Fans of the Mass Effect games who would like to play them on their new PS4 or Xbox One, or players who are interested in trying them for the first time, we’re pleased to let you know that new rumors suggest they are coming to the new generation consoles.

Chilean retailer ZMart has the Mass Effect Trilogy listed for both the PS4 and the Xbox One. This appears to be the complete trilogy in one package. The Mass Effect Trilogy for the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 contained some DLC, but which DLC it was depended on which version you got. We know a lot of fans would like to see the trilogy bundled with all of its major DLC packs.

Consider this a rumor until we hear something official from Bioware. We’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, let us know if you would buy the Mass Effect Trilogy for your PS4 or Xbox One, and share your thoughts on the series in general.

Next Mass Effect Game Might Be a Sequel

To say we don’t know much about the next Mass Effect game would be an understatement. All we really know is that Mass Effect 4 (which probably won’t even be its title) is being worked on and that it won’t feature Commander Shepard. After the Mass Effect 3 ending controversy, many fans react with uncertainty and suspicion whenever the topic comes up, despite the huge popularity of the Mass Effect trilogy. We expect the reception of Dragon Age: Inquisition will have a significant impact on people’s hopes/fears for Bioware’s other games, including Mass Effect.

Bioware is keeping quiet about the next Mass Effect game, refusing to even say whether it is a sequel, a prequel, or something else entirely. It’s a game set in the Mass Effect universe, and nothing else official has been stated. However, a question raised at PAX East has prompted some Reddit users to suspect the game of being a sequel.

Fan: “We know from the after-credits scene that tales of ‘The Shepard’ were told many years later, but what was the reaction to what Shepard did immediately after the battle on Earth?”

Bioware developer: “We can’t really talk about that at this time.”

While that far from confirms anything, we understand the suspicions–if the next game isn’t a sequel, why wouldn’t the developers answer a question like that? Nevertheless, take it as a rumor for now. There still are some issues surrounding the idea of a Mass Effect sequel, most notably the fact that Bioware would seemingly be forced to name a single ending as canon, unless it was set so far in the future that it didn’t matter.

Rumors abound in the absence of official details, and some sources claim the game is coming in spring 2015. We aren’t too sure we believe that, so keep your eyes on us for any official reports as they become available. In the meantime, share your own theories on when the next Mass Effect title will be set.

Imagine Mass Effect on the PS4 and Xbox One

March 3, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


Well, we still don’t have any details on Mass Effect 4, but if you never played the original trilogy—or if you would just love to play it with next-gen hardware—you might be pleased to know that Bioware is considering bringing out a remastered edition of the trilogy.

Back in December, a Twitter user asked Bioware General Manager Aaryn Flynn if there was any chance of a remastered Mass Effect Trilogy being made for the PS4 and Xbox One. Yesterday, Flynn responded, saying that Bioware has “discussed that internally.”

Now, this is certainly not a confirmation, but it shows that Bioware is open to the idea. It could very well become a reality. Flynn promised to share more details if they decide to do it, so we’ll keep you updated.

It seems a little soon to be considering something like this, with ME3 only two years old, but releases like Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition prove there is a viable market. Additionally, many fans never played the original Mass Effect. This could be a great idea, and we’d love to see Shepard’s story running on the power of the PS4 and Xbox One. What would you look forward to the most in a remastered ME trilogy?
