Mass Effect Legendary Edition is going to be the latest game to join EA Play later this week. The PlayStation 4 trilogy will be available for subscribers to play on both PS4 and PS5 through backwards compatibility. There’s also some new rewards for subscribers to claim throughout the month.
When is Mass Effect Legendary Edition Coming to EA Play?
Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be added to EA Play on January 6. The Legendary Edition includes all of the single-player content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 with the exception of the Pinnacle Station DLC from Mass Effect because of the source code being corrupted. The trilogy also includes the Extended Cut ending as the default ending. All three games have been remastered with graphics optimised for 4K Ultra HD with HDR, while Mass Effect also received gameplay enhancements to bring it more in line with the other two titles.
As well as the new game, there have been new rewards added for players to claim from January 1. The “FUT Hero Tim Cahill Tifo Set” is available for FIFA 22 players, the “Cap’em Weapon Charm” can be claimed in Battlefield 2042, and the “Chel Heritage Set” is available for NHL 22. All of these will be removed from the rewards section on January 31. FIFA 22 players can also claim the “WWWesh Studio Apparel and Volta Coins” until February 3, while Madden NFL 22 players have just a few more days to claim the “Zero Chill Pack” for Ultimate Team before it disappears on January 12.
In other news, former Call of Duty developer Robert Bowling insists the COD franchise needs “revitalization” rather than the current strategy of annual releases, although Activision is unlikely to take heed. Elsewhere, DriveClub director Paul Rustchynsky confirmed he isn’t making DriveClub 2 or a successor to MotorStorm. He will announce a new non-racing game this year, however.
