EA have asked UK residents to sign a petition asking the government to hold an enquiry into aliens and release information held about our extra-terrestrial visitors.
However, EA seems to have overlooked the 5,000 page document already released by the government back in 2010, dubbed the British X-files, and which can still be read in full right here.
In it are detailed witness reports and statements of all UFO related incidents since the records began and the when UK actually set up a team to deal with it all.
Still, its a clever bit of advertising from the guys at EA.
A press release from EA detailed their plans:
As Commander Shepard prepares to defend the earth from the Reaper attack, Mass Effect 3 is urging fans of the game to sign a UK government petition calling for information held about UFOs and extra-terrestrials to be released and made public.Anyone interested in getting their name down can go through to the petition from here: http://www.petition.masseffect.com
There have been 609 unexplained UFO sightings in the UK since 1961, so the petition will serve to lobby the government and call for a public enquiry, asking for files held about visitors from other planets to be revealed.
Some would call it an enormous waste of public resources, but nutters who live in their mum’s shed with a home-made telescope rejoice and who knows – if they can get this mentioned in parliament they might be able to send Nick Clegg back to whatever deluded planet he was born on.
