Let it be known that Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 had some really incredible DLC that stood head-to-toe in terms of quality with their base games.
But up until now, they have been very difficult to get a hold of, requiring you to spend the rather confusing BioWare Points currency. None of the special editions or the Mass Effect Trilogy include the DLC. Well, things have changed.
EA has added DLC bundles for both games on their digital distribution platform, Origin. While this is exciting to see, you may feel somewhat less thrilled with the price points. The Mass Effect 2 DLC Bundle is priced at $24.99, while the Mass Effect 3 DLC Bundle is $29.99. Not exactly wallet-friendly for games that came out years ago.
To be fair, there are some savings when you consider how much the DLC was priced at initially. Citadel and Omega, the two DLC packs for Mass Effect 3, were $15 a piece. On top of that, you are also getting From Ashes, Leviathan, all the extra weapons, and the multiplayer add-ons. At the same time, the Mass Effect Trilogy has gone for as cheap as $5 in the past, so it still stings a little.
The good news is, now that it’s available normally on Origin, you can always wait for these bundles to go on sale at some point. They may even appear on EA’s Origin Access subscription service considering all four main Mass Effect games are already available on there.
