An 11-minute piece comparing the first three parts of Mass Effect with their remastered counterparts from Mass Effect: Legendary Edition has been posted on the IGN YouTube channel. Most of the changes at the graphics level are subtle we will try to tell you about the most important of them.
Above all, there is much better lighting compared to the original versions of the games. This is seen, for example, in the first part during indoor research lamps illuminate certain places in a more realistic way.
Impressive and small details are added in the Mass Effect remaster. Dirty vehicle wheels, glass rooms instead of gray walls or even such trifles as carpets or cushions on the seats we pass.

New features in the revised version mass effect There will also be an interface (updated HUD) and a character creation wizard (including more hair colors and types and a slightly improved look of Shepard’s basic clothing). The female model of the protagonist has also changed. The creators even say that all female characters simply look better.
Players will also feel significant differences when they climb into the armored Mako Azik, who should now feel a lot of silence, like a snail. It bounces much less off the ground and its movements are much more stable. In addition, projectiles fired from it visibly affect the target’s hit, which was not necessarily the case in the original version of the game.
We will probably catch more such flavors in the next promotional materials. Mass Effect: Legendary edition will debut on May 14, 2021 on PC, PS4, PS5, XONE and XSX / S.
