Today was a bad day for quite a few Call of Duty: Black Ops II owners. When they grabbed their physical copies of the Windows game for $59.99, they didn’t get the full game. Many people discovered halfway through the installation process that they happened to get half of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and half of Mass Effect 2. They didn’t have all of one game and they didn’t have a product key for the other. Oddly enough, BioWare is the company stepping up to make things better and not Treyarch or Activision.
The promotion is a call to arms for wronged Call of Duty: Black Ops II players. BioWare wants pictures of them holding their flawed disc two with Mass Effect 2 on it. Take a picture of yourself with the disc and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org . The first 50 people to send it in will get a Windows copy of the Mass Effect Trilogy. The call for photos just came out, so there’s still a chance to get three games for free.
I’m surprised that BioWare stepped up to do something like this, but not too surprised. It seems like a good promotional opportunity. The Mass Effect Trilogy did just come out for Windows on November 6, 2012. Not to mention it will get those 50 people using Origin to redeem their free games!
And yes, I did just reuse the same image from the Call of Duty: Black Ops II/Mass Effect 2 news story I ran earlier today. I’m proud of my photoshopping endeavor and wanted to use it again. So there.
