We've been seeing rumours, reports and even product listings for Mass Effect Legendary Edition in recent months, and now BioWare has finally made it official, with a targeted release in Spring 2021.

The game will feature single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons armours and packs - all remastered and optimised for 4K Ultra HD.

BioWare says it's been hard at work updating the textures, shaders, models, effects, and technical features of the three games, with the intention to modernise the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form.

It’s been amazing to see the adventures of Commander Shepard take on new life in super-sharp resolution, faster framerates, and beautiful visual enhancements. As game developers, we always hope that our games will transcend their original platforms. Having the opportunity to remaster the trilogy means that the fruits of a decade of our work will live on, and will be experienced better and clearer than ever before.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be available for Xbox One when it releases next year, with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X (and presumably S) planned as well.

In a bit of additional news, the developer also says it's been "hard at work envisioning the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe," but is in early stages on the project, and can't say anything more just yet.
