Finally, the Paragon & Renegade Bookends set is ideal for anyone who wants to display physical copies of the various Mass Effect comics. Each bookend measures 8.5-inches tall and 4.25-inches wide. The bookend set is limited to 1000 units and is priced at $99.99 and will ship at some point in Summer 2021.
All three collectibles are available to pre-order now on the Dark Horse Direct website.
In other Mass Effect/N7 Day news, BioWare has finally confirmed a remaster of the original Mass Effect Trilogy. Mass Effect Legendary Edition is slated for release in Spring 2021.
VP, Studio GM of BioWare Casey Hudson said that the team at BioWare’s goal “was not to remake or reimagine the original games, but to modernize the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form.”
Hudson also confirmed “a veteran team has been hard at work envisioning the next chapter of the Mass Effect universe.” That project is still in its early stages, but hopefully we’ll learn more next year.
