Mass Effect Legendary Edition Receives Performance Patch for All Three Titles

EA has launched a patch for the Bioware-developed sci-fi RPG Mass Effect Legendary Edition, available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The patch adds quality-of-life and performance updates across all three titles. Further, there are improvements added to the general systems that limit glitches and controller issues.

The full release is as follows:

General

  • English spoken dialogue can now be selected separately from subtitle language
  • Resolved issues with unlocking some achievements/trophies, such as the Paramours or kill count trackers
  • Corrected pre-rendered cutscenes that were darker than intended after the previous update
  • Wireless headsets/devices no longer cause issues with the Xbox launcher
  • Improved PC performance across various hardware configurations, including on Virmire
  • Fixed an issue on PC where non-standard characters in the operating system’s username would prevent the game from launching
  • Removed the dependency on the AVX instruction set in the launcher
  • Other minor calibrations and fixes, including some instances of crashing

Mass Effect

  • Reduced the max credits that can be carried from Mass Effect to Mass Effect 2 down to 100k for a more balanced early-game progression
