Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is out this Friday, and there's still time to preorder for some sweet retailer-exclusive bonuses.


After years of rumors and fans clamoring for it, a remastered edition of the Mass Effect Trilogy is finally about to release. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition launches this Friday, May 14, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will also be playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X due to backwards compatibility. Time is running out to preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and get its preorder bonuses, so considering securing your copy today if you know it's a day-one purchase for you.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition includes all three games in the core series as well as over 40 pieces of DLC, including special weapons and armor packs, campaign expansions, and more. The games will be playable in 4K with HDR and feature improved character models, high-resolution textures, and other visual enhancements.

If you preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition at Best Buy, you'll receive a steelbook case that you can store your game disc in. This appears to be a different steelbook than the one that's included in the Legendary Cache Bundle.

Preorder Mass Effect: Legendary Edition at GameStop, and you'll get this exclusive poster to hang on your wall. If you order online, you'll need to bring your order confirmation page to your local store to receive the bonus; the listing suggests calling ahead of time to confirm availability.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will surely help fans endure the wait for the next mainline Mass Effect game. Announced during The Game Awards 2020 with a brief teaser trailer, the new entry in the series doesn't have a title just yet. No release window has been revealed, but BioWare is also working on Anthem and Dragon Age 4, so it's unlikely it'll release anytime soon.
