EA has just announced the Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation, and if you haven’t played any of the Mass Effect games, then you’re in for one of the most epic sci-fi stories ever told, and arguably one of the most important original game franchises to grace this triple-A saturated console generation.
The rest of us who’ve already blasted through the latter two Mass Effect games will now be able to play, and earn trophies in, the original for the first time on PS3 ever through the collection, or as a standalone digital download courtesy of the PlayStation Store.
On November 7th, EA will be kicking off the first annual “N7 Day” which they’re describing as a “worldwide celebration of the Mass Effect franchise” N7 Day will feature:
a variety of in-game, online and live events which fans can congregate and fly their N7 colors.
The Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation will release a day before N7 day on November 6th for the Xbox 360, and PC, while the PS3 version is said to arrive at “a later date”
Why is the Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation releasing later on the PS3? Maybe EA, or BioWare still need to port it to the PS3? Or perhaps EA have to wait until November 20th – the five year anniversary of the original release – if Microsoft tied down ME1 to a 5 year exclusivity agreement.
Are you excited for ‘N7 Day’? Planning on picking up the Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation? Or are you just baffled by Mass Effect 1‘s sudden PlayStation release? Let us know in the comments!
