Some editions of "Mass Effect 2" come with promo codes for unique in-game items. The Collector's Edition and its digital download come with a code for the Collector's Armor and Assault Rifle, as well as a Cerberus Network code. The Cerberus Network gives you access to additional items, as well as a new NPC, Zaeed. Pre-ordered games also came with codes for different items, but these codes are not available with newer versions of the game. If you did not purchase a copy of the Collector's Edition or pre-order the game, you can purchase the Cerberus Network add-on on the Downloadable Content (DLC) page.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

    Enter the Promo Code for the content. Left-click on "Redeem Code."

  3. 3

    Download the file when prompted, if you are playing a PC-version of the game. If you are playing the Xbox version, do not do anything. Restart the game and your new content should be available.

Tips and warnings

  • You need to redeem your code with the account that is linked to your game or Xbox live account. Before redeeming your code, make sure you are logged into the account that is linked to your game. If you've mistakenly created a new account, you need to call EA Support and have someone there manually link the two accounts to gain access to your content. The phone numbers are 650-628-1905 (for the PC) and 650-628-4322 (for consoles).
