If you haven’t already preemptively gotten your name down for a copy of the Collector’s Edition of Mass Effect 3, it seems you’re out of luck. According to BioWare’s community manager Chris Priestly, the company simply can not have any more physical copies ready for the game’s release. As stated on the BioWare forums, “The items included in the physical edition cannot be made in time for launch.”
“This is why, back in November, I started warning people that the CE would run out,” Priestly added. Though you might not be getting your hands on a physical copy of the collector’s edition, there’s still the option to obtain the digital version for the PC. The Digital Deluxe Versionis priced at $79.99 on Origin and contains a digital art book, limited edition comic, 4×6 Lithographic print, in-game N7 hoodie, Mechdog companion, and the bonus shotgun and assault rifle included in the Arsenal Pack.
Mass Effect 3 will launch for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC on March 6th. A demo will be available on next Tuesday, February 14th.
