For some time, BioWare was teas­ing some­thing big about the Mass Effect fran­chise and we know what that is. Both EA and BioWare offi­cial­ly announced a Mass Effect tril­o­gy will be released — titled Mass Effect: Leg­endary Edi­tion.

The col­lec­tion bun­dles Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, which orig­i­nal­ly released between 2007 and 2012. Mass Effect start­ed as an Xbox 360 exclu­sive, before mak­ing the jump to the PlaySta­ton 3 years down the road. BioWare’s games have been mul­ti­plat­form since then.

These new ver­sions will not be full remakes, as BioWare did­n’t want to “remake or reimag­ine the orig­i­nal games,” instead opt­ing to improve the game so play­ers can expe­ri­ence them in their “best pos­si­ble form.” Of course, this means bet­ter res­o­lu­tions, frame rates, tex­tures, char­ac­ter mod­els and effects. All sin­gle-play­er DLC and pro­mo­tion­al items will be includ­ed with the Leg­endary Edition. 

The one game miss­ing from the col­lec­tion is Mass Effect: Androm­e­da, which launched back in 2017. 

Mass Effect: Leg­endary Edi­tion is set to launch in spring of 2021 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, as well as on Xbox Series X and PS5. More infor­ma­tion will be avail­able clos­er to the col­lec­tions release date. It’s unclear whether or not this will be released through a sys­tem sim­i­lar to Microsoft­’s Smart Deliv­ery, giv­ing play­ers access to both last-ten and next-gen versions.
