Submit

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is already available for pre-order on Steam and the store page also lists the PC system requirements for the trilogy of remasters.

Considering that the game didn't actually get an upgrade to Unreal Engine 4, they seem a bit high, particularly the CPU recommendations.

The game also comes with almost all DLCs, save for Mass Effect 1's Pinnacle Station, apparently due to corrupted data.
