Mass Effect Trilogy is highly anticipated by fans worldwide, and the good news is it could be released in October. However, one could not deny the delays caused by Covid-19, possibly pushing the release date towards late this year.
It can be remembered that rumors rose about BioWare’s work on remastering a famous trilogy that will be specifically tailored for the new generation of consoles and players. This report put fans in a frenzy, even though it wasn’t clear yet at that time from what franchise will the project come.
Fortunately, a journalist finally revealed that publisher EA is planning to release the remastered trilogy this October. Note, though, that the product would be more of an upgrade than a full remake.
According to GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb, the original plan was to announce the project in early October and to release it late that month. However, since it’s already 2020 and nothing has been announced nor confirmed yet, the timeline could possibly slip. Although he affirmed that the remastered Mass Effect Trilogy is real, as he has seen adequate evidence of the work.
Grubb further deduced that EA is possibly paving the way for Mass Effect Trilogy to be the other big thing for about $60 on the holidays. Nonetheless, he also admitted that he could see why EA would like to delay the release, considering that practically everything is falling apart at the moment.
In the end, he didn’t really confirm anything. Everything is just a possibility. All he consistently stuck into was the publisher’s original plan of announcing and releasing the remastered Mass Effect Trilogy in October 2020.
On the other hand, a new book focused on the art of the Mass Effect Trilogy is now open for pre-orders. The book was entitled “Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition” and is expected to be released on February 23, 2021.
Interestingly, however, BioWare and Electronic Arts both didn’t publicize the artbook just yet. Right now, it seems to be available just for its US-based fans.
As you can check on Amazon, this book is described as something that contains hundreds of expanded, never-before-seen works of art that delves deeper into the sci-fi saga that altered video games forever. It will also showcase extensive new material from the DLCs for all three games, including Lair of the Shadow Broker from Mass Effect 2 and Citadel from Mass Effect 3.
