The original Mass Effect had the most changes in this remaster, with the UI and controls changed to match later titles more closely. Over 40 DLC packs are included in this remaster, with the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer and Pinnacle Station not being included.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5 and PS4 on May 14, 2021. BioWare is also working on a new Mass Effect game altogether but it's along ways off.

  • They said they weren't changing anything so I guess they are the same as the original.
