The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is set to release on May 14th this year. The Legendary Edition contains content from the Mass Effect Trilogy as well as the DLC content from the second and third sequel.
This means that you will be able to experience everything that the game has to offer before Mass Effect: Andromeda. However, does your PC make the cut for the 4K full HD game? Read on to find out!
Mass Effect Legendary Edition has a whole new array of textures and colors added to it as well as better graphics. However, the new developer teams have said that “certain” scenes that might have been unfit for younger audiences have been cut out as well. These scenes mainly panned out to one of the characters posterior just long enough to make it weird. Funnily enough, this has been the source of most of the uproar caused by the game.
Here are the minimum PC specs required to run the game:
- CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 or an AMD FX-8350.
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 760 or AMD Radeon 790/ RX 290X.
- RAM: At least 8 GB of RAM.
- Storage Space: At least 120 GB.
The common requirements between all the PC specs is a 64-bit Windows 10 OS.
Here are the recommended PC spec requirements:
- CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 or an AMD Ryzen 3700X.
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070 or a Radeon Vega 56 with 4GB of VRAM.
- RAM: 16 GB.
- Storage Space: 120 GB.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition has many more upgrades graphically as compared to its outdated prequels. One of the many is the ambient lighting as well as realistic scenery and real-time surface reflections.
One might think that this makes the game more difficult to run, and it does. However, due to the game being really old, it should be fairly optimized and easy to run for most modern-day systems. Overall, the game should be relatively easy to just run at minimum graphics settings. Running on higher settings, however, might be a completely different beast.
