Compilation of the first three games in the franchise to be released in 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC
The franchise Mass Effect is currently “frozen” by Electronic Arts, with Mass Effect: Andromeda, released in 2017, being the last game in the series, which ended up somewhat disliking its community. However, it seems that the franchise is about to return to the spotlight, with the release of a compilation.
As found by the website Gematsuand GRAC (Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea), the body responsible for the indicative classification of games that are marketed in the South Korea, recently added to its database the unannounced “Mass Effect Legendary Edition”.
Registered in September, the supposed collection of games should feature the first three titles of the franchise, bringing together Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 in their remastered versions. Rumors about the remastering of the first titles in the Mass Effect saga are nothing new, where news related to the collection has been appearing since the beginning of this year.
Compilation should hit the market in 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC – with the Switch out
During the month of May, in its fiscal report, EA Games included in its future titles a game called as “HD Game”, which is expected to launch until the end of March 2021. Soon after the repercussion of this mysterious game, the journalist Jeff Grubb, from the Venture Beat website, confirmed that this remastering listed by the company was for games in the BioWare franchise.

The collection, according to Jeff, was expected to be released during the month of October. However, mainly because of the current global situation brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the developer was forced to change plans and postpone the launch of the remastering until the beginning of 2021.
Finally, unlike the other two remasters released by EA – Burnout Paradise and, more recently, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, it is pointed out that Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be released only for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, without a Nintendo Switch version. The collection should include all additional content released for the three titles, however, leaving out the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer mode.
