Copies of Mass Effect 2 bundled with Black Ops 2, BioWare offers free ME trilogy to affected players

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Disc Mixup

By on November 14, 2012 at 1:01 pm

In what is being described as an “error at the disc manufacturer”, a number of PC Black Ops 2 purchases last night opened their cases and went to install the game only to find that their second disc was, in fact, a different game entirely: Mass Effect 2. Players affected by this can still install the game, but they’ll have to do so by entering their serial number into Steam and downloading it that way.

EA and Activision aren’t exactly friends (in fact, some might describe them as rivals) which makes BioWare’s response all the more delightful. “If the universe thinks that you should be playing Mass Effect right now, who are we to argue?” reads their post.

“In fact, we want to help! The first fifty fans affected by this phenomenon to send us a picture holding their special disc 2 will receive a code for a FREE PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy.” Delightful.

i think my brain just short circuited and shut down temporarily from the sheer mind boggling situation… both the error, and bioware’s response…

What happened with the key? Did the retail version you purchased lacked one entirely?
