There’s been a lot of talk about Mass Effect these days, not just the usual reason that Mass Effect is great. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition remastering is underway, Mass Effect 5 is in the early stages of development, and the times are good for fans of one of BioWare’s largest RPG game series. Well, there’s a special reason to celebrate today, friend, it’s Mass Effect’s birthday.
Yes, the original Mass Effect was first launched on November 20, 2007 in North America, exactly 13 years ago. The Xbox 360 version was released in Australia and Europe a few days later, but the PC was released on May 28, 2008. The version is now available. (Remember the days when you had to wait months for most PC versions of major games, not just some?)
Mass Effect remasters have been rumored for most of the year, and fans want it even longer. The reason is easy to understand. BioWare shooters and RPG hybrids have intricately detailed sci-fi worldbuilding, adorable repetitive character casts, and bad enough to make sure we value the good. There is enough controversy.
Hopefully, both the remaster and the new entries in the series will remind you of good times rather than bad times.
By the way, this month Dragon Age also had a birthday … Is it the time of the release date of Dragon Age 4? Come on, BioWare, you know what you want to do …
