Mass Effect Trilogy HD Remaster For PS4/Xbox One Being Considered

Bioware General Manager Aaryn Flynn says a PS4/Xbox One remastering of Mass Effect has been discussed internally.

Those of you who missed out on Bioware's Mass Effect trilogy the first time around may be in for another chance, as Bioware General Manager Aaryn Flynn has stated that a HD remastering of the games for the PS4 and Xbox One is something the studio is considering. "We have discussed that internally," said Flynn over Twitter, responding to a fan request about a potential HD re-release. "If we can put solid plans together we'll share," he added.

HD re-releases for (next)current-gen systems seem to be all the rage these days, especially given that neither the Xbox One nor the PS4 are backwards compatible. For the record, a special edition of Mass Effect 3 was made available for the Wii U, but as of now, there's no way to experience the original Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 on next-gen (unless, of course, you're a PC gamer).

Bioware Montreal has taken over development duties on Mass Effect, with original developer Bioware Edmonton now working on a brand new IP. The story of Mass Effect 4 won't relate to Shepard or the events of the previous three games, and is reportedly already in a playable state, while the new IP will share "core systems" with Dragon Age 3.

Nice to know that more people will get a chance to play this amazing trilogy. Whist your at it can you patch the original mass effect on pc to fix the poor textures on garus please they where not always like that.

I don't care that I already have the complete trilogy box-set for the PS3; I would be prepared to get them all again for the PS4.

If they think it'll sell, all the power to them. I'm sure the extra high res textures will look nice as the story and plot fall apart.

Release ME3 Game of the Year Edition!

Seriously guys, have you seen the price of DLC on the PC!?

The infinite power of the Xbone cloud will make the games truly spectacular, last gen consoles just couldn't handle the processing power needed to put a colour filter over a video which is the only reason why people disliked the ending of ME3 so much!

Ok...i have to ask...seriously, why?

The trilogy is all in HD anyway, the majority of console owners are still using last gen and this would only serve as a slight polishing, repackaged and sold at a higher...

....Oh! NOW i understand what bandwagon they're attempting to jump on when they made these consoles non-backwards compatible. Twats!

for mass effect 2 and 3 i agree its far too soon and not needed, but the original is in some serious needs of higher resolution textures for all platforms.

I'm down for that, missed ME3 because fuck Origin.

Also, Suicide Mission was great, worth buying for that alone.

Now releasing the mass effect trilogy. Filled with extras, and all the dlc. Experience the journey of a series who's character writing keep getting better (except for a few outliers like the illusive man, Miranda, and Kie "fu you cheap illogical sob" Lang) while the actual story got worse. Come join the disappointment as you play for 60+ hours only for the ending to kick you in the balls. Available now.

I would consider purchasing this, I was somewhat interested in Mass Effect but as a PlayStation owner I wasn't about to start from number 2, that seems counter to the very idea of the game.

If this comes with all the DLC, I'd definitely be tempted to pick this up again. Playing through the trilogy at the moment, and while it's great, a few improvements could definitely be made on a next-gen version.

As one of the weirdos who actually liked the original ending and hated the extended cut, I sincerely hope that if they do do this, you have the option to choice which you get. Because seriously, fuck the extended cut.

It might actually be worth it if Bioware would take time to improve upon some of ME3's low effort moments (seriously, quite a few of these were painfully obvious) and fix the broken quest journal, iron out some of the other oversights in the rest of the trilogy, and include all the DLC in the package.

(Well, yeah, it would nice if something was done about the ending, but I have long since accepted it is impossible...)

Well, I'm a sucker for "that thing you liked, but shinier", so if they present me with a nice all-inclussive package, I might pick this up.

It'd be nice if they could fix the frame rate and the texture load issues in the first game at least. I don't know how much more they could pretty up the sequels though.

Wow, that took all of 3 comments before we got to the inevitable ending/overall plot of ME3 comments; I think we've discussed that to death now and we can [nearly] all agree that there were serious screw ups in the plot of ME3, and a lot of a wasted potential.

OT: Can we get a HD edition of ME1 for the PC to? Not too bothered about ME2 & 3 at the moment, because they came out relatively recently and aren't that far behind the graphical curve. And yes, the including the all or at least most DLC would be the sensible choice, but I will be very surprised if EA understand that.

I would prefer proper controller support in the PC version.

If it comes with all the DLC on disc, then I'll pick it up.

If it's anything like the trilogy collection available now (which has next to none of the DLC) I'll give it a miss.

There already is the trilogy edition, which is cool for PS3 owners, since they've missed the first game. I have been postponing buying it, though, in the faint hope that there might be something coming for the PS4. If I can choose, I'd rather get the shinier version of something I haven't played before, without paying twice for it.

Mass Effect 1 was released through the PSN a while back, so you can now actually play the entire trilogy on the PS3. The PS3 version of ME1 includes the Bring Down the Sky DLC, sadly not Pinnacle Station as apparently Bioware lost the files for it (sounds weird, but that's the excuse).

Honest to goodness, if this came out on PC and included redone textures and effects, I would buy it. The PC versions of the Mass Effect games are pretty lackluster console ports, with an inexplicable broken lighting system on some rigs (including mine).

Mass Effect 4 won't relate to Shepard or the events of the previous three games

yes, because they know they ran the original story into the wall, perfectly. And are now trying with 'rebooting' everything.
nice*

*aka Fuck you Bioware

I think it will be a push for them to run at 1080p 60fps since the new consoles are struggling to even get close to one or the other at this point.

Also aren't the ME games in HD anyway? 2 and 3 are without a doubt even if some of the texture qualities are a bit lackluster. (The low res enemies in the background at the start of ME3 comes to mind)

I think the original ending failed on every last conceivable level for being any sort of "ending" that made any sense, provided any closure, or matched the themes and tone of the rest of the 120+ hours spent with the franchise. What an abomination.

The Extended Cut isn't perfect, but it addressed a large majority of the issues and brought that "F" up to a passable "B".

OT: I'd... probably buy a remastered version, despite how much money I've already sunk into the franchise (I've been holding out on a sale for the last DLC of Omega and Leviathan). But, well, calling it an "HD remaster" is a bit redundant; the games already are in HD. The first game, sure, could use a serious kick in the pants, and those plastic hair helmets universally need to be improved (give it the Lara Croft treatment).

But, honest, and truly, I'd like a complete, total, inclusive PS4/XB1 collection to future-proof the series for me, since my Xbox 360 is failing (yet again), and I know all that progress is going to eventually be lost... sooner than I'd like.

That said, I would ask for FIVE small, simple changes/additions:
1) TALI'S FACE. Don't you skimp out on us like last time
2) Fix Garrus's face in the original (such low resolution)
3) Don't care how superfluous and unnecessary it is, give me ONE mission in ME3 with a Mako or Hammerhead. Just one.
4) Fix Allers' puffy wax face. Or replace her with Emily Wong, like everyone wanted.
5) Put Anderson's cut speech back into the game about how Shepard is like the son/daughter he never had. That was too good to cut.

Yes, I dare to dream of the impossible. Thanks in advance, Bioware.

Wow... I don't know which is more depressing, that the best they can do is make the same game they already made; literally. This isn't like how every COD is the same game or ever Mario game is basically the same, this is literally paying more for the exact same game. Wake up, this is just an excuse to charge $60 per game for a game that's basically like 8 years old at this point.

YOu do know this means thge non HD will vanish from all distribution? RIght?

FOr god's sakes just make some new games.

I doubt that Bioware has any intention to fix Mass Effects bugs (Garrus' wierd texture glitch in ME1, Conrad claiming Paragon Shepard put a gun to his face in ME2, etc.) but I'm sure EA would be open to the idea of getting Bioware to put a slight texture size increase and sell it again for $60.

BioWare has been pretty up front even before the release of Mass Effect 3 that ME3 was going to be the end of Shepard's story, and that any new game after ME3 would have a whole new story and characters. That's not a reboot, it's a typical spin-off.

I'm not sure whether I should want BioWare to do this or not but I know I would buy it if they did. I get the feeling that I'm not alone in this.

*PS4

I've got enough friends who haven't gotten around to playing the whole series, and if they do will probably miss out on some of the good DLC, that I could make use of this. I also love the series to death, and would probably end up getting it myself.

Okay, didn't know that. It's gonna take me a while to churn through Dark Souls II then Witch & the Hundred Knight but I'll probably give it a go after that. Way to cost their PS4 bundle a sale ;P

I guarantee you that textures and lighting from the modding community will easily surpass any sub-1080p "HD" re-release for PS4/Xbone.

If they do, I better get a fix for ME1 so that my brand new AMD CPUs don't make impossible to play -_-

First off they would have to make ME2 and ME3 like ME one then put in alot of optional Mako bits because scanning is for suckers. And then I might buy it. Oh and it has to be on PC too.

I think there is a misconception that BioWare would actually make the port to HD considering the ports of Jade Empire to the PC, Mass Effect 1 to the PC, Mass Effect 2 to the PS3, and Mass Effect 3 to the Wii-U have been outsourced to another company. So any bugs issues or problems people have with the games probably won't be addressed at all, the only thing that might happen is that we are given the DLC, but then I see the price of the game being higher then people would be willing to pay or each game would be released individually.

if they include all the DLC with it id buy a Xbox one or PS4 version of the trilogy hell id even pay $60 if it came with all the DLC for all 3 games otherwise id pass.
