Rumours of a remastered Mass Effect trilogy have once again been ignited, this time thanks to the release of an upcoming art book.
“Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition” will be hitting store shelves next year on March 23rd and, like previous Mass Effect art books and graphic novels, will be published by Dark Horse Comics.
Mass Effect fans are putting two and two together here, coming to conclusion that EA are planning to re-release their epic sci fi RPG trilogy at around the same time. Although EA have yet to officially confirm its existence, this ties in with earlier reports that Mass Effect Trilogy will be one of the many titles the publisher intends on release before its next fiscal year.
Here’s the art book blurb in full. In a nutshell, it’s a beefier re-release of the original with some added artwork from Mass Effect DLCs.
Expanded with never before seen works of art, this new edition delves deeper than ever into the sci-fi saga that changed video games forever.
Contains extensive new material from the DLCs for all three games–including the award-winning “Lair of the Shadow Broker” from Mass Effect 2 and the fan-favorite “Citadel” from Mass Effect 3.
Experience the evolution of the aliens, planets, ships, and technology that define this iconic science fiction universe, as the developers who brought BioWare’s masterpiece to life take you from the earliest design sketches through to the meticulous final renders.
Brimming with concept art and commentary, this expanded edition is the ultimate companion to one of the greatest series in the history of gaming!
The Art of the Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition will be available everywhere books are sold February 24, 2021. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, TFAW, and at your local comic shop. The Art of the Mass Efect Trilogy: Expanded Edition will retail for $39.99.
Although Mass Effect: Andromeda has its fans, the game’s buggy launch and lukewarm reception resulted in the series being shelved, BioWare cancelling the singleplayer DLC and updates it had originally planned. Still, there’s hope that EA will revive the landmark RPG series again, maybe with a next-gen reboot.
