Early Mass Effect Mass Effect Legendary Edition Comparison Video Shows ‘Massive’ Improvement Over The Original Versions


An early Mass Effect Legendary Edition comparison video has surfaced online, comparing the upcoming remastered collection to the original versions of the trilogy.

Earlier this week, EA and Bioware finally revealed the release date for the highly-anticipated remastered Mass Effect collection for PC and consoles. Alongside this announcement, a quite stunning new trailer was released, showing off the enhanced collection remastered in 4K resolution. We were already impressed by the new trailer, but the differences between the original games and the Legendary Collection really become more clear when directly compared.
