Mass Effect Legendary Edition sold so well that it even surprised EA

Earlier this year, Electronic Arts and BioWare released Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a compilation that not only bundles the three games in the original Mass Effect trilogy together with (almost) all of their DLC, but also updated each game for modern platforms.

In its most recent round of financials, EA revealed that the success of Mass Effect Legendary Edition has even surpassed its own expectations for the compilation.

BioWare Anthem NEXT is no more, focus on existing franchises

BioWare Anthem NEXT is no more, focus on existing franchises

BioWare made a name for its self with its Dungeons & Dragons games but it did have a few original IPs of its own even back then. The game dev studio made a big bang with its new properties Dragon Age and Mass Effect but, after three major games each, doubts started to rise whether BioWare still had what it takes to do something completely new. If Anthem was supposed to be its answer, it wasn't a very good one, and the cancellation of its NEXT version will probably raise those doubts even higher.

Here’s why Mass Effect Legendary Edition won’t include the Pinnacle Station DLC

Electronic Arts and BioWare say there's more than 40 DLCs included in the compilation, but eagle-eyed readers will see that we didn't say "all of the DLC" in the preceding sentence - we said "most."

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II is finally coming to mobile

Like any large franchise, Star Wars has seen its name put on many products outside of the core trilogy of trilogies, from spin-off TV series like The Mandalorian to novels that have mostly been thrown out the window when Disney declared them to be non-canon. And, of course, there are computer games, from flight simulations to RPGs. Of the latter kind, perhaps Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords is one of the most popular and the current generation of gamers will no be able to play them anywhere thanks to a long-overdue mobile port.
