Bob Mackey

It’s not just you—the world of video game collector’s editions can be confusing. In an age where some of these special variants don’t even come with the game itself, you absolutely need to stay informed as a consumer. That said, if you’re excited about Mass Effect Andromeda—launching March 21—and want to know what extra goodies you can get at a premium price, read on for a full breakdown of its various collector’s editions.

If you’d prefer to not have a lot of extra physical stuff with your special editions—and don’t want to spend too much—this Deluxe edition stands as your best bet. All the extras in this edition come in the form of digital goodies, meaning you won’t be adding extra clutter to your existing collection of game-related tchotchkes. Mass Effect Andromeda Deluxe will cost you $70.00, and comes with the following:

  • Mass Effect Andromeda
  • Pathfinder casual outfit
  • Scavenger armor
  • Pathfinder Elite weapon set (4)
  • Pet Pyjak (monkey)
  • Digital soundtrack
  • Multiplayer Deluxe Launch Pack – $5 value
  • Total value of $20 in additional content delivered via Code in Box

Mass Effect Andromeda NOMAD ND1 Model Collector’s Edition

As indicated by the title, the main draw of this collector’s edition is a replica of the NOMAD ND1 vehicle from Mass Effect Andromeda. This edition costs $100.00, $160.00 if you want the standard edition of the game included, and $170.00 if you want Mass Effect Andromeda Deluxe included. (So if you’re interested, make sure you’re ordering the correct edition!) Based on the description from BioWare’s product page, the NOMAD ND1 model offers the following features:

  • Scale: 1:18
  • Diecast metal body
  • Fully detailed interior and illuminated control panel
  • Powered by 3 AA batteries (not included)

Mass Effect Andromeda Remote Control Nomad ND1 Model Collector’s Edition

If you want the biggest, priciest Mass Effect Andromeda special edition, this is the one for you. Like the previously mentioned special edition, this one comes with a replica of the NOMAD ND1, but in a more souped-up form. $200.00 will net you the remote control NOMAD ND1 on its own, $260.00 will get you the replica and the standard edition of the game, while $270.00 buys the remote control NOMAD ND1 along with Mass Effect Andromeda Deluxe. According to the description from BioWare’s product page, the remote control NOMAD ND1 offers the following features:
