Original Mass Effect Available For PS3 On December 4, Some DLC Included

The Mass Effect Trilogy, due out for PC and Xbox 360 on November 6, will be available for PlayStation 3 on December 4, BioWare announced today.

The trilogy brings the first Mass Effect game to the PS3 for the first time, although Mass Effect 2 and 3 were both available on the console. Where the trilogy gets more confusing is with DLC, and BioWare producer Ryan Warden tried to clarify that in the post on the BioWare blog where the PS3 release date was announced.

In summary, the DLC included with the first Mass Effect for each version is:

  • PS3: "Bring Down The Sky" included on-disc (or integrated with the stand-alone download version of the game)
  • PC: "Bring Down The Sky" and "Pinnacle Station" available as free DLC
  • Xbox 360: "Bring Down The Sky" and "Pinnacle Station" available on XBL Marketplace as paid DLC

Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, in all versions of the trilogy, ship with the same included content that the games originally did at launch, per platform, as outlined on the game's official site.
