Seemingly for no reason at all, BioWare and Dark Horse are releasing an expanded edition of The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy. The book releases February 23, 2021 for and is available to pre-order now at Amazon for $40.
According to the listing, the book will have a bunch of new concept art, particularly for each game’s DLC. It will also feature new commentary from developers. All told, The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition appears to have roughly 90 pages of new content, some of which has never been seen before.
The original book it expands upon was actually titled The Art of the Mass Effect Universe and released back in 2012, though finding a physical edition is costly nowadays. So for big Mass Effect fans who missed out the first time around, now’s your chance to lock in your pre-order ahead of its release.
As always, you’ll get the lowest price offered between now and release thanks to Amazon’s pre-order price guarantee. Since art books tend to receive discounts all the time, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to save at least a few bucks off the list price.
While any new Mass Effect content is exciting, fans have been clamoring for a Mass Effect Trilogy remaster for a while now. EA has never commented on a potential remaster, but the studio has expressed interest in remastering fan-favorite games. Mass Effect is probably at the top of the list for many fans, and it’s certainly interesting that an expanded version of the trilogy’s art book is on the horizon. For now, at least fans will get to gaze at some new Mass Effect Trilogy art.
