The thing we all knew would happen on N7 Day 2020 happened. BioWare took to its blog to confirm Mass Effect Legendary Edition. The collection of remastered games, which appeared via leaks on a retail site and in rumors, will appear in Spring 2021. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions will appear, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X “targeted enhancements” planned.
As people expected, this is a full remaster collection. Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 will be there. So will all of the DLC, including any promotional items. Everything will have 4K Ultra HD support. There will also be higher framerates than before.

At the end of the post, BioWare’s Casey Hudson confirmed the developer is working on a new entry in the series. All he noted is the new Mass Effect game is “in early stages on the project.”
Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in Spring 2021. The more basic Mass Effect Trilogy, which also includes all three games, is immediately available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. For people looking for other N7 Day activities, cast members from the original trilogy and developers have an event planned for people to watch.
