Mass Effect Limited Edition unveiled

Mass Effect Limited Edition unveiled

Mass Effect is laready looking good, will you pick up the Limited Edition version to get the complete experience?

Mass Effect is one of the most hotly anticipated RPGs since the seminal Oblivion and looks like it could bring a breath of fresh air to a genre which has arguably been a bit slow as of late. With a fantastic galaxy-spanning plot which sees players trying to save the universe from a rogue alien secret agent, it's no wonder that the game has garnered such acclaim before it has even been released.

So, what better way to get everybody ready than to tease gamers with details of what may or may not be in the Limited Edition version of the game?

Team Xbox has apparently managed to get a confirmation from developer Bioware on just what will be in the shiny tin box of the Limited Edition version. No sooner had this news gotten out though then Chris Priestly, Bioware's Community Coordinator, told fans that there were no details about the Limited Collectors Edition to be had at the moment.

Um, ok.

Either way, here's what Team Xbox have been told is going to be in the case. There's no price announced just yet, so you'll just have to speculate about how much it may cost you.

  • Galactic Codex: Essentials (Fiction book)
  • A Future Imagined (Mass Effect art book)
  • The Art and Interactive Storytelling of Mass Effect (Bonus DVD)

The whole kit and kaboodle will probably come packaged in a tin case, so let's just hope they can get the discs to remain secure.

How much would you pay for this lot? Are special editions like this a waste of money or do you actually watch/read the extra bits? Let us know what you think in the forums.

Thats boxset sounds promising, depending obviously what the art book is like! Shame it's only on the 360:( (which is why I'd probably never heard of it)

Pre-ordered mine from GAME a few months ago, and due to their lovely policy, if the price does go up to something stupid like the legendary edition, I'm still only playing £45 :D

Some limited editions (Assasins Creed on PC) are cheaper than the normal game. But I'm not one to go after them when its just artwork and back story. They all eventually get leaked onto the net anyway if I really wanted to read it.

I just watched some of the trailers and from what I've read on the site has a nice story line.

I've got another reason to add to my "why to buy a xbox 360" list now =)

Abaout as far from Halo as you can get (apart from the Sci-fi bit of course)

Looking good. The limited editions are the only thing that might make me buy a game for full price these day's with Gamefly and all.

the trailer looked cheesy to me. Faces looked pixelated and the mouths didn't move with the voices.....and the gameplay looked robotic in movement so I will have to see this game in action to really get me thinking positively about it, especially after playing as Master Chief a couple days ago.....
