Mass Effect Legendary Edition release date set for 14 May

I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favourite remaster on the Citadel.

The Mass Effect Legendary Edition release date was today set as 14 May across Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4, EA has today advised.

“Relive the legend of Commander Shepard in 4K Ultra HD with HDR compatibility in the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, featuring single-player base content and 40+ DLC story, weapons and armor packs from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3,” EA said in a press release.

Each of the titles in the Mass Effect trilogy has been given some extra love, with remastered character models, shaders and visual effects alongside enhanced pre-rendered cinematics. The titles will also support 21:9 widescreen monitors and DirectX 11 on PC.

“The original Mass Effect features comprehensive world-building enhancements with added detail as you explore locations like Eden Prime, Ilos and Feros,” EA continued. “Mass Effect features updated interfaces and UI as well as a variety of quality of life improvements. Combat and
exploration have been modernized through improved aiming, squad controls and behavior, Mako handling and cameras.”

We’ve got a full list of what’s been improved throughout the trilogy right here.

Expect Mass Effect Legendary Edition from 14 May on Windows PC via EA Play and Steam alongside Xbox One and PS4.
