“Mass Effect: Andromeda” is BioWare’s newest game and one of the most anticipated titles of 2017. As a child of the original trilogy, it has some pretty high standards set upon it and BioWare have made sure that the hype will go for as far as the game is released. Here are the latest news surrounding the title.

It is reported by GameRanx that ”Mass Effect: Andromeda” will have a post-launch DLC added to digital deluxe editions. Most gamers are familiar with EA’s policies on various different editions for their game, adding different sets of content, which have been only surpassed by UbiSoft’s spreadsheet editions. “Mass Effect: Andromeda” will not be spared by it, as there are three digitally available editions of the game. Standard edition includes the game only. Deluxe edition adds Scavenger Armor, Pet Pyjak, Digital Soundtrack, a post-launch multiplayer DLC coming in May and a few other goodies. Super Deluxed edition adds a multiplayer boost to the Digital Edition additives.

GameRant shares additional information on the madness that is EA’s release policy. “Mass Effect: Andromeda” will have two special retail editions. First is the Deluxe retail edition, which comes paired with a die-cast model of the planetary rover “Nomad”. It is a stationary collectible, but still holds some value. EA offers also a $200 Collector’s Edition of “Mass Effect: Andromeda”, it comes paired with a fully operational “Nomad”, which, let’s admit it, is pretty awesome. The problem is that the $200 Collector’s Edition does not come with the game included in it. This means that anyone who purchases it has to cough out at least $60 more for the game itself.

Those who need further proof can visit IGN’s site, where an unboxing video of “Mass Effect: Andromeda” Collector’s Edition has been shared. In the articles paired with the video is stated that the $200 Collector’s Edition does not include the game itself. It is not visible in the video too. This brings about the question of should EA even call it “Mass Effect: Andromeda” Collector’s Edition and is it not misleading advertising, as it may lead a buyer to believe that the game is included in this edition. Would it not have been better to just call it “Mass Effect: Andromeda’s collectibles pack” or similar? “Mass Effect: Andromeda” will be released on March 21, 2017 for PC, PS 4 and XBOX One.
