Mass Effect 2 Collector’s Edition Announced

Think of it as something like your favorite drug dealer announcing a special high grade premium version of your addiction. Well, okay, no, don’t do that. Because unlike drugs, kids, games are good for you. Especially games by Bioware!

So think of it instead as a lovely announcement by which to end a long week. Today Bioware is officially announcing that Mass Effect 2 will also be available in a special Collector’s, available January 26, 2010, the same day as the standard edition.

What do you get in this Collector’s Edition.  Why, let me peruse the press release here and tell you! Along with the game itself,  you get a 48-page hardcover “Art of Mass Effect 2” book, Issue 1 of the Mass Effect Redemption comic book, and a DVD with behind-the-scenes and making-of videos-all of this housed in a “premium” tin case. Also included are special in-game weapons and armor, available only to those who pony up for this version.

The MSRP for the Mass Effect 2 Collector’s Edition is $69.99 for the Xbox 360 version and $59.99 on PC. PC gamers win again!
