Mass Effect trilogy is getting a remaster

It's something that has been in the rumor mill for quite a while but until now there was no official word about a remastered version of the Mass Effect series. At least until now, as BioWare has confirmed that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is currently in the works. Although this new version will not include a full remaster of the original games in Mass Effect Trilogy, it will modernize and improve several aspects of gameplay and graphics to deliver a better experience. BioWare GM Casey Hudson explains it quite well in the official announcement:

"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 will include single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons, armors, and packs – all remastered and optimized for 4k Ultra HD."



Mass Effect is a sci-fi action RPG cult series that has quite a lot of followers and one of BioWare's flagships. The original trilogy follows the adventures of Commander Shepard and his squad deal a variety of enemies that threaten the galaxy. With great storytelling, intense combat, and plenty of personalization options and ways of developing your character, Mass Effect is one of the most popular licenses in the genre, and it has given birth to several spin-offs. Although there is a fourth game, Mass Effect Andromeda, it's considered to be on a different level because it focuses on a new story and a different protagonist.

Although a precise date for its release has not been confirmed yet, we know that Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be available in Spring 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
