Honestly, we're just a little unreasonably excited about the upcoming release of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. Fans of BioWare's space saga have been waiting for a remaster of the Mass Effect games for a while now - every gaming event for a while had people hoping we'd see a trailer from EA. And now, after years of waiting to revisit the Normandy the release date May 14 is just around the corner. And although we're excited, BioWare is obviously ecstatic and wants you all to have some cool free stuff to celebrate.
First, the team has released some content originally reserved only for those who bought Deluxe editions of Mass Effect 2 and 3. This 1.7GB download gives you the 88 track Mass Effect OST (and a new bonus track for the release of the Legendary Edition), artbooks for Mass Effect 2 and 3, a detailed painting of the Normandy, as well as two comic books dedicated to expanding the games' story. That's a lot of cool free stuff just waiting there to download so do it now before it disappears on May 31.
Watch below to see a vast number of the improvements EA and BioWare have made to the series with Mass Effect: Legendary Edition:
Additionally, BioWare has released an awesome artwork creator so you can make your own cover for Mass Effect Legendary Edition. This means picking out your favourite team members and this site putting them all together, tailored to the crewmates you love the most. Of course, Garrus and Thane were my favourite two squadmates to keep around, but Tali and Jack are definitely close behind. You can try the Custom Art Creator here if you're interested in seeing your own piece, and to get excited about seeing your favourites again.
And finally, we have the YouTube video of Liara working hard on some space stuff with the Mass Effect soundtrack playing. It's all those 88 tracks you can download but packaged in a more, "Lo-fi Hip-Hop Radio - Beats To Relax/Study To" sort of vibe. I'm listening to it now as I write this, turns out it's great writing music.
