Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is a remastered edition of the trilogy currently in development by Bioware. Following its announcement last year in November, the game was given a release window of spring 2021. According to a new leak, it appears that the game will launch on March 12th 2021.
The information about the game’s release comes by way of Singapore game retailer Shopitree. A new tweet by the store’s Twitter account claims that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will be out in March. A similar post by Indonesian store GSSHOP tells the same story.
If the price of the game is to be believed, it seems that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will cost $80 upon launch. This number is in line with the raised prices of most first-party games for next-gen consoles.
Bioware’s 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.
“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,” reads the game’s page on EA’s website. “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.
While we haven’t seen much of the game beyond a few clips, we know that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will feature “super-sharp resolution, faster framerates, and beautiful visual enhancements.”
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PC. The release date of March 12th has not been confirmed by official sources, but it’s highly likely that it’s accurate. Expect an official announcement from EA about the game in the coming weeks.
