Mass Effect: Genesis comic now on PC

Friday, 27th May 2011 04:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The Mass Effect: Genesis digital comic first released with the PlayStation 3 edition of Mass Effect 2 is now available for PC.

The comic allows players to make major decisions from the first Mass Effect game to create an appropriate save file for Mass Effect 2. It was created in collaboration with Dark Horse, and allows for a handful of key decisions to deviate from the “canonical” course.

Genesis is available via the Mass Effect DLC page on BioWare’s site. It was also recently released for Xbox 360.

As the first game is avilable on both PC and X360, but not PS3, the former two versions come at a premium of 320 BioWare or MS Points respectively, while PS3 owners can nab it for free from the PSN.

Thanks, Blue’s News.

    so how exactly does this comic work? do I need to have any of the games installed or do I run it from a browser?

    Soooooo it’s a summary of the first game and they want to charge for it? Thank god you can just Google it and watch it on youtube. You’d think they would want as many people as possible to get it so they might pick up the second/third game in the series, this mad dash to sell anything and everything via DLC is a bit sickening.

    @3, it’s a bit more than a summary, it lets you make the critical choices in ME1 and generate a save file compatible with ME2 so you get the benefit of being able to continue the story in ME2 as if you had played ME1.

    Whether or not it’s worth what they’re asking is up to people who didn’t get ME1.
