With the release of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition just over a month away, EA has revealed some new details.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is a remastered version of the original Mass Effect Trilogy (not you, Andromeda) and includes a whole range of tweaks. You can find the full details on publisher EA’s site, but for now, here are some of the highlights:
- You can now sprint out of combat.
- Combat has been tweaked to combine the best from all three games.
- You can flag items you don’t want as junk and convert them into omni-gel.
- You can command squad mates individually in Mass Effect 1, something you could only previously do in 2 and 3.
- You now have more cover options in combat.
- The Mako isn’t terrible.
- The Mass Effect: Genesis interactive comics are now in the game so you can make plot choices for Mass Effect 2 and 3 without having played the previous game.
- Mass Effect 3’s Galaxy at War is more dependent on previous games than the mobile content that used to be available.
There are a host of other tweaks and bug fixes as well, so Mass Effect: Legendary Edition should be the best way to experience the trilogy. We did hope that we’d get them blended together seamlessly into one massive game but that was never really going to happen.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, is set to arrive on Playstation, Xbox and PC this May 14th.
