BioWare Announces Mass Effect Trilogy

Celebrate N7 Day with the entire Mass Effect saga.

There’s good news ahead for both fans of Mass Effect and people that have been on the fence on starting the saga of Commander Shepard. BioWare and EA are kicking off a new annual event on November 7 called N7 Day. What better way to inaugurate this new celebration than an all-new collection of the series that started it all? That’s exactly what you’re going to get with the Mass Effect Trilogy, coming on N7 Eve.

As you’ve probably guessed, all three Mass Effect games will be included in this collection for the Xbox 360, PC, and later on for the PS3. For those of you that played through Mass Effect 2 and 3 on the PS3 but always wanted to know how the story began, Mass Effect will also be available as a digital download on PSN. The press release is oddly quiet on what is included in this collection besides the actual games, so it’s possible that none of the DLC for the series is included.

Even though BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka announced his departure from the company, he was quick to let people know about the Mass Effect Trilogy on his Twitter account. This collection of Mass Effect comes out for Xbox 360 and PC November 6 for 59.99. The PS3 version has not been given a release date as of yet, and we also don’t know how much the stand-alone version of the first Mass Effect will be on PSN. Are you PS3 owners excited to get your hands on the entire series at last?

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Winner of over 300 awards. Recipient of over 200 perfect scores. A universe that has expanded beyond games to comics, novels, apparel, collectibles, action figures and more. The Mass Effect franchise has become one of the most heralded series in video game history. BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), today unveiled the Mass Effect Trilogy, a compilation of all three award-winning Mass Effect games in one box.

Our Take

Very surprised that there's no mention of a Wii U release. I wonder if there's a version planned and they didn't want to announce it for fear that they'd canibalize the upcoming sales of 3. Logically speaking, this would've been a much better thing to release instead of just 3.

Hopefully the delay of Mass Effect 3 for Wii U is related to this annoucement, and hopefully to the benefit of those wanting to try the Mass Effect series for their first time.
