    Good riddance, in case of Hudson at least. There is an unwritten rule in game dev. industry, that you should always finish the project you start working on.

    On August 7, 2014, Hudson left BioWare to pursue other projects.
    On May 18, 2015, Microsoft announced that Hudson had joined their video game production.
    On July 18, 2017, Hudson announced that he had returned to BioWare.
    On December 3, 2020, Hudson announced he was departing BioWare a second time.

    The preorder of the remaster went up. Should be out on May 15th. Seems like changes are mostly for the first game, which is understandable. Otherwise only higher res textures and some balance tweaks and it includes all DLCs. Not sure about the price tag though, it is €60. If the release is actually bug free, I might buy.

    Didn't know they had the actual trailer up until now, thank you very much sir for sharing this.

    This will be defin't in my 4-way sli projects in the future to come.

    What Api is it going to be running it on? DX11? If so, very good, I can finally Scale the hell out of ME3, I couldn't even get it to work awhile back ago.

    Bad thing about DX11, SGSSAA won't work, so overall image quality will be much greater on the DX9 counterpart, hopefully they will incorporate Some high quality AA for all three games.

    Thanks alot for sharing.

    EDIT:

    Did some looking up, Going to be DX11, Excellent, This will be a nice Project to work on in the future for me, thank god not DX12(No Offense/Can't scale worth crap on the stuff that I do).

    Eh, it seems that only visible difference are slightly better textures?
    As someone who owned all 3 games on Origin with all story DLCs (didn't give a diddly squat about guns/armors or skins) this seems like major ripoff.
    Especially since on steam at least there's 17% discount for ME3 owners. As someone who owns all ME games with DLCs on their own platform it doesn't seem to offer me any discount on origin web store.

    bra-vo EA.

    Some things are not visible in trailer:
    - 3 games in one (seamless)
    - same Shepard across whole game (plus enhanced character editor);
    - improved mechanics (shooting, cover, squad control, MAKO control) in ME1 part;
    - improved art and lightning...

    I am curious about cooldowns and about different loadout approach in all 3 games, about different skill trees in all 3 games.

    It's all nice but it's a package that i already mostly own and even within the parts i don't own it has to compete with mods in regards of texture upgrades.
    Rest of the tweaks and additions are surely not worth another 60 bucks for me.

    Unless they can offer existing owners a reasonable discount it seems like a really bad offer.
    For people who either played one or no ME games at all? Sure it seems to be a great value.

    So basically original ME games with community texture packs... Good job EA.

    Was kinda expected, wasn't it? Its not at all hard for me to imagine a scenario, where people would be up in arms and furious at BioWare/EA if they had made changes to the gameplay aspect et al, like; " They killed my nostalgia!!"

    The convenience of this remaster, having it all bundled up in one is a pretty sweet deal for me. I bought ME2 on a physical disk when it came out, and then bought the DLC via BioWares website and had to manually apply each dlc to the game.
    So having all 3 games digitally isn't all that bad in my case.

    I've had the first on Steam for a long time but never got around to playing it. This looks interesting.

    Not sure by what you mean "seamless" because from what Gamespot reported, there will be a game launcher that lets you pick which of the three games to play. So when you finish one game, you'll need to exit and restart the launcher to pick the next game.

    No. According to description they changed art, models and effects. And on ME1 they updated mechanics.

    PS Also "pack" means addon to original game.
