Last Chance To Preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition: Retailer-Exclusive Bonuses And More
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is out this Friday, and there's still time to preorder for some sweet retailer-exclusive bonuses.
After years of rumors and fans clamoring for it, a remastered edition of the Mass Effect Trilogy is finally about to release. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition launches this Friday, May 14, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will also be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X due to backwards compatibility. Time is running out to preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and get its preorder bonuses, so considering securing your copy today if you know it's a day-one purchase for you.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition includes all three games in the core series as well as over 40 pieces of DLC, including special weapons and armor packs, campaign expansions, and more. The games will be playable in 4K with HDR and feature improved character models, high-resolution textures, and other visual enhancements. See our breakdown of the ways Mass Effect: Legendary Edition changes the original trilogy for more details on what to expect. Plus, our Mass Effect review-in-progress is live now--be sure to check it out for associate editor Jordan Ramée's early impressions.
Whether you're a longtime Mass Effect fan or interested in checking out the beloved sci-fi RPG series for the first time, you can catch up on the available preorder bonuses and options for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition below.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition preorder bonuses
If you preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition at Best Buy, you'll receive a steelbook case that you can store your game disc in. This appears to be a different steelbook than the one that's included in the Legendary Cache Bundle.
Preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition at GameStop, and you'll get this exclusive poster to hang on your wall. If you order online, you'll need to bring your order confirmation page to your local store to receive the bonus; the listing suggests calling ahead of time to confirm availability.

Preorder Mass Effect Legendary Cache Bundle
$150 | SOLD OUT
This bundle does not include a copy of the game but rather a set of collectibles to celebrate Mass Effect: Legendary Edition's release. Notably, the bundle gets you a fully wearable N7 helmet, which features carbon fiber textures and LED lights that illuminate the visor and other accents. Here's everything the cache bundle comes with:
- Wearable N7 helmet
- Steelbook case
- Canvas art print
- N7 acceptance letter
- Morality spinner pin
If you preorder the Mass Effect Legendary Cache Bundle directly from BioWare, you'll also receive an exclusive canvas art print (so you'll get two art prints instead of just the one).
The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition
$32 (was $40)
Longtime fans of Mass Effect will want to get their hands on The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition, which released on February 23, a few months ahead of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. Published by Dark Horse Books, the expanded art book includes never-before-seen works of art and new material from the DLC for all three games, including "Lair of the Shadow Broker" from Mass Effect 2 and "Citadel" from Mass Effect 3. The hardcover book has over 260 pages of concept art, commentary, and more, making it a great collectible for hardcore Mass Effect fans.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will surely help fans endure the wait for the next mainline Mass Effect game. Announced during The Game Awards 2020 with a brief teaser trailer, the new entry in the series doesn't have a title just yet. No release window has been revealed, but BioWare is also working on Anthem and Dragon Age 4, so it's unlikely it'll release anytime soon.
