Another rumor about the “Mass Effect” remaster ends another rumor about the “Mass Effect” remaster, and folks, I'll be honest: I'm really stressed out.

Mass Effect 3

A small disclaimer in advance: It won't be a pure one "We look at the facts"-News, I am emotionally, shall we say, quite heavily invested in the subject and have a very intense love for the "Mass Effect" series. This is going to be soulful, dramatic and I try not to curse because my mom could read this and she doesn't want me to say "shit" on the internet.

The hanger for this is a Article from VentureBeat in which it is about the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition goes, that's what the remaster should be called. In the article, Jeff Grubb reports that a release was actually planned for October 2020, but that the whole thing is now postponed to 2021 due to Covid-19. And the thought that I would have been able to play a remaster of Mass Effect in just a few weeks is really boring me.

The rumor has been circulating for ages and got through the same Jeff Grubb new upswing in May of this yearwhen he came up with a remaster as a safe plan from EA for this year. Since then there have been countless hints and rumors, most prominently through the announcement of the remaster on the website of a Portuguese dealer.

But there is still nothing official from EA or BioWare. There is always this beautiful sentence "This information should be taken with a grain of salt" and I always take the salt of my tears at the game, which brings us to the topic.

Of love and passion

Evil tongues claim that I have an obsession with the games, but I broke up with that – that is, the tongue and not the obsession. Not because of Mass Effect, that would be silly, she also thought The Witcher was stupid and at some point the measure is just full. Many of you probably have a game that you just think is great and to which they soak up every news. Well, with me it's Mass Effect, a series that is nowhere near perfect, and yet I've put hundreds of hours into the trilogy. I explain why these games have enriched my life so much in my column on video game grind.

The bottom line is that Mass Effect was easy one of the best video game experiences of my life. That's why I'm dying to see it all again with a better look. And that's why I cry bitter krogan tears into my Normandy bed linen when I hear such news and fortunately every time I am distracted by the thought that the fabric is incredibly soft for ten-year-old cheap merch.

It will be a while before Mass Effect Andromeda appears. To pass the time until then, you can simply answer our quiz and prove to yourself and your friends that you are the ultimate fan. Have fun!

A humble wish

I'm at a point where I don't even want to know when it's coming. At EA or BioWare someone should just write me a nice email that says: “Everything will be fine, Daniel. We are working on it and will let you know as soon as we know when we can start. "

According to Jeff Grubb, the biggest problem is bringing the original Mass Effect, the oldest game, to the visual level of the other two parts. I understand that well, Mass Effect is a difficult entry into the trilogy today. Not just because you can tell the age of the game, it just feels awkward to play. The multiplayer of Mass Effect 3 is said to have completely canceled EA. Not really surprising, because EA certainly doesn't want to turn off servers and support for "just" one remaster. There are sure to be fans in the community who will miss the mode. The mode wasn't bad, but for me it was just a bonus with which points could be collected for the readiness evaluation and the Place for in-game purchases. Who did I say is the publisher? EA?

If Jeff is right and the postponement is real and simply due to the pandemic, of course that's more than understandable. I want a remaster of the trilogy with all the DLCs, the developers should take the time they need because it should be good. Just tell me you guys are doing it. Nevertheless: If it goes fast, it doesn't matter.
