Importantly, EA only just recently brought its games to Steam, having previously released them exclusively through Origin on PC. Still, starting off with more than 59,000 concurrent users is seemingly a positive sign and indicative of the strength of the Mass Effect series.

The Legendary Edition includes updated versions of Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3. If you're looking for some help getting started, we've assembled a number of Mass Effect Legendary Edition tips, tricks, and guides to help you out.

BioWare is also working on a brand-new Mass Effect game to follow 2017's Mass Effect: Andromeda. The game, which is being worked on by a team of veterans, is likely still in the early stages of development and is expected to release after Dragon Age 4.
