The game has entered the final stages of development.
It’s hard to believe, but it now been many years since the original Mass Effect trilogy wrapped up. While the ending of the series is still a controversial one, and the follow up (Mass Effect Andromeda) was largely seen as a disappointment, there is still fondness for the sci-fi franchise. That’s when there was much rejoicing when Mass Effect: Legendary Edition was announced, a remastered collection of all three titles, which you can see compared to the original through here as well as here. It also seems to be at the finishing line.
The game’s Project Director, Mac Walters, took to his official Twitter account to announcement that the game had gone gold. Typically, this means that a game is finished and ready to be printed on discs. Of course, in the digital age of patches and constant updates, that doesn’t mean what it once did, but either way, it seems this one most likely won’t be delayed.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will release on May 14th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with enhancements for those playing on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. You can also read about the game’s PC requirements and storage needs through here.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition has gone GOLD! It's been quite a journey – time to celebrate briefly. Maybe even dance a little… if that's you're thing. #MassEffect #Legendary pic.twitter.com/cvDmGjFrSi
