Electronic Arts and Bioware have announced today as a celebration of N7 day. Mass Effect is coming back in a significant collection for both PC and Consoles in 2021, entitled Mass Effect Legendary Edition. The mainline series that lasted from 2007 to 2012 will be ported in their best forms, including all the DLC and promotional items.
While it’s not meant to be considered a remake by any stretch of the imagination, there will be improved textures, 4k resolution, frame rates, and shaders to give the game a visual upgrade while not adding any additional content.
The Mass Effect series began as an Xbox 360 exclusive that eventually went multiplatform, including a port of Mass Effect 3 to the Wii U in late 2012. This is a first for the series will have all three mainline games bundled together in a collection.
And that’s not all for this N7 day. There is very little detail about the project itself. EA made sure to let everyone know that Bioware is working on “The next chapter in the Mass Effect universe,” meaning it’s currently in development, being held by a “veteran team.” While the details as to who exactly will be on this team, it’s safe to say the series may be in good hands, as series creative director Casey Hudson now leads the entire studio.
It may be a long time before we see what this Mass Effect next-gen title will look like, it’s still exciting nonetheless to see the series back in full swing.
