Mass Effect Legendary Edition Day 1 Patch Details and Size

We've learned what patch 01.01 to Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will offer. The update will be released on the game's release date.

PATCH 01.01 INCLUDES:
  1. Improved engine performance and stability;
  2. Improved ambient lighting and occlusion;
  3. Fixed gameplay issues.

We're still two weeks away from the release of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, a set of remastered versions of three SF RPGs from BioWare. However, we've already found out what the so-called Day 1 patch, i.e. the update that will launch along with the game, will offer.

This information appeared online because the patch has already been uploaded to the PlayStation Store servers. Its size on PS4 will be 11.8 GB and it will bear the number 01.01. No one will be surprised that the patch will focus mainly on improvements in technical aspects. We are to receive improved performance, and the engine will freeze less often. Such visuals elements as lighting and ambient occlusion effects will be nicer. In addition, the patch will remove the deficiencies related to the gameplay.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition has gone gold on April 10, this year. However, the developers' work did not end there. They spent the following weeks on improving the project and preparing patch 01.01.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is coming to PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. PS5 and Xbox Series X/S owners will play the game thanks to backward compatibility. The release will take place on May 14, this year, simultaneously on all hardware platforms.

The collection looks promising. A few weeks ago a video was published offering a visual comparison between Mass Effect: Legendary Edition and the original version of the trilogy and the changes are substantial. Additionally, the photo mode will make the game more pleasant in general.
