Mass Effect: Legendary Edition official artwork and logo

[Update #2]: Mass Effect Legendary Edition has now been unleashed without too many technical issues or bugs!

[Update]: BioWare has detailed the gameplay changes coming in with the Legendary Edition.

If you're looking for an excuse to dive back into the Mass Effect universe, you'll be pleased to hear that the Legendary Edition will be launching in a mere few months. To be more specific, the remastered versions of all three games will be making their way to PC, PlayStation and Xbox on May 14, 2021!

You can expect to see support for 4K resolutions and improved visuals, including character models and environmental textures, as well as updates to the shaders, lighting and VFX. Best of all, the Legendary Edition will also include all of the singleplayer DLC for all three games, so no more wrestling with nonsense like BioWare coins and convoluted menus on the PC version!

What all of these improvements look like in action, however, that you can see through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:

The final thing worth mentioning is that the Legendary Edition will also bring with it some nice gameplay changes. Locations like Eden Prime, Ilos and Feros will be getting some added detail, while the combat systems will be modernized through improved aiming controls, squad behavior, Mako handling and better cameras.

Needless to say, this is all pretty good stuff. So as long as Mass Effect: Legendary Edition launches without any sort of major problems, it'll most certainly be the best way to play the trilogy from this point onward.

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once we get a proper gameplay trailer.
