Here's an interesting little discovery! Microsoft has been emailing some Xbox users who have pre-ordered Mass Effect Legendary Edition over the weekend, telling them that the game will available earlier than expected later this week.
Specifically, the email mentions that the game's availability date is Thursday, May 13 rather than Friday, May 14 as originally advertised, and this isn't limited to one region - players across multiple regions have been getting this email.
As you can see, there's still a bit of scepticism about whether this is the real deal, and the Microsoft Store still seems to be showing a release date of May 14 for most users, so the whole thing is a little confusing right now.
Hopefully we'll get some clarification very soon, and we might be playing it earlier than we'd anticipated!

I've not even got a preload option yet, so I'd be surprised if they brought it forward one day.
to be honest that email doesn't seem very legit
Still no pre load here so I hope not. That's a lot to download on day one.
That email looks sketchy as hell, I call BS..
I got the same email, and am also confused as to what the true date for release is. I also checked the senders email. It is:
<[email protected]> I don't see how it could be fake?
I received the email too. I don't see how it can be a fake as they would have to specifically target people that have actually pre-ordered the game. Were it fake, people that had not pre-ordered the game would also be receiving the email.
Roll on the 13the....
I got the email also. And it looks legit.
About bloody time Microsoft delivered a good timed exclusive 😂👍
Well technically you can play it in the 13th, if you are in the Western side of the world and change your Console's to New Zealand (work with Preordered digital edition of any game).
Maybe with this, we could potentially be playing as soon as Wednesday?
It's 100% a real email. I got it, and it mentioned my order number in the email. No-one except microsoft would know that.
@Dezzy They also have the date you ordered it too, so more proof of it being legit. Now we just need to wait and see if it does come out a day early
@weaponx69 I’ve just loaded up my Xbox to find it’s started pre-loading the game now
@SubjectNine just restarted my series x and I got a 20.77 gb update but not the full download.
@weaponx69 that’s the same as mine, it’s better than nothing, but hopefully we get the full game pre-loaded before launch
Regardless of it being real or not, it's one day difference.
This just started preloading too, which is earlier than they were saying, I think.
Got that 20GB preload yesterday.
Full game is 90GB, so I wonder if they are rolling out each game, ie we've preloaded ME 1 yesterday?
well its still listed for tomorrow on the american and UK, so wonder what the deal with those emails are, but it still a little early so might change in a few hours, strange its still saying tomorrow on the store, maybe it will unlock early for those whom preordered?
