in this image.
There's not a whole lot known about James Vega at present, but no doubt more details will emerge about the newest human to step on the Normandy SR2 in the run up to ME3's launch. Mass Effect 3 is out on March 6th, 2012.
