You might have seen a rumour cropping up over the past few days suggesting Mass Effect Legendary Edition is coming to Xbox Game Pass soon, but after doing a little extra digging, we're not so sure that's the case.
A couple of eagle-eyed Reddit users appeared to spot this initially, noticing that the Xbox Game Pass logo had been added to Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and Polish website XGP also pointed this out over on their website.
However, if you check the 'All Games' section of the GB Xbox Store right now, you'll find that every EA game is currently sporting the Game Pass logo, including recently released titles such as F1 2021, Lost in Random and NHL 22. If you click through to their actual game pages, the logo disappears again. In short, it looks like a mistake.
Of course, that's not to say Mass Effect Legendary Edition won't come to Xbox Game Pass eventually. Most EA titles find their way over to EA Play as time rolls on, which itself is included with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
With Mass Effect Legendary Edition releasing back in May, we're starting to approach the point where EA might be considering adding the game to the EA Play library. But in this specific case, we're more inclined to believe the Game Pass mention is just a simple mistake.

I'm happy to wait. Played it to completion on PS5 a few months ago. An example of a stellar job making a remaster (as opposed to some other recent disasters). It would be cool to have it available in GP, though.
It takes two came out in March 2021 and got added to game pass in November 2021. So if Mass Effect Legendary Edition came out in May 2021 it'll probably be added around February/March time.
It will be on EA Play in a few months I'm sure and I'll play it then. Looking forward to it as I only played a few hours of ME1 on 360 back in the day.
@Alduin only thing I can see is maybe a bit earlier as the first few months of the year are pretty quiet, and GP could do with a few good 3rd party releases like that.
Its almost certainly going to be on EA Play which of course is available as part of the Game Pass Ultimate package. I can't see it being that long until its added - its not a new game as such as these were all on the 360 generation and all available via BC too. Also a lot of EA games seem to come to EA Play within 6-12months so its only a matter of time...
Give it 6-12 months
It’s always been a case of when not if.
Is now the time though? We will find out when officially announced. It would be appreciated early that’s for sure.
How is this news? Take a look at Lost in Random in the sale. It has the GAME PASS tag on the cover.
It just means that it has a discount because it is part of EA play
I gave up on Legendary Edition, and decided next time I play through I'm going back to the originals. There were bugs that were truly breaking my immersion in the game, and it's clear that Bioware and EA don't care as no one ever responds to tickets submitted on their site. They just dropped support for it.
Maybe with more people playing them on Game Pass they'll pay attention again, but I doubt it
i mean it will end up there if you have ultimate once ea throws it on EA access i can wait waited this long to play any mass effect(never played them) i can wait longer if need be
