The Mass Effect Trilogy
includes all three games in the Mass Effect franchise, launching for Xbox 360 and PC on November 6 and at a later date for PS3, and it'll look something like that photo up there. The Trilogy
will come with DLC as well, BioWare clarifies
The PC version will get Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station for the first Mass Effect
; Mass Effect 2
comes with the Cerberus Network, which includes Zaeed – The Price of Revenge, The Firewalker Pack, Cerberus Assault Gear, Arc Projector heavy weapon, and Normandy Crash site mission. Mass Effect 3
includes the Online Pass with access to multiplayer.
Xbox 360 won't get Bring Down the Sky or Pinnacle Station on-disc, but both will be available as standalone DLC via Xbox Live. Mass Effect 2
gets the Cerberus Network and Mass Effect 3
the Online Pass.
Information about PS3 DLC is coming "soon." The original Mass Effect
will launch as a digital standalone on PSN on the same day the Trilogy
launches for PS3, for $15.
is compatible with other versions of the Mass Effect games, meaning players can transfer saves from previous games to the Trilogy
games, and Mass Effect 3
multiplayer is playable between versions. Considering the Trilogy
is Mass Effect repackaged for the holiday rush, it'd be more surprising if the games were truly a separate beast and weren't compatible with previous releases.
There's still no sign of the Trilogy
coming to Wii U, which gets Mass Effect
3 on launch day, November 18 in the US. The Wii U version includes
the Extended Cut ending and the From Ashes DLC.
