Part of the N7 Day celebrations came in the form of BioWare and EA announcing Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, the remastered version of the trilogy. We’ve heard all sorts of rumors and reports over the past year, especially from VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb, who recently pulled the ultimate tease with a blurred image. Well, now we know what that image was: the cover art for the Legendary Edition.

“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,” reads the BioWare blog post. “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.”
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is indeed real and it will provide new and old fans with an opportunity to play through the popular trilogy, but with all sorts of updated goodness. Resolution and framerate have been enhanced and textures, characters, shaders, and effects have all been overhauled. The updated collection includes the original Mass Effect trilogy as well as all single-player DLCs and promotional items.
Even better? A NEW game is confirmed! The blog post continues, saying “Meanwhile here at BioWare, a veteran team has been hard at work envisioning the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe. We are in early stages on the project and can’t say any more just yet, but we’re looking forward to sharing our vision for where we’ll be going next.”
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is currently in development and set to arrive in Spring 2021 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, “with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
