BioWare has announced Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, a remake of the Mass Effect trilogy. The game will not come to the new generation consoles Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X.
The Mass Effect series is known as a game with many fans. Nowadays, where movies are shot with new actors and games are renewed over and over again, this production, which has a huge fan base, is getting ready to be among the renewed ones.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, a remake of the Mass Effect trilogy, was not that surprising to fans of the series. Fans of the game on every platform await the package that will be released in 2021.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will not come to new consoles
In the statement about the game, a disappointing detail has emerged for those who are preparing to play the game on new consoles. Accordingly, the game will not work on the new generation consoles Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X. It will be possible to buy the game only for previous generation consoles.
Looking at the popularity of the game, BioWare surprised everyone by making such a decision. However, this decision does not mean that the company completely ignores the new generation consoles. Rather than making special versions, BioWare will use a feature called “targeted development” for these devices. There is no explanation for the structure of this feature for now.
Even before BioWare adds this feature, the game will include 4K Ultra HD support. It is also reported that the visuals will be improved and will have a higher image refresh rate. Thus, the game will look its best yet.
Ubisoft’s interesting decision

Ubisoft’s decision is actually quite striking, as well as confusing what the company’s purpose is. Because even before it is developed, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition features are too much for the current consoles. It is striking that the game was designed with new consoles in mind.
How BioWare will improve the game and update it for new consoles is very curious. Regardless, it will be nice to see our old friend Shephard once again.
