"Mass Effect: Legendary Edition" Announced, New Game in Development
Rumors have been surfacing for months that BioWare was planning a remaster of their original Mass Effect trilogy of games. Now on BioWare's "N7 Day" it's officially been confirmed, titled Mass Effect: Legendary Edition with a release set early in 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Not only will the games be remastered to 4K resolution, but it will also include all the DLC's that have ever come with each of the games. You can check out the official announcement from the franchise's Twitter page which comes with a brief teaser:
In addition, following the critically mixed fourth installment, Mass Effect: Andromeda, BioWare has also announced a new game in the series that will bring in veterans as part of the development crew although it's still in early stages. Still, BioWare general manager Casey Hudson had this to say on the new game:
“For me personally, Mass Effect represents years of work and countless special memories, so every year I feel incredibly fortunate to celebrate N7 Day with players around the world. Thank you so much for supporting us over the years. I can’t wait to continue our adventure together – revisiting our favorite memories in the Mass Effect universe, and creating brand new ones.”
Hopefully, the old trilogy and the new upcoming game will help to reinvigorate a once acclaimed franchise that, at one point, seemed too big to fail. The series is based on the idea of making a choice. Hopefully, this time, BioWare will make the right one this time. Stay tuned!
