To celebrate N7 Day, Bioware has officially announced Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. The collection brings all three games together for a new remaster!
Bioware’s worst kept secret has formally been unveiled. After a whole lot of rumors, and potential reveals set for various times throughout the year, N7 Day (the annual celebration of the Mass Effect franchise) brings blessed confirmation.
This is the remaster I’ve been dying to see. The trilogy is among my all time favorite gaming series, bringing excellent storytelling and movie-esque action. The third game was even my choice for Game of the Decade! As such, I’m super excited to finally see it happen and get the chance to dive back in.

For many months now, our team at BioWare has been hard at work updating the textures, shaders, models, effects, and technical features of three enormous games. 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. 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.
Still no firm release date, but the collection is expected to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PCs in Spring 2021 (hopefully EARLY Spring).
