Mass Effect Legendary Edition Day One Update Improves Visuals and Performance
Mass Effect Legendary Edition will be out on May 14. This trilogy brings critically-acclaimed games to modern platforms and already has an update.
Ahead of the launch of the game, there is a day one patch available to download on the PlayStation servers. This patch also comes with a changelog that mentions improvements related to the ambient occlusion, lighting, and performance.
The download size of this update is roughly 11.8 GB but we are unsure if this is just the patch size or if this has additional game files. From the PC system requirements, we do know that the minimum hard disk space needed for the game on PC is roughly 120 GB. The console version still doesn’t have file size for now but don’t expect anything less than 50 GB for the final game.
