It does have some improvement to framerates. But that's it.

Why Mass Effect Legendary Edition Won't Come to PS5 and Xbox Series X

On the other hand, however, here's the performance specs for all systems :

Mass Effect Legendary Edition Confirms 120fps on Xbox Series X and 60fps on PS5

Well, there you go. I’m sure significant upgrade from One or 360 or whatever console on. They even say tweaks in gameplay to make better. And video says remastered graphics. Better looking character models. How is this not a remaster, ultimate edition?

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

I wonder if we will ever get an explanation why the Series X can do 120 but the PS5 can only do 60. Basically the same machine.

Favoritism? Was this original an Xbox only franchise once?

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

I'm always wanted to get into these games but never got around to them. I do remember though that people were massively disappointed with Mass Effect 3's ending. I don't want to dive into these games if I'm going to be disappointed by the way it ends. For those who've played it, was the criticism exaggerated? Are they worth playing?

The first game was a timed exclusive to the 360. 2 and 3 weren't.

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

I thought IGN's take was important when we discuss early reviews of this game :

Where's IGN's Mass Effect: Legendary Edition Review?

The review codes only came out 2 days ago and it hasn't been enough time to fully play it yet. I'm sure it's great, and I am sure it's still kinda dated by modern standards.

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

fuck, this seems like just a great trilogy. i am getting it, but damn i won't have that much time to invest. would easily take me over 100hrs all together and easily over a year. i don't think i can play one long game that long. but, i want to...

It's three long games. You can easily take a break, especially between games.

i know 3 separate games. but, one story and i don't want to not finish a story if it's out. like watching LoTR series. if all 3 (i mean a year later is fine) are out i would watch back to back to back to see where it goes and ends. ME2 is there and then ME3, simultaneously, with this collection. knowing there is a definitive end i would be depriving myself of, what i am sure, is an expansive, incredible story that is already complete.

plus, i'm in the midst of 2 games that give me the urge with RE8 and Outriders. both i want to play and may switch off, which i never do. usually play and finish one at a time, but both have given me the bug and tears me as to which to play...

Is it a definitive end though with another game coming?

It's weird that still every review, save maybe one, is a foreign one and almost all are in a foreign language. I am sure the game is fine, but the review copies came out too late to review before release.

This video is pretty informative though.

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

Man the preorder bonus exclusive Steelbook from Best Buy is NICE!

As you can see in the close up here, it's BOTH glossy and matte.


The only bummer is that the game comes with two disc's and the Steelbook only holds one. I think that FF VII Remake was the same way. I will just keep the data disc in storage in the original case.

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

Why would they make a SteelBook for a 2 disc set that doesn’t hold the second disc? That seems illogical. I mean hell they can fit 6 is a regular size case.

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

They don't have that special spine where you can click in a flap for a second disc. Maybe you can fit two disc's on the Central hub but I couldn't get the second one to click into place

Just doesn’t seem particularly smart on a manufacturing standpoint.

Re: Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered 2021

So this is really weird : there are dozens of Achievements for the XO version of this game but on the PS4 there are only 11 Trophies for the whole Trilogy Though it does have three Platinum trophies - - that will take a hell of a long time to obtain.

Those are just new trophies that are exclusive to the Legendary Edition. None of those are tied to the Plats.

There are 35 Trophies for Mass Effect, 45 Trophies for Mass Effect 2, and 39 Trophies for Mass Effect 3.
