Mass Effect has some of the most memorable sci-fi visuals in gaming. Next year, you can soak in the aliens, technology, and environments of the trilogy with a new iteration of an art book showcasing the series’ iconic designs.
The book is an expanded version of The Art of the Mass Effect Universe, which released in 2012. As reported by Eurogamer, preorders for the new hardcover recently opened up. It costs about $40 and is scheduled to release on February 23, 2021.
According to its official listing, this expanded edition adds art from DLC including “The Lair of the Shadow Broker” and “Citadel.”
The last game in the original Mass Effect trilogy (which is what the book covers – not Andromeda) came out in 2012. So why re-release this book now? Hopefully this points to some new Mass Effect-related developments, like a new game or the long-wished-for remasters.
