Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster: BioWare wants your ideas

BioWare’s Aaryn Flynn has taken to NeoGAF to generate fan feedback on the much-requested Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster.

The company is already well aware of how popular a potential remaster of Commander Shepard’s epic sci-fi adventures is, and Flynn revealed a number of ideas that are already brewing at BioWare HQ.

Chief among the features of a Mass Effect Remaster is the option of 1080p/60fps, enhanced textures, shader improvements, plus all DLC available out of the box. 

“The seamless adventure would be very interesting. You’d have to integrate some cut scenes to tie it together I feel as the time between games was almost like the time elapsed in game, all in all that’s a great list though, DLC is a definite must!” said Flynn.

“I know it’d be a great addition for most of us here if the character creator was tweaked to ensure more customisation as the DA:I has given us a taste of the good life.”

Elsewhere, he wasn’t too keen on the idea of tweaking the original Mass Effect’s combat to ensure it plays similar to its more action-focused sequels. 

“ME3 combat mechanics in ME1′ comes up relatively often, but it’s not on my radar (again, speaking personally),” he said. “First it would be a helluva lot of work. Second, I hate the idea of us being accused of ‘retconning’ ME1.

“Third (and I bet everyone on NeoGAF knows this), there are those who prefer ME1… So given that all that, it doesn’t feel like the right thing to do.

As for those of you hoping for a surprise announcement for the remastered trilogy this week—it’s N7 Day, after all—Flynn has some bad news for you all: it’s not happening.

Despite an official announcement remaining elusive, this hasn’t stopped the trilogy popping up on various retailers earlier this year, including this listing of the PlayStation 4 release. Furthermore, we also know BioWare has expressed interest in remastering the series.
