The Mass Effect Legendary Edition may be coming to Xbox Game Pass as early as this week, according to a seemingly accidental listing on the Xbox Store.
According to the Polish website XGP, and reported by VGC, the remastered collection of the original Mass Effect trilogy was briefly mentioned with the Game Pass logo on the box. In the past, this was an indication that an announcement was imminent, but in some cases also just plain error (Batman: Arkham Knight took months to reach the subscription service after the logo on the box art was also leaked earlier).
EA, publisher of Mass Effect, offers its own subscription service, EA Play, as part of Xbox Game Pass. The games vault is routinely updated with new additions, with most new releases making their way to the service within a year of release. With Mass Effect Legendary Edition launching in May 2021, this timing may have accelerated, despite the collection selling above EA’s expectations.
Developer BioWare is currently working on the next iteration of Dragon Age, but has also teased the next entry in the Mass Effect series. Earlier this month, a teaser suggested a return of the Geth, with previous crewmember Liara also expected to return (and potentially star) in the sequel. No release window has been shared.
The most recent additions to Xbox Game Pass have been strong, including It Takes Two, Unpacking, and Forza Horizon 5.
