Okay, nobody panic, but it looks like it's finally happening. N7 Day falls on this weekend — Saturday the 7th November, to be clear — and fans have been hoping that BioWare will celebrate the annual event by finally announcing the long rumoured Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster (also known as Mass Effect Legendary Edition).
Adding fuel to the fire, trusted industry sources, such as Eurogamer's Tom Philips and The Verge's Taylor Lyles, are teasing an N7 Day announcement.
Both point to the official BioWare blog, which will apparently share something at 8am PT (that's 4pm UK time).
Is this the moment that we've all been waiting for? It has to be, right? Either the remastered trilogy is upon us, or this is someone's seriously twisted idea of a joke.
We'll keep you updated.

Will Mass Effect, as a series, ever be able to recover since Andromeda? I hope so, if they make a new one, that is.
A remaster will be boring. Now if they remake them or at least the first one, it could be more interesting.
My excitement for this is directly proportional to the effort put into the port/remaster/remake.
Now just remaster the Dead Space series please.
The Mass Effect Trilogy were my favorite games from that gen. I have been waiting for years for remakes, but I imagine these will be simple remasters.
@BearsEatBeets lets be honest. It will be minimal at best sadly
@Rob_230 Being EA I'm expecting just a resolution boost, at a stretch also fps. To be honest that would be enough for me to play it again but would love to see more done.
I don't think there were ever talks of them being remakes... They were always rumored to be remasters. I'm fine with that. Just make them less jankey in places (like the random head twisting, eyes rolling back in the head I experienced in 3 during cutscenes) and add some of the cut content back in. If they adjusted the ending that would be the biggest win for everyone, but again I'm in the minority that was fine with how the Extended Cut handled it.
Oh, and ME1 def needs an overhaul, I don't think it'll be a full on remake, prob more like a hybrid remake/remaster to make it play more like 2+3
Personally I don’t care for remasters of stuff I already own, but I can hope it comes out, does well, and we can get a new original Mass Effect.
I've still never played the first one, so I would be interested if they can seemlessly integrate all three games into one big one. I guess we'll see what the news is.
Finally happening huh? It feels like we've been joking about this for the last 5 years.
After the bare bone effort of the Hot Pursuit remaster I am not going to get my hopes up. It will be a remaster with no visual or gameplay upgrades except some better frame rates and resolution.
Andromeda remaster confirmed!
Yes! Can't wait to see David Anderson chin Ambassador Udina again for the 12th time.
@TG16_IS_BAE Andromeda rocks...there, I said it! Hated it at first, but it's hard to go back to the old games after playing it, honestly. I think more people will come to realize that once this remaster comes out.
Personally, I prefer the first game’s gameplay to 2 and 3. That’s a hugely unpopular and probably wrong opinion but I would replay the first one over the other two.
Seeing the high-res picture at the beginning of the article makes me imagine what the remastered games can (and hopefully will) look like.
I enjoyed the first 3 games, and i intended to replay them again in the near future.
If they announce the Remastered Trilogy tomorrow, even if it takes 6-9 more months to come out, i don't mind waiting for it.
Just do it justice, EA!
Jeff Grubb just tweeted this too, possible artwork.
If they've been put off until this late in the game, these better be some beastly next-gen optimised remasters.
Is there such thing as a trusted Mass Effect source?
@stinkyx I’m glad you like it. It wasn’t for me.
Another week, another mass effect remaster rumour. Sony should just get PS3 emulation with boost mode running on ps5 and be done with it.
@nessisonett I completely agree. I prefer the first game in the same way I prefer Fallout 3 and NV over 4. The later games may have improved general combat, but the overall experience and RPG mechanics are much stronger on the first games.
I decided to replay the ME games on PS3 in order to be ready for the remasters. I 100%'d ME1, but gave up on ME2 after the prologue, and didn't even get close to starting ME3 again.
@stinkyx I didn't play it for almost a year after it came out, with many patches, and I enjoyed it. Its too bad that EA corporate messed with them so much and didn't let them create the game that they wanted to. It would have been awesome.
@stinkyx it's probably the best one from a purely gameplay standpoint.
Hopefully they’ve changed very little and not messed em up.
@nessisonett me too
