BioWare has officially confirmed that the Mass Effect Trilogy edition will be available in Europe next week, setting the PC/Xbox 360 release date for Friday November 9th and dating the PS3 release for Wednesday December 7th. The original Mass Effect will presumably make its PSN debut on that date.
They've also helpfully explained what DLC comes with which version.
BioWare's Ryan Warden took to the blog to clear up what DLC to expect on each platform:
- The PlayStation 3 version of Mass Effect Trilogy will have the original Mass Effect with Bring Down the Sky integrated into the game, both on-disc and on the PSN download. Mass Effect 2 will still have the same DLC on-disc that it was originally shipped with: Cerberus Network; Kasumi; Overlord; and Lair of the Shadow Broker. Finally, Mass Effect 3 will also be exactly as it originally shipped.
- The Xbox 360 version will include all DLC that came with the original games – Cerberus Network with Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 remains unchanged as well.
- The PC is the same as Xbox 360, except both Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station are available for free – just as they are for all PC players who purchases each standalone product today.
Confusing? Yes, a little. Either way, PS3 players will be glad to know that "Mass Effect on the PS3 runs pretty damn well," apparently.
