Mass Effect Legendary Edition Released

As noted on the EA Website, the Mass Effect Legendary Edition is now available for Windows and consoles, offering the chance to once again shepard your crew through the epic space opera trilogy. The PC edition is available on Origin and Steam. There is no launch discount or break for owners of the original versions of these games. Steam does feature an ME3 Owner Offer which gives a 17% discount to owners of Mass Effect 3, though this also includes a Mass Effect 3 N7 Digital Deluxe Edition upgrade which pushes the price past that of the Legendary Edition alone. Here's yesterday's Community Tribute Trailer and here's more on the improvements in the new edition:
One person is all that stands between humanity and the greatest threat it’s ever faced. Relive the legend of Commander Shepard in the highly acclaimed Mass Effect trilogy with the Mass Effect™ Legendary Edition. Includes single-player base content and over 40 DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 games, including promo weapons, armors and
packs — remastered and optimized for 4K Ultra HD.

Experience an amazingly rich and detailed universe where your decisions have profound consequences on the action and the outcome.

Never did get around to trying this. Maybe when this collection has a significant sale I'll finally give it a go....

The PC version is a travesty. It is going to require a lot of patching or some user mods.
In what way? I've read mostly good things so far.

I finished the first mission in ME1, at the Eden colony. You can feel some of the age, but the overall experience is positive. The graphics have certainly seen more love than just better textures, and some of the effects are clearly changed.

They're selling a few mods full price ( 80 CAD ).

And some scenes look WORSE than the originals.

Welp... Their mod is gonna need mods.

I bought it with Warhammer 3 awhile ago, it's a +100 GB install. I'll load it up tonight given the opportunity.

Not sure if I'll play the same or different - went with biotic charging shotgun. Maybe something soldier and tech?

I feel like they went the distance here. Combat revamp for ME1, controls fix for ME1, graphics pass on all of the games and includes all previous DLC in a single bundle. There is definitely $60 to $80 of value here to say the least. For anyone playing this for the first time they won't experience the third games shitty initial endings either. I picked it up, looking forward to it this weekend.

Oh man.. why don't i have more time for video games.... Mass effect series is only #2 behind the Witcher. I consider mass effect 1,2,3 to be some of the best video games ever made.

Really want to play this.

What? Yes they will. ...

I don't think so. In the original ending, Marauder Shields just kills you and ends the game. I hear he's been nerfed a bit.

What do the graphics really look like on say a PS4? Would they look as good as Fallout 4 or Horizon Zero Dawn? Or more like Skyrim (which on a PS4 looks like dinosaur ass)?

I never played these the first time around, and I'm interested in trying them out, but I'm too spoiled lately to play clunky looking old stuff.

What? Yes they will. The "fixed" endings were barely any different than the original. Bioware was publicly annoyed at all the pushback against the awful endings and they just slightly tweaked them just so they can say they listened.

EDIT: Though that isn't to say that the rest of the games aren't great and worth playing.

Yea it looks like they didn't just slap on hi-res textures and call it a day. Looks like a proper remaster. I don't know if I'll buy it, but if you haven't played the ME trilogy yet, this looks like a great opportunity to give it a go.

Agree with Verno 100%. This is going to be the definitive way to play the ME trilogy going forward (unless you *really* like butts(then again, there's a photo mode...)).

Remasters can be a low effort cash cows. Improve the graphics and resell the same trilogy from a decade ago especially one as popular as Mass Effect at full price for a single game and print money. Return on investment.
