Mass Effect Trilogy

There has been a Mass Effect Trilogy collection confirmed on the Bioware-Mass Effect site. The trilogy will be available for purchase on November 6th for $59.99. The collection will be available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and for the PC. No word yet on a Wii U trilogy package, but Mass Effect 3 will be available on the November 18th launch date for the Wii U.

The Mass Effect series are role playing games that revolve around the character Commander Shepard. The series takes place in outer space and are played from the third person shooter perspective. The first game was release back in 2007, its successor was released in January 2010, and the final game was released March of this year. The story follows Shepard on his missions to bring down the Reapers and save the galaxy.

The Trilogy will come with 5 discs- one for Mass Effect and two each for Mass Effect 2 and 3. The collection will be compatible with the other versions of the games just in case you were thinking about going on the multiplayer or continuing from one of your already established save files. So the first Mass Effect was suppose to be an Xbox exclusive then was later made for the PC. Well finally the first game of the Mass Effect series will be available either through the collection or as a standalone from the PSN store at $14.99.

The downloadable content for the Playstation 3 has not been announced, but there are differences between the Xbox and PC DLC packages. For the Xbox the Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station will not be available on disk, but they will be available on the PC disk. The DLC will be available to download through the Xbox live dashboard, but included with the package I am not sure. The Cerberus Network DLC will be included for both the Xbox and PC versions as well as the Online passes for the multiplayer for Mass Effect 3.

This is a great way for Bioware to get latecomers on board with the series. I have not played any of the Mass Effect games, but all three games plus DLC for $59.99 very tempting. The trilogy will also include exclusive artwork from the Mass Effect world.

Have you played the game? How did you feel about the way the series turned out? If you haven't played the series will you be jumping on board with this deal?
