Mass Effect Legendary Edition: A faithful remake.
Nine years after the release of Mass Effect Trilogy, the license developed by Bioware returns in May in a very successful Legendary Edition. Sylvain explains why the latter is a real remaster of the science fiction saga.
A historic trilogy from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 years, Mass Effect returns in a complete Edition with over 40 DLCs.
In this revisited mount, Bioware does not change the basic recipe, unlike Square Enix with FF VII: Remake; for example, the story and the characters’ fate remain the same. Nevertheless, this revisited trilogy incorporates 4K textures and 60 fps.
But that’s not all. Bioware has decided to focus on the overall player experience, not to offer just one graphics update. This, therefore, results in revisited animations, redesigned boss fights, and an RPG aspect inspired by the third episode of the saga.
Finally, Bioware justifies its choice of remastering over a remake to satisfy players’ first nostalgia.
This also explains the absence of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition on the new generation of the console: the engine of the original game, kept for this reissue, does not have the capacities required to take full advantage of the PS5 or the Xbox Series.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is slated for release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 14. Stay tuned for the next update.
