EA has announced that much anticipated Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be launching on May 14th for Xbox One with "targeted enhancements" for Xbox Series X|S.

The collection comes packed with Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, and over 40 pieces of post-launch content from the entire trilogy. Each game has been fully remastered and optimized with 4K visuals, and will also include performance mode options. Quality will favour resolution, while framerate will boost the FPS.

Alongside visual improvements, the original Mass Effect has also received a gameplay overhaul to bring it more inline with later entries. Improved aiming, controls, camera and cover shooting is said to have been reworked for the new release. New customisation styles have also been incorporated to the Shepard character, including the female option originally seen in Mass Effect 3 now available in all titles.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is now available to pre-order on the Microsoft Store for £59.99 / $59.99, and all EA Play (and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate) members can get a discount of 10% off that price.

"The Mass Effect™ Legendary Edition includes single-player base content and over 40 DLC from the highly acclaimed Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 games, including promo weapons, armors, and packs – remastered and optimized for 4K Ultra HD."
