Bioware’s Edmonton & Montreal studio GM, Aaryn Flynn, has been canvasing for opinions on a Mass Effect trilogy re-release in a NeoGAF post.

Well, eventually. It took him a little while to get there:

Once he got everything working he started asking people what they wanted, if there was to be an upgraded collection of Commander Shepard’s adventures. Aaryn emphasises that this is just a “wish list,” and also reiterated there was “no news” about anything coming to new consoles in a tweet:

Here’s what he originally asked:

The thing I’d love to hear from people is what you’d like to have in such an experience. For me (personal opinion, and based on what people have told me many times before):

- 1080p

- 60 fps

- High res textures, especially on ME1

- Some shader improvements commensurate with newer GPUs

- All the DLC

- “Seamless experience” - the adventures flow into each other without having to go back to save import, menu screens, etc.

Agree / disagree? What else?

Bear in mind this is a “wish list” at this point...

He also went on to answer questions and clarify a few things. For example, he talked about a more natural way of introducing DLC within the story as you explore: “The ‘organic implementation’ is definitely what I have in mind. It should just all be there, as if it never wasn’t there (if that makes sense).”

He also played down any ideas of reworking later mechanics into earlier games: “The ‘ME3 combat mechanics in ME1’ comes up relatively often, but it’s not on my radar (again, speaking personally). 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.”

Anything you want to see? And don’t talk about the ending.

DISCUSSION

  • All games on PC without requiring Origin/EA account.
  • All games brought up to the same visual standard. Bloom, reflections, shadows, fog, texture quality, resolution, fps... I think they were kinda getting to that, but just wanted to say it the simplest way.
  • Much better gamepad control/support in ME1.
  • A redesign of Ashley Williams's appearance in ME3. She looked really bad in ME3.
