The set will contain over 75 hours of content across all three games available all together in one convenient package for the first time ever! It comes in a deluxe premium foilbox package and contains 5 discs (for Xbox 360 and PC, I imagine the PS3 version is on one or two Blurays) and elusive artwork.
Sadly, this package does not contain what everyone wants… All the DLC! Instead, each version contains a select amount of downloadable content and each version differs from another. Meaning that you will still need to pay upwards of $80 to get all of the DLC available online… don’t be surprised if you see another set released next Christmas that finally contains all the DLC on-disc.
Here is how the DLC breaks down per version:
Mass Effect Trilogy PC Version has the best selection of downloadable content (but even then, it’s not very much in the grand scheme of things). Mass Effect 1 includes “Bring Down the Sky” and “Pinnacle Station” add-ons on-disc. Mass Effect 2 includes its day-one DLC “Cerberus Network” (included with all new copies of the game) and Cerberus unlocks the bonus squadmate Zaeed, plus extra missions and weapons. Mass Effect 3 includes the online pass (also included with new copies).
Mass Effect Trilogy Xbox 360 includes zero Mass Effect 1 DLC. However it includes Cerberus Network for Mass Effect 2 and the Online Pass for Mass Effect 3.
Mass Effect Trilogy PS3 will have it’s DLC decided “soon”.
