PC Pack Code Issues Edit
Originally on the PC version of Mass Effect, a code was provided for the purchaser to obtain a copy of Bring Down the Sky for free.
For players who now wish to obtain this DLC, go to EA's help page to download the DLC installer. A code is no longer required to authorize the installer. Those who receive a "You have reached the activation limit." message will need to use the Contact Us feature on the EA site to unlock it.
Bring Down the Sky was originally released for 400 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360 and 400 BioWare Points on PC. The Xbox 360 price was eventually reduced to US$1 (80 Microsoft Points before Microsoft switched to Local Currency), and the pack is also included for free with the Platinum Hits Edition of Mass Effect for Xbox 360. In addition, the pack is currently available for free on the PC version, and it is included in the PC and PlayStation 3 editions of Mass Effect Trilogy.
