Mass Effect: Legendary Edition officially announced

As expected, it's a very big N7 Day, as Electronic Arts and BioWare have confirmed that a Mass Effect trilogy remaster, called Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, is in the works.

The new versions will not be full remakes: BioWare said it aims to "modernize the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form."

"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," BioWare GM Casey Hudson wrote.

"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."

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is expected to be out in spring 2021. More information will be revealed next year.

BioWare also said that a new Mass Effect is in development, but had no specifics to share.



The remaster news is no surprise. The rumor machine began turning in May, when Electronic Arts said that it would release, among other things, "an additional EA HD title" sometime prior to the end of March 2021, which VentureBeat reported would be the Mass Effect Trilogy. The claim was unverified, but the site was confident enough to state it as a fact.

Then in October, a rating for something called the Mass Effect Legendary Edition popped up on South Korea's Game Rating and Administration Committee. That was followed earlier this week by tweets from Commander Shepard voice actors Jennifer Hale and Mark Meer, who said that a big reunion of Mass Effect voice actors—all from the original trilogy—would take place on November 7, for "a very special panel" to celebrate N7 Day.

And then during this week's Q2 2021 financial report, Electronic Arts reaffirmed its plan to "announce the launch dates of additional FY21 title releases, including an EA Originals title and a remastered title."

If you want to see the cast reunion, it starts at 11 am Pacific below:

So the gaming industry is following Hollywood, remasters-remakes-sequels... bla bla

Not a original AAA game on the horizons. Luckily  there is a whole indie games scene with a lot of excellent games to choose from.
