Mass Effect is a science-fiction open-world game developed by Bioware. The player assumes the (fully customisable) role of Commander Shepard, a veteran human soldier in a galaxy where Earth made first contact with aliens after discovering a cache of ancient technology on Mars. Upon meeting and interacting with the governing Council, mankind found the need to prove itself to them in order to be recognised as a valued addition to the galaxy. In 2183, Shepard's ship, the SSV Normandy, is sent by the Council to investigate more ancient technology unearthed on the human colony world of Eden Prime, which sets the stage for the storyline.

Initially, Mass Effect was only available on PC and Xbox. However, in October 2012 BioWare announced that Mass Effect would become available on PS3 as part of a trilogy box set and as an individual download from the Playstation Network. No information has been revealed as to whether or not it will include DLC.

All achievements are singleplayer.
