2020 has been the year of the remaster. We got a round of remasters ranging from the Mafia series, Crysis, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Saints Row the Third, Age of Empires 3, and so on. With new projects being delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, publishers are transitioning to re-releasing existing titles with a few changes to the formula (including graphical and gameplay changes). The year will be ending with a remaster of one of the most anticipated titles of 2012 – something which most RPG lovers can relate to. Yes, a remaster of the Mass Effect trilogy is actually a thing.
BioWare has officially announced that they are working on fundamental changes to all three games of the Mass Effect series. The remaster comes with updates to the textures, shaders, models, effects and technical features of all three games – something which the BioWare team has been working very hard on. The remaster is officially termed Mass Effect Legendary Edition – which includes all singleplayer base content and DLC from the trilogy besides promos, weapons, armours and packs – all remastered and optimized for 4K.
The project is currently in the early stages of its process, and more details will be revealed closer to release. Mass Effect Legendary Edition launches for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Spring 2021. The game will come with forwarding compatibility and targeted enhancements for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
