BioWare announces the Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition

In true BioWare fashion, Mass Effect 3 will be receiving its own special edition of the game – in the form of the N7 Collector’s Edition.

An exceptional package, the Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector’s Edition will come chock full of goodies that make the $79.99 price tag well worth paying. This edition will be available alongside the regular edition of the game at launch.

After E3 2011, Mass Effect 3 certainly has been the focus of a lot of media buzz, and with good reason: It looks fantastic.

E3 brought gamers the first taste of the revamped combat gameplay in the Mass Effect series as well as Kinect integration (in the form of voice commands). The regular package is already going to be pleasing to gamers, but the N7 version will blow them away.

What will your extra $10 get you? Take a gander at the picture inventory and find out for yourself (click to enlarge):

BioWare is pulling out all the stops to make Mass Effect 3 the best game of the trilogy and the N7 Collector’s Edition is just one way the company is going about that objective.

With new combat, Kinect integration, and closure to one of the most epic space opera stories told in recent years, Mass Effect 3 is going to be one of the biggest titles for this generation of consoles – the only difficult part is all the waiting fans will have to endure.
