Mass Effect Legendary Edition’s Release Date Has Been Revealed

The collection is now available for pre-order and is priced at $59.99.

New Shepard Customizations - With improved hair, makeup, eye color and skin tones you can create your Shepard in a unified character creator with all options available across the full trilogy, or choose to play as the iconic Femshep from Mass Efect 3 now available in all titles.

Barring a dodgy ending and the first game maybe not holding up as well as you remember it to, Mass Effect still makes for one heck of a fantastic trilogy of games. All games feature improved 4K graphics with HDR support.

While all single-player content will be included in its entirety, multiplayer won't feature for the Legendary Edition of Mass Effect, as it was a task nearly as big as overhauling the whole of the first Mass Effect. Mass Effect Legendary Edition will feature the full single player campaigns of the original games as well as all of the original DLC, be it story content, weapons and more.


Mass Effect Legendary Edition will offer a smooth 60fps experience on the PS5, Xbox Series S/X, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Xbox One X, BioWare revealed, with next-gen consoles also benefiting from reduced load times. Mass Effect also includes updated interfaces and UI as well as a variety of quality-of-life improvements. Eden Prime, for example, now has much more robust foliage, and the light of the sun is now ahead of you in the level, so that you'll see more dramatic lighting as you progress toward the end.

"It's been an incredible journey revisiting the stories, characters and iconic moments of the Mass Effect trilogy, enhancing the experience for modern platforms while staying true to the spirit of the original", Mass Effect Legendary Edition project director and the original trilogy's lead writer Mac Walters said in a prepared statement.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is out May 14 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
