WE have been waiting since a long time for the arrival of Mass Effect 3, and after the first and second episode WE were very curious about BioWare’s new game and its Collector’s Edition as well. A pack looks exactly like the ME2’s special release, so it comes in a cardboard box. Although the paper is a bit thinner than before, but embossed parts (also on its back) and beautiful N7 logo will compensate us.
Inside you will find the Steelbook, and a paper container, which is made of high-quality paper. It feels nice to touch and is decorated with a unique, good-looking artwork. This holds the N7 velcro patch, a Normandy lithograph, a comic book by Dark Horse, and a hardcover art book. The richly illustrated, 70-page publication shows different drawings, concept arts, and some interesting information about the Mass Effect universe.
Next piece of the pack is the Mass Effect 3 Steelbook, which is almost the same as the second episode’s one. The metal case has a matte surface, but male Shepard on the front, and female on the back have a shiny finish. After opening the metal case you can see the inner cover art, two discs, and some vouchers with the Online Pass and a 2-day Xbox Live Gold access. N7 Collector’s Edition also features the following downloadable contents: bonus squad appearances, weapons (N7 Crusader, N7 Eagle, N7 Hurricane, N7 Valient), N7 hoodie for Shepard, Robotic dog, Avatar item, digital soundtrack, and the upcoming Prothean DLC containing a new mission and a character.
