Yes, but that doesn't mean anything. You can't defeat them straight away obviously, lest the game last only 5 minutes. And you can't fight 200-300 Reapers interactively regardless. So the logical conclusion is that you will spend the vast majority of the game running around small linear areas hiding behind cover shooting at humanoids before finding some magical solution and using it to kill all the Reapers in a cutscene at the end. Seeing as how Cerberus have conveniently turned against you in the face of impending galactic doom, I suspect there will be no shortage of said humanoids. And of course they have shown a few new Reaper creations that look like something out of Doom, which I'm sure they'll sprinkle in for a touch of flavour.
