Earlier today, it was revealed that Treyarch had accidentally shipped PC copies Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 with discs of Mass Effect 2 instead of the game they purchased. BioWare, developers behind the Mass Effect trilogy, have responded in an interesting way.
For customers who were affected by the Call of Duty/Mass Effect mix-up, BioWare is offering free copies of the Mass Effect Trilogy set, which was released last week. Here's the full statement from BioWare:
"Rumor has it that about a thousand customers who purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops II for PC today were also treated to a surprise copy of Mass Effect 2. If you were one of the affected, chances are you thought it was a mistake, but we prefer to think that it was an omen, and when the universe talks, you should listen.
If the universe thinks that you should be playing Mass Effect right now, who are we to argue? 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."
If you were affected, here's how to get your free game.
