The Mass Effect 3 release date is March 6 and we’re counting down the number of days left to put in your Mass Effect 3 pre-order for extra, exclusive game content. But where should you put in your Mass Effect 3 game order? Where will you get the best pre-order bonus? Choose your deal now because time is running out!
A Mass Effect 3 pre-order with Amazon will get the M55 Argus assault rifle and $10 promotional credit towards the purchase of future items shipped and sold by Amazon – the code for that $10 will arrive via e-mail within two days of the Mass Effect 3 release date.
A Mass Effect 3 pre-order from Best Buy will get you the M55 Argus rifle as well as a $10 or $20 gift card if you are a Reward Zone Gamers Club member.
Mass Effect 3 pre-orders with GameStop will get you the exclusive N7 Valkyrie rifle, N7 Defender armor and the M55 Argus assault rifle. You can also pick up your Mass Effect 3 pre-order from GameStop at a midnight release near you. GameStops at 1450 Ala Moana Blvd., 1620 N. School St., 888 Kapahulu Ave., 4211 Waialae Ave. and 930 Valkenburgh St. in Honolulu, Hawaii will all be participating in the midnight release. Be among the first to start playing.
Need more stores doing the midnight release? Mass Effect 3 midnight release has a lot more retailers participating than just those listed above; check them out here.
A Mass Effect 3 pre-order bought through EA’s origin will get you an AT12 Raider shotgun as well as the M55 Argus assault rifle (clearly they have a backlog of these guns in the Mass Effect universe).
For my money, I’ll be waiting outside GameStop for my Mass Effect 3 release because you can never have too much armor. But you may be noticing that the exclusive content is looking a little thin – make that a lot thin.
Well, it’s not just your imagination. Mass Effect 2 offered the Cerberus Network code with new character Zaeed Massani as a reward to those who purchased the game new, protecting themselves against lost income from second-hand purchases. This time around, you can only access the new squadmate – a protheon – and his mission by purchasing the Mass Effect 3 Collector’s Edition or Mass Effect 3 Digital Deluxe Edition.
For those of us spending hard earned money on a Mass Effect 3 pre-order and just getting a few guns and maybe some armor as our pat on the back, we can shell out an additional $10 for this additional squadmate on the exact same day the game is released.
