By now, you've seen that Mass Effect 3 has a release date of March 6th, 2012. What you didn't know is that BioWare and EA have announced a collector's edition for the game. The Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition is being labelled as the definitive edition for Mass Effect fans, and with good reason. The game comes in a premium metal case with commerative artwork of Commander Shepard on it. Inside is a 70 page hardcover art book featuring hundreds of unique artwork from the game's creators. There is also a limited edition Mass Effect comic book from Dark Horse that has a unique cover. You can add the fabric N7 patch to any piece of clothing you wear to make yourself look like Shepard. A 4x6 lithographic print featuring a one-of-a-kind artwork is included which any collector should be proud to display on their wall. For some in-game content, you will find the N7 Arsenal Pack (sniper rifle, shotgun, SMG, pistol), a robotic dog, alternate outfit for your favorite squadmate, and even an N7 hoodie for Shepard to wear while onboard the Normandy. You can even listen to the music of Mass Effect 3 with the included digital soundtrack. For Xbox 360 owners, you will get a Normandy prop for your Xbox Live Avatar. Finally, there are various forum and social badges, avatars, and perks to be used on the BioWare website.
Mass Effect 3 will launch on March 6th, 2012. The N7 Collector's Edition will be perhaps the best way to get the game and it will set you back $79.99.
