Mass Effect is back on the gaming stage – right! On the occasion of N7 Day, BioWare put its nails in a blog entry and officially confirmed that a new part within the sci-fi Mass Effect is finally in the works. The news was personally confirmed by studio manager Casey Hudson.
The next Mass Effect is already being worked on by “a team of veterans” at BioWare. The next chapter within the universe is currently “in an early phase”, which is why he is currently “unable to say more”. However, they look forward to sharing the studio’s vision for the franchise with the community in the future.
In the context of the message, a new artwork (see above) was published that seems to be related to the new game. One can only hope that this time the project succeeds better than last Mass Effect: Andromeda in 2017.
But that’s not all, because the game industry’s worst kept secret in recent months has now also been officially confirmed: The first three parts of the series, which have been celebrated by critics and the community, are celebrating their comeback as part of a remaster trilogy. The Mass Effect Trilogy had previously been leaked on the net several times.
Under the name Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, Mass Effect (2007), Mass Effect 2 (2010) and Mass Effect 3 (2012) appear in an optimized form – but not Mass Effect: Andromeda. In addition to the single player and all DLC content, the new edition also includes all promo weapons, armor and packs. The upgrade consists primarily in an optimization for 4K image
The Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will be released in spring 2021 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but will also be compatible with the new PS5 and Xbox Series X / S platforms.
