Want to see what a decade of graphical improvements looks like? Electronic Arts and BioWare have released an official comparison trailer for upcoming remaster collection, Mass Effect Legendary Edition.
The trailer shows off the new visual improvements that enhances the three games of the original trilogy for up to 4K Ultra HD and HDR lighting. There’s only so much they can do with an existing game, but it still looks pretty darn nice, especially with the close-up character models of beloved figures like Garrus, Tali, and Thane.
The Legendary Edition includes Mass Effect (2007), Mass Effect 2 (2010), and Mass Effect 3 (2012), as well as the following story DLC: Bring Down the Sky, Genesis, Zaeed — The Price of Revenge, Kasumi — Stolen Memory, Lair of the Shadow Broker, Firewalker Pack, Overlord, Normandy Crash Site, Arrival, Genesis 2, From Ashes, Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut, Leviathan, Omega, and Citadel. Also included are over a dozen weapons and gear packs; over 40 DLC in total.
The original Mass Effect trilogy are some of the most beloved games of the modern generation, and fans have been clamoring for an HD remaster for years. BioWare’s latest games, including Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem, have been largely disappointing. Hopefully this remaster will remind us of BioWare’s excellence.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is out May 14 on PC (Steam, Origin), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s rated M for Mature.
