'Mass Effect' Trilogy Remaster Causes Huge Gaming Boners

mass effect remaster legendary edition

In a BioWare blog post on November 7th, the company announced they have been working on a remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy.

The date of the announcement was chosen because November 7th is known as N7, an annual holiday among hardcore Mass Effect fans.

The official title of the remaster is Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, and it will be released in Spring 20201 for the Xbox One, PS4, PC, with enhancements for the Xbox Series X and PS5.

The game will also come with all of the DLC available for all three games, as well as promo weapons, packs, and armor.

It’s important to note that the games will be remastered, not remakes. In the blog post, BioWare specifically said that “for many months now, our team...has been hard at work updating the textures, shaders, models, effects, and technical features of three enormous games."

They didn't intend 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.”

In that sense, these remasters will hopefully be a hit with both diehard fans and new players alike.

As the diehards rejoice, there’s always the slight worry that BioWare changes in-game systems in the name of quality of life updates. Luckily, I don’t see that to be a problem here.

Mass Effect is a beloved franchise, and certainly one of the best of the Xbox 360/PS3 generation, and BioWare is aware of that.

It's also important to note that BioWare themselves are handling the remaster, which means the same devs who worked on those systems originally will have their hands all over the new updated version, leaving most of my worries at bay.

The Mass Effect trilogy marks the peak of BioWare’s achievements. Which is saying a lot considering they are also the creators of the Dragon Age series.

Mass Effect is one of the best gaming series Western developers have created, and at the time of its release, it made a mark on the gaming world and showed that game devs in the west could create RPG to challenge the best of the best.

Seeing the trilogy in its remastered glory is going to be something look forward to next year.
