BioWare Deploys Mass Effect Trilogy from 4th December

Make sure you Geth it

In an epic blog post worthy of the Pulitzer Prize, developer BioWare has confirmed that the Mass Effect Trilogy will take flight on 4th December in North America and 7th December in Europe. That means that the first title in the series – which originally launched as a Microsoft published Xbox 360 exclusive way back in 2007 – will finally be playable on the PlayStation 3.

You’ll be able to purchase all three titles together at retail, or individually from the PlayStation Store. The original game will ship with the Bring Down the Sky add-on automatically included, though there’s no word on Pinnacle Station. Meanwhile, Mass Effect 2 will come with the Kasumi, Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker expansions. Unsurprisingly, you’ll need to splash out in order to secure Mass Effect 3’s DLC.

You can learn a little more about the port of the original game over on the BioWare Blog. It's an interesting read – assuming you've got a week or two to spare.

How do people feel about the first? I seriously couldn't get into 2 and haven't finished it. I think it's because the story was very recruitment oriented. From what I've heard of the first, it sounds like the story is a lot better than the second but the graphics aren't as good. Is this true?

@ztpayne7 The first game is really more of a stand-alone story than its two sequels. I mean, it leads into ME2 of course, but its plot can stand on its own quite easily. The combat is shoddy at best and the graphics are very bland when compared to ME2, but it's still a fun game if you like Mass Effect. Just don't expect the same level of polish lol

The first one is only going to cost $14.99 on PSN which is pretty awesome.

As much as I love the series, there is to much other good new stuff for me to have time to go back and look at the original. They would have to massively update it for me to bother.

The first Mass Effect is definitely an older game, but the story is great, and the art is really good. I can't wait to get my shiny new PS3 trilogy! It will be great to revisit the game five years later, and to be able to play them together in sequence. Full immersion in the Mass Effect universe for a few weeks? Yes please!

As for the Pinnacle Station DLC, one of the BioWare producers said on twitter that they can't offer it anymore. Too bad, but I guess that's one of the dangers of re-releasing older material.
