It’s finally here!
After years of speculation and fan anticipation, Bioware and EA are finally bringing the Mass Effect trilogy to current/next gen consoles in a modern update of the franchise.
Bioware’s Casey Hudson had the following to say, via Eurogame:
“For many months now, our team at BioWare has been hard at work updating the textures, shaders, models, effects, and technical features of three enormous games… Our goal was not to remake or reimagine the original games, but to modernise the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form.”
“It’s been amazing to see the adventures of Commander Shepard take on new life in super-sharp resolution, faster framerates, and beautiful visual enhancements. As game developers, we always hope that our games will transcend their original platforms. Having the opportunity to remaster the trilogy means that the fruits of a decade of our work will live on, and will be experienced better and clearer than ever before.”
Mass Effect Legendary Edition includes single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons, armours, and packs which will all be remastered and optimised for 4k Ultra HD.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is set to release in Spring 2021, and will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC and forward compatible with enhancements for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
