List of Mass Effect media

Mass Effect is a science fiction media franchise developed by the Canadian company BioWare, composed of multi-platform video games and associated media. The core of the franchise is an eponymous trilogy of action role-playing third-person shooter video games, which follow Commander Shepard’s mission to save the galaxy from a race of mechanical beings known as the Reapers. The Mass Effect franchise also includes three mobile games, each with a different gameplay style; four novels, written by Drew Karpyshyn and William C. Dietz; three art books; ten comic book series or mini-comics and their anthologies; an animated film; and eleven soundtrack albums or singles. A fourth main series game, Mass Effect: Andromeda, is currently in development and planned for release in 2017, along with an associated novelization by N. K. Jemisin, an art book, and a coloring book.
The video games have had high sales, with the last major game, Mass Effect 3, shipping over 3.5 million copies in its first week of release.[1] Reception of other media in the franchise has been mixed: the comics, such as Mass Effect: Redemption, have been praised for their writing, and novels such as Mass Effect: Revelation have been recommended to fans of the games; but Mass Effect: Deception was derided as inconsistent with the main trilogy.[2][3][4] The first game of the series was published in 2007, while the latest was published in 2012 and the latest piece of media is an art book published in 2015.
