While the memorable Mass Effect series has stood among the bevy for more than a decade, it came as a surprise to witness no reworked version for the games entering the 8th generation of console hardware. However, rumors continued to surface as hope still grew in once corner of the galaxy. That was until the BioWare unveiled Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. So now, fans of the original trilogy can return to experience the story of Commander Shepard on the newest systems.
Even with the promise for the latest Xbox Series X|S & PlayStation 5 to be compatible with the trio of remastered titles, all is left is for the official release date. Earlier this year, the developer alongside publisher Electronic Arts announced that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will arrive in May 2021. But, an in-depth comparison is surely needed as well.

Atop of the approaching release for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, there is more in the Mass Effect pipeline. For one, BioWare unveiled the next project in the series. Back during 2020’s The Game Awards, the game studio offered a brief teaser trailer for the game. Context on the orientation of the story or an expected release has yet to be shared.
Additionally, there also happens to be speculation for a Mass Effect television show.
