PS4 games news: Three reasons why it’s going to be a great Christmas on PlayStation

PlayStation fans are in for something special this year, as a new leak hints at what’s to come from Electronic Arts.

According to a recent report at Gamereactor, EA is planning to release a trio of Mass Effect remasters this autumn.

Containing remastered versions of the first three games, the Mass Effect Trilogy bundle is likely to launch on PS4 and Xbox One.

The only downside is that fans will have to wait a little longer for the next Battlefield or Star Wars games.

“The rumoured remasters of the Mass Effect Trilogy are real, and the last update I got about it a few weeks ago still had the collection slated for this fall to take the place of the company’s usual blockbusters: Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront,” the post reads. 

EA is expected to announce the Mass Effect Trilogy during its upcoming summer live stream later this month.

The EA Play Live event will take place on June 18 in the US, and midnight on June 19 in the UK.

While all three games in the Mass Effect Trilogy are worth playing, the true highlight is Mass Effect 2.

With a Metacritic score of 96% on Xbox 360, Mass Effect 2 made its debut in January 2010.

“Something is abducting human colonies,” reads the official description.

“As Commander Shepard, you’ll assemble the galaxy’s deadliest team to find and destroy this terrifying threat. Intense shooter combat combines with a spectacular story in this hit action-RPG from BioWare.”

It’s likely any Mass Effect remaster would contain core games and DLC.

EA Play Live will also give fans a closer look at upcoming sports games like FIFA 21 and Madden NFL 21.

Madden NFL 21 was previously showcased at the Xbox Series X 20/20 event back in May.

Microsoft and EA confirmed that anybody who buys the Xbox One version of Madden NFL 21 can upgrade to the Series X version for free.

“During a recent episode of Inside Xbox, Super Bowl MVP and Madden NFL 20 cover athlete Patrick Mahomes unveiled that EA SPORTS Madden NFL 21 is coming to Xbox Series X, promising to make players feel next level when the next generation console launches.

“EA SPORTS and Microsoft also announced a program for players who purchase Madden NFL 21 on Xbox One to upgrade to Xbox Series X at no additional cost, ensuring that players will not have to purchase Madden NFL 21 twice.”
