BioWare have just released the official Mass Effect Trilogy trailer. It features some of the most epic moments from Mass Effect 2 and 3, but strangely pays almost no respect to the first game in the series.
The Mass Effect Trilogy packs together three of the most highly regarded video games of the current generation. Set in the year 2183, it tells the story of commander Shepard, an alliance soldier who must prevent a highly evolved race of intelligent machines from wiping out all organic life in the galaxy. The series started in 2007 with the release of Mass Effect for the Xbox 360. It enjoyed much critical acclaim and despite some technical issues was widely considered to be one of the best games available on the platform(and still is). The game was later ported to PC where it was also very well received. This continued with Mass Effect 2 being released on both platforms in 2010 and a year later ported to the PlayStation 3. The game was loved by critics even more than its predecessor, scoring a whopping 96 on metacritic. The third game was released in March of this year on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 introduced multiplayer to the franchise. While it wasn’t as well received as its predecessor, it still managed to score a very impressive 93 on metacritic.
The Trilogy will feature all three games along with some of the DLC(Bring Down The Sky, Kasumi’s Stolen Memory, Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker and will come out on Xbox 360 and PC on November 6th and PS3 on December 4th. This will be the first time Mass Effect 1 is available on Sony’s Platform.
