Still haven’t played any of the Mass Effect games? Then perhaps you’ll want to think about purchasing the Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation.

EA announced the package just a few minutes ago. It includes all three Mass Effect games in one box.

Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation launches on the Xbox 360 and PC on November 6. It’s coming to the PlayStation 3 “at a later date.”

Take a look at the official announcement below.

BioWare Delivers the Ultimate Value This Holiday Season With the Mass Effect Trilogy Compilation

Get all Three Critically-Acclaimed Mass Effect Games for One Low Price this Holiday and Join BioWare in Celebrating Commander Shepard on November 7th for “N7 Day”

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Winner of over 300 awards. Recipient of over 200 perfect scores. A universe that has expanded beyond games to comics, novels, apparel, collectibles, action figures and more. The Mass Effect franchise has become one of the most heralded series in video game history. BioWare, a division of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: EA), today unveiled the Mass Effect Trilogy, a compilation of all three award-winning Mass Effect games in one box. Available in stores beginning November 6, 2012 for only $59.99, the Mass Effect Trilogy is the perfect holiday gift for longtime fans or friends who have yet to experience Commander Shepard’s epic journey to save the galaxy.

Coinciding with the launch of Mass Effect Trilogy, BioWare will kick off the first annual “N7 Day,” a worldwide celebration of the Mass Effect franchise on November 7, 2012. Stay tuned to http://MassEffect.com for updates and announcements for a variety of in-game, online and live events which fans can congregate and fly their N7 colors.

The Mass Effect trilogy follows the rise of Commander Shepard from Alliance Marine to becoming the galaxy’s most elite soldier – the only soldier who can lead an all-out galactic war against an ancient alien race known as the Reapers. Heart-pounding action meets gripping interactive storytelling as players decide how their unique story unfolds over all three games. With a team of loyal soldiers at their side, each player decides how they will save the galaxy, from the weapons and abilities they utilize to the relationships they forge or break.

The Mass Effect Trilogy will be available on the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system and PC on November 6, and will be available at a later date for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Mass Effect, the game which started it all, will be available on PlayStation 3 for the first time through the Mass Effect Trilogy and digitally as a standalone title via the PlayStation Network.

I would consider it *if* all the DLC was bundled with it.

Yeah same here, it's a pretty good deal but I want the "complete" experience.

I would bet the DLC for the first two would be included (aside from Arrival, it was all included in the PS3 version of ME2).

However, ME3 still has future single-player DLC coming out. Hell, Omega should be out soon.

I would've bought this if they did the following:
  • Bundled all the DLC for each game (with the exception of the latest ME3 DLC)
  • Ported ME1 and ME2 to the ME3 engine (which is just a BioWare-updated version of Unreal Engine 3)
  • Info: BioWare ported ME2 to the ME3 engine for the PS3 so it isn't outside the realm of possibility
As good as ME1 was, the version of UE3 it uses is severely outdated. It lacks the global illumination and character lighting updates that made ME2 look much better graphically.

I already own em so why bother, but it's cool for people who've been on the fence about it I guess.

I could get it for my bro, but I've bought enough stuff he's never played so :p

PS3 owners rejoice - Mass Effect has passed SCEA certification. Just need SCEE certification and the game is gold. Amazon is posting a Dec. 4th release date.
