VentureBeat previously hinted that the HD remasters of Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 would be sold in a single package dubbed the Legendary Edition. That report appears to have been correct, as the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea (via Gematsu) has released an updated Excel sheet of rated products containing that very same title.

According to Jeff Grubbs (who broke the story in September), Mass Effect Legendary Edition was supposed to release in October but got delayed because BioWare was having difficulty remastering the original game. While the work done with Mass Effect 2 and 3 was described as “impressive,” it was hinted that Mass Effect was in such bad shape that it would have turned new players away from the rest of the trilogy.

“This is a problem with both the visuals and gameplay,” Grubb wrote. “The people working on the game understand the issues, and they want to do right by the franchise’s fans.”

While Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer has been dropped, Mass Effect Legendary Edition will include all of the downloadable content that was previously released for all three games. That would include staples such as “Lair of the Shadow Broker” (Mass Effect 2) and “Leviathan” (Mass Effect 3).

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is expected to release in early 2021 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
