LATEST - Community Tribute Video
Mass Effect has shared a heartwarming Community tribute that showcases some of the ways "The Epic Trilogy" has touched so many lives and brought so much joy and excitement to the world.
It is an important point to make, though. Video games are often much more than just video games to people. They're a way to find some escape from daily life, they are a way for people to explore who they truly are, and they can be important in presenting opportunities of representation for groups that are underrepresented in the media.
Mass Effect has helped people do this and now the Legendary Edition is bringing all of this and more to the next generation of consoles.
Welcome back, Commander Shephard.
Day One Patch
On May 14, you can expect another large update to clean up some of the performance and finish off the experience.
Although the 13 GB update may seem like a lot, it will be worth it in the long run. Without a multiplayer to consistently update, Mass Effect Legendary Edition will likely be fully patched and updated by release. Save room for its photo mode.
Legendary Edition File Size
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC and each version will reportedly have a slightly different file size. As this game doesn't technically have a native next-gen release, the file sizes for current-gen consoles will be the same on the next-gen platforms.
The Xbox One version of Mass Effect Legendary Edition is going to take up around 84GB of space.
As for the PlayStation 4 version, this will take up around 87GB. Both this version and the Xbox One version will have an additional 13GB Day One Patch that will take the file size for Mass Effect Legendary Edition up to 97GB and 101GB respectively.
The PC version of the title is the largest of all, reportedly clocking in at 120GB according to Steam.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition
This is the remaster we've been waiting for, really. Mass Effect Legendary Edition contains an updated version of Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 with all the additional content that was originally released. Well, other than the Pinnacle Station DLC for Mass Effect as that was reportedly corrupted.
The game is due to release on May 14th and features enhanced performance and graphics, a number of "legacy bug fixes", a complete rework of Mass Effect's combat and an all-important update to the MAKO's controls. That lava isn't going to cause you any more problems, Commander.
