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. It's been amazing to see the adventures of Commander Shepard take on new life in super-sharp resolution, faster framerates, and beautiful visual enhancements.
    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. It will be available in Spring 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

    Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is a phenomenal remaster of the original trilogy, with enough changes to not only feel fresh, but with enough quality-of-life improvements to truly call this the definitive way to play the Mass Effect trilogy.

    These games still hold up today, and while the visual improvements do not make the games feel “Next-Gen”, they definitely bring the games up to date and make them more than playable. The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the perfect way for both longtime fans and series newcomers alike to experience one of the finest franchises in gaming history.

    If we’re setting off to new horizons and, eventually, a new Mass Effect, then Mass Effect Legendary Edition serves as a solid collection of this trilogy. This is everything these three games were, and still are to many fans, preserved for time. Just like the capsule Liara makes during Mass Effect 3, this is what can hopefully stand the test of time and carry what this trilogy is—its characters, its worlds, and its stories—forward for ages to come.

    This is BioWare firing — for the most part — on all cylanders and hopefully is the dawn of a new resurgence of the franchise (fingers crossed for EA Play 2021!). Get in, get immersed, explore the galaxy and defend it from a once in a 50,000 year occurence. Then head on over to Andromeda to appreciate that before the next adventures in the Sol system take place.

    Anyone who grew up on bread and science fiction cannot fail to know the saga of Mass Effect and its protagonist, Captain Shepard. In this Mass Effect: Legendary Edition all his deeds and his colorful crew are enclosed, all polished for the occasion.

    Some things about Legendary Edition disappointed or irritated me (no support for the mods, no option to import save files or characters from the original games, no multiplayer in ME3, Denuvo, some bugs and glitches) but as an avid fan who played through the trilogy many times, I enjoyed the remasters immensely.

    While retaining some flaws of the original games, Mass Effect Legendary Edition (and specifically ME1’s remaster and modern take on the action) is worth exploring once again for the fans, and for those who’ve always wondered what was so special about the franchise and never gave it a try.

    The definitive Mass Effect experience. A reminder of what used to be a great video game developer. Let's hope this is a turn for the better.

    Almost perfect remaster of the greatest RPG series ever. I'd pay $60 for remaster of ME1 alone.

    So many words about the work done on ME1, and in the end, Bioware still finds a way to spoil the whole impression with a terrible RussianSo many words about the work done on ME1, and in the end, Bioware still finds a way to spoil the whole impression with a terrible Russian voice acting, which can not be changed to the original.

    Even some solutions for lighting effects that cover half the screen do not spoil the impression of the game as much as the disgusting Russian voice acting of the characters.

    This was not an unknown or undisclosed fact. Terrible quality of Russian voice - over is common information. In this regard, the conclusion is made:

    Bioware, set out to attract a large Russian-speaking audience(with the help of Russian voice acting), not caring about the quality.

    In fact, this is a spit in the face of all Russian-speaking fans of the game.

    I played a little further than the first missions on the Citadel, I can no longer force my brain with this voice-over. I put 0 points because of this.
