Video game developer BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts have announced that they will be launching a Mass Effect Trilogy package, which includes the first three games in the franchise, on November 7 for the price of just 59.99 dollars or Euro.
The new package, which will also include the downloadable content that was created for the Mass Effect titles, will be initially available on the Xbox 360 and on the PC and those who want to play it on the PlayStation 3 will have to wait for a later launch date.
This will be the first time that the first Mass Effect
game will be offered on the Sony home consoles and players who already own the second and third one will be able to also download it as a standalone title via the PlayStation Network.
The official announcement from the two companies reads: “The Mass Effect trilogy follows the rise of Commander Shepard from Alliance Marine to becoming the galaxy’s most elite soldier – the only soldier who can lead an all-out galactic war against an ancient alien race known as the Reapers.”
It’s not yet clear whether BioWare plans to make any modifications to the first and second games in the series or whether they will arrive exactly as they were initially launched.
BioWare has also announced that it will celebrate the first ever N7 Day
on November 7 of this year, with a series of events aimed at fans of the series, which will be announced at a later date, both in the real world and in the third game in the series.
The introduction of the Mass Effect Trilogy is probably a clear sign that BioWare will no longer create Commander Shepard powered titles in the series, even if the developer has already revealed that a new game in the franchise is being created.
