After months of rumors, BioWare announced they are working on Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a remastered version of the Mass Effect Trilogy.

“For many months now, our team at BioWare has been hard at work updating the textures, shaders, models, effects, and technical features of three enormous games,” BioWare VP Casey Hudson said in an official blog post.

The new games won’t be a full remake, but a “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,” Hudson continued. “As game developers, we always hope that our games will transcend their original platforms. Having the opportunity to remaster the trilogy means that the fruits of a decade of our work will live on, and will be experienced better and clearer than ever before.”

According to the same post, Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be optimized for 4K Ultra HD and will feature targeted enhancements for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. It will include all the single-player content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, plus the promo weapons, armors, and packs.
