Mass Effect Legendary Edition Release Likely March 12th

The EA-announced, Bioware-developed love letter to the original Mass Effect trilogy will be seeing a remastered once-over that brings the games' graphics up to today's standards. As much as possible, of course, whilst keeping the "Remaster" tag instead of the "remake" one - it seems that the Legendary Edition of the original Mass Effect will still keep those long treks on scannable planets. The improved versions of the original trilogy of games will feature improved graphics, alongside higher resolution and refresh rate support. The Legendary Edition will further bring together all the pre and post-launch DLC for each release, bringing those together for a cohesive package.

The 12th march release date is derived from release dates online stores Shopitree and GSShop have attached to the game, and has since been confirmed by Eurogamer, whose site editor Tom Phillips added that "...barring any further delays, Eurogamer understands the above date to be currently accurate". It seems we won't have long to wait until we can vault through the stars against the Reapers once more.

Well at least I might get to play 10 hrs on EA Play to see if this is worth it. 2 was one of the best PC Games I ever played but 3 did not even spark aa bit of interest in me.

Yet another remaster? How mentally drained and creatively bankrupt are todays AAA game developers? No new ideas on horizon? Gaming industry is becoming 2nd Hollywood.

It's what fans have been begging for, so to please the fans they are doing it, and it's probably a 1 / 4 of their team that is doing it so the others are working on projects.

I am scared they will fuck it up, but I am looking forward to reviews.

Maybe don't comment on things you know nothing about?
The games are old as hell and quite dated, yet still extremely popular.
I know I am buying this, and I haven't even finished ME2 yet.

Well, I certainly WANT this remaster if it's done right.
(I got ME1 running with a half decent mod pack and fixed the AMD CPU shadow issue... but I'd love to replay ME1 with better quality textures. I like all the games in the trilogy. They screwed up trying to capitalize on Multiplayer so stripped out the core features that made it a great single player game when ME Andromeda came out. Ugh.)
I've never understood why people whine about remasters as a general concept. You aren't forced to buy the game. The company wants to make money. People who want an older game in an improved state get what they want (hopefully). So win-win. And if the company makes a profit they can put that towards a new game. Win, win, win.
