EA and BioWare have unveiled a trailer for their upcoming Mass Effect: Legendary Edition release. Releasing on May 14th, the title will include all three of the original Mass Effect games, along with all of the available DLC across the three titles. More from BioWare:
One person is all that stands between humanity and the greatest threat it’s ever faced. Relive the legend of Commander Shepard in the highly acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy with the Mass Effect™ Legendary Edition. Includes single-player base content and over 40 DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 games, including promo weapons, armors, and packs – remastered and optimized for 4K Ultra HD.
Experience an amazingly rich and detailed universe where your decisions have profound consequences on the action and the outcome.
RELIVE THE CINEMATIC SAGA: Heart-pounding action meets gripping interactive storytelling where you decide how your unique story unfolds.
Three Games – One Launcher: Play through the single-player base content and over 40 DLC from all three games, including promo weapons, armors, and packs.
Remastered for a New Generation: Experience the trilogy in 4K Ultra HD with enhanced performance, visuals, and graphics, all available in HDR.
Visual Improvements on All Three Games: Updates include enhanced models, shaders, FX, lighting, and depth of field.
EXPERIENCE THE LEGEND OF SHEPARD: Create and customize your own character, from appearance and skills to a personalized arsenal then lead your elite recon squad across a galaxy in turmoil.
New Shepard Customizations: With improved hair, makeup, eye color and skin tones you can create your Shepard in a unified character creator with all options available across the full trilogy, or choose to play as the iconic Femshep from Mass Effect 3 now available in all titles.
Gameplay Enhancements for the First Mass Effect™ Game: Enjoy improved aiming and weapons balance, SFX, input/controls, squad behavior, cover behavior, and gameplay cameras.
REFLECT ON YOUR CHOICES: Your choices seamlessly travel from one game to the next. Each decision you make will control the outcome of every mission, every relationship, every battle – and even the fate of the galaxy itself. Performance Mode Options: Supports ultra-high refresh rates on PC, and offers a choice between “Favor Quality” for increased resolution or “Favor Framerate” to boost your FPS on consoles.
As we understand it, the original Mass Effect DLC “Pinnacle Station” will not be included as the game code for the content turned out to be corrupted beyond repair. As “Pinnacle Station” was little more than a training simulator, it is no great loss to the overall experience. The removal of Mass Effect 3‘s more popular multiplayer mode will definitely cause more of an outcry.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will be available on both last-gen and current-gen consoles, Steam, and EA Origin.
