The lights are on
Perhaps taking a cue from the recent success of Activision's Skylanders, EA will release new Mass Effect action figures later this year that include downloadable content for Mass Effect 3.
According to new listing on BigBadToyStore.com, each figure contains different in-game content exclusive to North America. Below is the product description:
Bonus Downloadable Game Content: Each figure includes an in-pack card giving you access to downloadable in-game bonus content. Each figure contains different in-game content, exclusive to North American released product. Collect all 8 for the full experience!
The BioWare store notes, however, that the content is "slightly randomized during the registration and could include powerful new weapons and new characters. The pack could also include character boosters, weapon modifications, and weapon upgrades to make your multi-player squad stronger. "
The listing also says the content is available for PC and Xbox 360 only.
We've contacted EA for additional comment.
