The highly-anticipated release of Mass Effect Legendary Edition is just around the corner on May 14th, which is remastering the first three Mass Effect games, and we've been treated to loads of new footage and details.
IGN has provided the ten minutes of gameplay above, which delves into a performance preview between the original and remastered versions of the games, highlighting some of the new features that have been implemented.
Meanwhile, EA has gone into massive detail about some of the changes in Mass Effect Legendary Edition on its website, talking at length about certain gameplay improvements such as combat and ability tuning for the first game, improved boss fights, an easier-to-control M-35 Mako, unified customisation options and much, much more.
We highly recommend checking out the full "gameplay calibrations" article on the EA website if you want more details about Mass Effect Legendary Edition's gameplay, and extra info on the games' visual changes will be arriving next week.
"Getting to go back to the roots of the Mass Effect franchise—our roots, as a team now celebrating our 25th anniversary—has been an incredibly nostalgic and emotional experience for us, and we’re sure a lot of you will feel similarly when you get to play Legendary Edition!
Returning to where it all began, as members of our team revisited the work they did over a decade ago, has been a bit surreal, but it felt like the right thing to do; a passion project from us to thank you for the many years of incredible support."

Ok i was gonna wait but i think i'll make this a day one buy. Mass Effect Triple Dip for the win i own the old collections on both Ps3 and Xbox 360
I pre-ordered this as soon as it became available. I don't care whether it comes to the GamesPass, I want to own it! I also ordered the Collector's edition from the US. The delivery to the UK for that alone was $70.
My only disappointment is in there being no multiplayer for 3. I sunk hundreds of hours into that element of the game alone, and to this day remain in the top 1% worldwide. I'd happily pay for a standalone of the multiplayer, should it ever be remastered too...
I never really played these games unlike Dragon Age so I think I will be buy this one it probably will be put onto EA Play and therefore Gamepass in the future but I doubt that will be for at least 6 months after release.
The first is still my favourite. Those Mako sections look really cool. The OG still looks pretty great on an S/X console.
Mako improvements are a huge plus ... now it's a day one.
That's looking really good. I'm totally fine that it's not a next-gen quality game. It looks good enough, and we'll get it at 60fps.
Can't wait to experience this series for the first time..
@Fiendish-Beaver I would also buy the multiplayer separately if it ever came. I'm probably in the very bottom of any rankings, but I'm having a lot of fun with it now. Maybe one day there will be an expanded version with more options, arenas... One can only hope
the originals look and run great on series x so ive been doing one last playthrough with the auto HDR on and way better load times before i leave the original trilogy alone and switch to the legendary edition
Can't wait. I'm so happy EA has finally pulled their heads out of their ... you know what, and granted us this wish.
EA being EA, I will happily wait for a discount provided I don't find a good 25%-50% off deal for day one like I do most games.
The fact that they didn't gimp ME1 like they did the later games, but just polished its edges, is fantastic news.
@Bmartin001 You're in for a treat. Especially now that you'll experience the remastered versions which will have some of the less-than-stellar mechanics updated and polished(mako driving).
I spent hours replaying Mass Effect 1. Never got around to the other games but I will this time around.
I've never played any of these and am looking forward to it, tempted to pre-order but may wait due to Resident Evil being released on the 8th.
I won’t be replaying them but I’m kinda jealous of anyone who’s going to be experiencing Mass Effect 2 for the first time. One of the finest games ever made.
