Mass Effect Trilogy Announced, Brings Original Mass Effect To PS3

Share And Comment

PlayStation 3 owners were a littler late to the Mass Effect party, with the Sony version of Mass Effect 2 launching several months after the PC and 360 versions of the game, although Mass Effect 3 was released simultaneously across all the platforms. The original Mass Effect however was published by Microsoft Game Studios and therefore only ever released on XBOX 360 and PC. Until now that is.

This holiday season will see the release of a Mass Effect Trilogy bundle package which will as its name suggests the compilation of all three of the epic sci-fi RPG’s. PlayStation gamers will get to play the original game as part of this bundle or by downloading Mass Effect via the PSN store. Although the shooting mechanics of the first Mass Effect game were a great deal more simplistic and some of the sub-missions frustrating, it was and still is a great game, with perhaps more RPG elements that later games in the series. If you have never played any of the Mass Effect games its also a great place to start, although it has yet to be confirmed, all versions should let you carry on your save game between all three titles.

The Mass Effect Trilogy will be released on November 6th (yes, Halo 4 day!) for XBOX 360 and PC for $59.99, with the PS3 version to follow shortly afterwards. As you can see above, the game will be released in a gorgeous looking package,  holding the disks for all three games. The PSN release of Mass Effect 1 should also be around this time. No news yet of a Wii U release which is a shame considering the third game is slated as a launch title for the system, but its possible this could follow on later down the line.
