N7 Day is the Perfect Time to Buy the Mass Effect Trilogy
November 7. An ordinary date, right? Nope. For those who don’t know, today is N7 day, which is the Mass Effect holiday. For those who don’t know what Mass Effect is, or have never played the game, it’s time to make a drastic change.
Technically, Mass Effect is a trilogy of video games, action RPG shooters to be exact, which became a massive success for BioWare, resulting in an expansion to other mediums: Novels, comic books, films, board games, action figures and more.
But obviously, Mass Effect isn’t just the merchandise. It’s an incredibly vast, rich, almost endless universe with alien races, complex politics and plenty of action you, the protagonist, get to experience while playing the game. It also featured plot-based-on decision system, with different consequences to certain decisions your characters makes over the course of the games.
The first game was released on November 2007, hence the N7 celebration date. The sequel was released on January 26, 2010 and the third game was released on March 6, 2012. In 2017, Mass Effect: Andromeda is scheduled to be released, one of the most anticipated games next year. It’ll take place many years after the events of the original Mass Effect trilogy, and explore the Andromeda Galaxy. The original trilogy is set within the Milky Way galaxy, beginning in the year 2183.
For those who have already played and own the original trilogy, it’s to move forward and pre-order Mass Effect: Andromeda on the Xbox One.
For those who haven’t played the game, all 3 games of the original Mass Effect trilogy are available on the Xbox 360 for $29.16, but you can obviously play it on the PC and the PlayStation 3. You can also get each game individually, starting with the 2007 Mass Effect and start your way from there. I find it hard to believe you won’t find yourself infatuated with the world and characters. It’s one of those games that’s impossible to stop playing.
