'Mass Effect: Andromeda' Pre-Order: Collector's Editions Announced, Game Not Included

The pre-order bonuses for Mass Effect: Andromeda are here BioWare

Looking to pre-order one of the fancy versions of Mass Effect: Andromeda? Make sure it has a copy of the game before you buy, as some of the collector’s editions of Andromeda will not actually include a copy of the game.

There are a few different versions of Mass Effect: Andromeda available for pre-order right now. Pre-ordering any of them will earn you some exclusive rewards, but the more special the edition you get, the more rewards you will earn. That being said, the physical Deluxe Edition and the physical Super Deluxe Edition both come with cool Nomad vehicles, but no Mass Effect game discs.

We’ve seen special editions come without copies of games before, but that doesn’t mean it’s ok. Yes, the money you spend on a collector’s edition goes almost entirely to the extras bundled in, but still. Just throw in a download code or something. Oh well, just be wary of what you’re actually getting when making a Mass Effect: Andromeda purchase.

If you’re curious for what else you can get with pre-ordering, the pre-order bonuses are below, broken up by which version you buy. All digital versions come with a copy of the game, whereas only standard and Deluxe physical copies will be released.
