BioWare has revealed the second party member to join Commander Shepard's motley crew in Mass Effect 2, Grunt, a violent and unpredictable Krogan fighter.

Grunt joins the assassin Thane as part of Shepard's decidedly darker posse in the second game in BioWare's epic space adventure. He may be untamed and untrustworthy, but he's an important part of this space breakfast.

"The Mass Effect trilogy is an epic, action-filled saga with consequences that will carry through from chapter to chapter," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Group General Manager and Senior Vice President, Electronic Arts, and co-founder and CEO, BioWare. "Building out a diverse and loyal party is one of the features that makes the Mass Effect series quite unique. The characters Commander Shepard recruits are not only pivotal to the storyline, but essential to the player's overall success."

Nice to meet you, Grunt!
