Mass Effect Legendary Edition Is Officially Out Today

Mass Effect Legendary Edition, the remastered version of BioWare's space epics, is finally out today across PC and consoles. The sci-fi trilogy has been given a fresh coat of paint, as well as support for 4K on consoles and HDR. 

The team at Electronic Arts and BioWare celebrated the launch of the Legendary Edition with a new trailer, highlighting key moments from the trilogy itself. The package includes all the DLC and all three games from the original, with umprovements being made to the experience thanks to a unified character creator across the three titles, improved VFX, textures and animations.

Those on console will be able to toggle between a quality and performance mode, seeing last gen target 4K30 on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X (and Xbox Series S), while targeting 1080p60 when toggling to favor framerate. Meanwhile, current gen consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X) will see targets of 60fps at 4K, with framerate modes targeting between 60 and 120 fps on the PS5 and Xbox Series X at 1440p respectively.

"Mass Effect Legendary Edition provides fans and new players with the ability to experience the incredible universe and dynamic cast of characters in Mass Effect with enhanced visuals like never before. Remastered character models, tens of thousands of up-ressed textures, shaders and VFX, updated lighting and improved dynamic shadows, volumetrics and depth-of-field combined add to a new level of immersion in the trilogy."

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is available across the PlayStation and Xbox family of consoles, as well as on PC using Steam, EA's Origin or EA Desktop app, as well as Steam.
