When someone talks about role-playing games, most people will be referencing to the masterpieces created by Bioware such as Mass Effect and Dragon Age with good reason. These games did not only provide ample entertainment to gamers, but it also established the bar of what an RPG should be.

I’ve probably replayed the Mass Effect and Dragon Age games more times than any other in my collection, and yet I’ve never got bored of it. So when I heard that there was a rumour that Mass Effect might be returning, I remained hopeful.

And now, finally, we have actual confirmation of it.

Bioware has a Mass Effect plan.

On N7 Day aka November 7, Bioware officially revealed that the team have been working on a remastered edition of the Mass Effect trilogy called the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. 

Despite not being a complete overhaul of the games in the form of a remake, the remaster will hold it’s own by giving fans a more refined gaming experience. The remaster will focus on delivering faster framerates, stunning visual enhancements, sharper resolution as well as being fully optimised for 4k Ultra HD for current-gen consoles and PC.

Bioware has also assured that there will be specific enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, but no details as to what they are as of now.

On top of that, Bioware revealed another surprise that will surely get your blood pumping out of excitement! The next chapter of the Mass Effect is already in the works and currently in the early stages of development.

The company also emphasised that a veteran team is in charge of the project, which should be reassuring to all; especially after the debacle of the last Mass Effect game, Andromeda.

Here’s to hoping that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition comes out sooner rather than later, so I can get my Shepard on!
