Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a compilation of the video games in the Mass Effect trilogy: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3. It is being developed by BioWare with assistance from Abstraction Games and Blind Squirrel Games, and published by Electronic Arts. All three games were remastered, with visual enhancements, technical improvements, and gameplay adjustments. Mass Effect, the first game of the trilogy, has received more extensive upgrades than its counterparts, specifically with regard to combat mechanics, vehicle handling, and loading times.
Development on Legendary Edition commenced in 2019 under the direction of Mac Walters. Although BioWare initially considered other alternatives, they ultimately decided to approach the project as a remaster as opposed to a remake in order to preserve the original trilogy experience. The compilation was announced on November 7, 2020, and is scheduled to be released on May 14, 2021 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition includes the single-player base content and over 40 DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, including promo weapons, armors and packs—all remastered and optimized for 4K Ultra HD and HDR. Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be available on PC via Origin, EA Desktop app and Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with optimized backwards compatibility on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 on Friday, May 14. The game will also be available for EA Play Pro members on May 14.
