Mass Effect Legendary Edition PS5, Xbox Series X, And PC Performance Details Revealed

EA has recently shared details regarding Mass Effect Legendary Edition PS5 and Xbox Series X (and S) framerates and what to expect. Whether you’re returning to the Normandy once more or joining the fight against the Reapers for the first time, the upcoming Mass Effect experience is sure to be Legendary. 

Being a remaster, the changes to the original trilogy aren’t to the level of a remake, but that doesn’t mean that what has been tweaked doesn’t make a huge impact. With all of the DLC included, previous long-standing glitches finally patched, and more, players can expect a refined experience from a franchise that has made long-lasting waves in the gaming community. But how does it run? 

For console players, there are two gameplay modes that players can toggle between, as confirmed by EA: Favor Quality or Favor Frame Rate: 

  • Favor Quality prioritizes achieving the highest visual fidelity possible in exchange for a lower target framerate.
  • Favor Framerate prioritizes the highest framerate possible by scaling native resolution and reducing some graphical features.
