Mass Effect: Legendary Edition trilogy set to release for PS4, XB1, and PC in Spring 2021; new Mass Effect title in development

Just in time for this year's N7 day - an annual community celebration of the Mass Effect franchise which takes place on November 7 - EA and BioWare have finally revealed the long-rumored Mass Effect: Legendary Edition trilogy remaster. It is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2021.

The Legendary Edition, which includes Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, is also planned for compatibility with targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.


Murmurs surrounding this remaster trilogy have been circling around for quite a while now, with the 'Legendary Edition' subtitle formally name-dropped by the Korean ratings board last month. The Mass Effect voice cast announcing a reunion event days beforehand added fuel to the long-going speculation as well. 

This new trilogy release will include all of the single-player DLC and promotional items for each of the three games. Being a remaster, things like textures, models, and effects will all be touched up, performing at better resolutions and framerates. 


Additionally, EA and BioWare have confirmed that an all-new Mass Effect title is in development at the studio, something that was reported on around one year ago, headed by a veteran team. Studio boss Casey Hudson had stated intentions to return to the franchise back in 2018, and it looks like those intentions are starting to surface. We'll assuredly have to wait a bit to get more details on what this new entry will entail.
