Mass Effect Legendary Edition Free

The Illusive Man smokes a cigarette while standing in front of a dying sun in Mass Effect Legendary Edition.


Legendary Mass Effect Edition is free this week for members of Amazon’s Prime Gaming service. It is one of six games released by the e-commerce giant:who has struggleddespite the fact that billions have been put into various projects, to produce a critically acclaimed game in itself – for Prime Day, the annual ritual to bleed dry on the altar of capitalism. They join about two dozen other games that Amazon released last month as a promotion for Prime Day.

Every year, Amazon hosts a series of promotions called Prime Day, designed to encourage you to spend money on products you wouldn’t have looked at twice otherwise. In other words, as our friends at life hacker RemarkUnless you approach the process thoughtfully and methodically, Prime Day shopping won’t actually save you money in the long run. But between the lines, there’s the occasional solid deal, especially if it comes with a $0 price tag. (Of the offers to which a price is attached, our colleagues at The stock will monitor to see what your time is really worth.)

Legendary Mass Effect Edition, a bundled 4K re-release of BioWare’s historical trilogy of space RPGs, is the big one. Amazon also releases the racing games Grid Legends and Need for speed heatnext to three Star Wars games: the awesome squad shooter Republic Commandand two mentions of the Jedi Knight series of action games, Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy† Amazon refers to to claim these games as “freeloading” (how fun). You can pick them up tomorrow and Wednesday.

In addition to roaming space operas and two extraordinarily competent racing games, Amazon is also giving away a handful of under-the-radar titles, including the excellent co-op puzzler Death Squared and two entries from the classic fighting series king of fighters† They are currently available – as of mid-June – and will remain available through Wednesday. Here’s the full list:

  • 8Doors: Arum’s Afterlife Adventure
  • Adding Adventures

  • Clouds & Sheep 2
  • Death Squared
  • Fatal Fury Special
  • Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams

The upside to all this is that you have to sign up for Prime Gaming, which costs $15 a month and includes all the things, like the streaming service and the “free” shipping, that you get with Amazon Prime† (You get Prime Gaming access at no extra cost with a standard Prime subscription; they’re…basically the same.) Amazon says games are yours to keep “forever.” Here I point out that you can register for free for a trial period of 30 days.
