The lights are on
During our recent trip to BioWare's Edmonton studio to check out Mass Effect 3, we got to see a lot of cool stuff related to the franchise...including these mock-ups of box art possibilities for the original Mass Effect.
During the filming for our Mass Effect 3 video features, we were allowed to capture some footage of these preliminary tests for the game's cover (which are hanging up in a hallway of the office). It's interesting to see how some of these covers highlight different characters and aspects of the game. My personal favorite is the one above, accompanied by the tagline "In 2007, The Reaping Begins." Of course, that gives away something about the story, so I can see why BioWare steered away from it.
Check out all six in the gallery below.

I actually enjoyed all of those covers. Much more aesthetically interesting than the two covers used.
can we buy these covers please!
I love them all. Which one are they using?
drool* drool* oh man!!! i want them all on my bedroom wall now!!!!
These all look fairly awesome.
Man that one with the Reaper "claw" is epic. That would have been an awesome ME3 cover with the planet being Earth.
the bottom left,and upper right ones look so much bettere than the original cover
