The Mass Effect
series is my favorite videogame series of all time. I'm a sucker for science fiction and BioWare's magnum opus is the first videogame series to really offer me the something approaching the kind of fictional depth I can find in movies or books. And now today, BioWare has revealed (via Ray Mazyka's Twitter
, at least that's where I saw it) that all three games in the series are going to be packaged and sold as a boxed set in time for Christmas this year.
This five-disc boxed set, called the Mass Effect Trilogy
will obviously include all three games and Mass Effect 3
's popular multiplayer component. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with much in the way of extra goodies aside from a fancy premium foil box and some Commander Shepard artwork. However, don't get too down on this boxed set because it will only cost $59.99.
Also, even though the November 6th release date only applies to the PC and Xbox 360 versions, there is a Playstation 3 version of the Mass Effect Trilogy
is in the works that will, for the first time, allow PS3 gamers the opportunity to play the original Mass Effect
