Remastered Mass Effect Trilogy and New Mass Effect Announced

The BioWare Blog celebrates N7 Day with the expected announcement of the very long rumored remastered edition of the Mass Effect trilogy. BioWare GM Casey Hudson says this Mass Effect Legendary Edition is expected in spring 2021 for PC and consoles. This will include all the single-player content of the first three Mass Effect games along with all DLC and special packs, remastered and optimized for 4K. He also confirms another rumor, saying a "veteran" team is in the early stages of creating a new installment in the space opera series. Here are all the details:
It’s tough keeping a big secret (and we really struggled to keep this one a surprise) but now it’s official: today we announced the Mass Effect Legendary Edition! We’ve heard (for years!) your requests for a Mass Effect remaster, so we’re super happy to finally reveal that we’ve been working on a remastered edition of the Mass Effect trilogy.

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.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition will include single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons, armors, and packs – all remastered and optimized for 4k Ultra HD. It will be available in Spring 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. More information to come in the new year!

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.

For me personally, Mass Effect represents years of work and countless special memories, so every year I feel incredibly fortunate to celebrate N7 Day with players around the world. Thank you so much for supporting us over the years. I can’t wait to continue our adventure together – revisiting our favorite memories in the Mass Effect universe, and creating brand new ones!

Remastered or not, I am not one to go back and play games I've already completed. There are so many games that I want to play out there and I don't have enough time to play half of them. That being said, the Mass Effect trilogy is one of my favorites gaming series of all time and I am glad that it can be experienced by newcomers.

I have always wanted to dive into the Mass Effect games, and this will be my first opportunity -- just wasn't good timing with the others. I'm super excited!

Here is something real imo, one issue with remasters is you lose all the mods and imo this series really benefits from mods. There is a lot of running back and forth and the mods that speed that up to me are a godsend. There are better quality graphic mods, so if this is all it brings, sometimes we even find out the mods do a better job. Now for consoles you take it, but being a PC site I would at this time honestly really question if the Remasters are better for today's audience then mods that exist with the current versions. For me I wouldn't play without mods now, they just add gameplay QoL enhancements.
