Mass Effect Trilogy Edition Won’t Feature FemShep Cover Art
FemShep will be absent from the box covers.
The revelation that the so-called Trilogy Edition of Mass Effect will not be available with Female Shepard (or FemShep) cover art was met with a raft of fan anger over Twitter and on the official BioWare forums. The decision is a reversal of BioWare’s Mass Effect 3 release earlier this year, which contained a reversible jacket placing the female version of Shepard on its cover.
In response to the backlash, the official Mass Effect Twitter account tweeted that the studio is planning “a little something special” for FemShep, which will hopefully make up for her absence on the box cover.
There’s no word on what they intend for this to be, but it’ll likely arrive in the form of some printed card and not something in-game, though we wouldn’t rule out the possibility that BioWare may implement the official FemShep model into Mass Effect 1 and 2.
The Mass Effect Trilogy Edition is set to contain all three games and very potentially their accompanying DLCs, although neither EA nor BioWare have yet to confirm whether they plan to include everything in the bundle. The pack will be released on “N7 Day” or November 7 this year.
