Mass Effect Legendary Edition (also known as the Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster) has been officially announced during the N7 Day 2020 and slated for the Spring 2021 release window. Hawk-eyed Twitter user Idle Sloth spotted that two separate online retails have listed the remaster’s release date as March 12, 2021, which fits snuggly in the expected window and goes well hand-in-hand with the upcoming release of the expanded Mass Effect Trilogy Artbook coming February 23, 2021.

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. It will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
Our goal was not to remake or reimagine the original games, but to modernize 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.
Following the reveal of Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the team at Bioware pulled an unexpected move and revealed The Next Mass Effect during TGA 2020. There is currently very little known about the project. Stay tuned to find out more!
