Remakes, remasters and other new editions of video games are disrespectful to the original games, says editor Lukas Schmid in his column.

"It really has been an incredible journey to take another look at the stories, characters and iconic moments of the Mass Effect trilogy to improve the experience for the modern platforms while maintaining the atmosphere of the original," said Mac Walters. Project Director of Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Lead Writer of the original trilogy at BioWare. "Remastering a game is an incredibly time-consuming endeavor, not to mention three games with 100+ hours of gameplay, but we wanted to do it for our fans as well as a new generation of gamers who were entering the game for the first time Shepard's legendary story. "

The Mass Effect Legendary Edition will provide a modernized visual experience thanks to revised character models and tens of thousands of textures in higher resolution. Improvements to shaders and visual effects, lighting, dynamic shadows, volumetric elements and depth of field add additional immersion to the trilogy. The cutscenes have also been tweaked to make every moment of the story feel more intense.

The first Mass Effect now offers extensive optimizations of the game world with additional details and depth in locations such as Eden Prime, Ilos and Feros, which players will explore on their journey through the galaxy. In addition to updated interfaces and user interfaces, various changes have been made to improve ease of use in Mass Effect. In addition, combat and exploration have been modernized through improvements in aiming, troop control and behavior, Mako controls, and camera work.

The Mass Effect Legendary Edition offers character creation with unified options for all three games and is complemented by improved and expanded choices for hair, makeup and skin color. The iconic appearance of the female Shepard from Mass Effect 3 is available as a standard appearance for the female Shepard in the character creation of all three games and thus also ensures a uniform gaming experience for the trilogy.
