BioWare Finally Announces Mass Effect Remaster Collection

Mass Effect Legendary Edition features all three numbered Mass Effect games with a slew of visual enhancements.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is bringing a polished Mass Effect Trilogy to consoles and PC in spring 2021, Casey Hudson, BioWare's General Manager, announced as part of N7 Day celebrations.

The remaster collection is intended for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, though Hudson said it's compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with "targeted enhancements."

Mass Effect Legendary Edition includes the three numbered Mass Effect games, all single-player DLC from those games, plus promo weapons, armor, and packs.

Hudson said the goal was never remaking the Mass Effect Trilogy. BioWare wanted to "modernize the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form."

What that means for ME Legendary Edition is better framerates, improved visuals, and 4K HD support.

Hudson also said a brand-new Mass Effect game is in the works. It's still early in development, but Hudson said a "veteran team" is working on the new installment.

The Mass Effect Legendary Edition was rated in Korea in October and rumored to be announced that month. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Mass Effect news as it develops.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
