The four-wheeled Mako drives within an icy inhospitable wasteland.

BioWare and EA have released a trailer for the upcoming Mass Effect: Legendary Edition via the official Mass Effect YouTube Channel showcasing the remasters’ updated sci-fi cityscapes and beloved characters against the visuals of the original trilogy, all in crisp 4K resolution. Check it out, with a backing track catapulting me to circa 2011, below!

As seen above, the differences seen are stark and inarguably improved, with BioWare themselves detailing the process further in a lengthy blog post highlighting specifically what has changed within Mass Effect: Legendary Edition: 4K visuals, refined and intricate character models, redone lighting for cutscenes and gameplay sections, as well as a way to redesign and redefine the world in which players visit throughout the series.

Alongside its visuals and dedicated gameplay improvements, it seems that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is set to be the definitive version for players new and old to the franchise, including over 40+ single-player DLCs alongside the three games, in bringing its expansive vision to life. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is set to release on May 14th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC via the Origin and Steam platforms. It will also be compatible with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
