Mass Effect: Legendary Edition System Requirements

We learned the system requirements for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, a remastered set of the Mass Effect trilogy that will offer refreshed visuals, a full set of DLC and numerous minor tweaks and changes to the gameplay.

Today, BioWare shared the first trailer of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, a remastered Mass Effect trilogy created for new and old fans of the series who want to experience the full adventure of Commander Shepard with all DLCs. Along with the release of the video on Origin, the official page of the game has also appeared, where we can find the game's system requirements on PC. Since we're dealing only with refreshed versions of hits from the past, we don't need the strongest PC, as was to be expected. A stronger computer will come in handy only when we want to play in full 4K and 60 fps+.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition system requirements


  1. OS: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  2. CPU (AMD): FX-8350 or equivalent
  3. CPU (Intel): Core i5 3570 or equivalent

  5. GPU (AMD): Radeon 7970 / R9280X or equivalent
  6. GPU (NVIDIA): GTX 760 or equivalent

Thanks to Origin we also learned the price of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition on PC - $54.99. Undoubtedly, this is not small money, considering that we are dealing with games that were released between 14 and 9 years ago, in which the changes are not as big as in the case of full remakes. What's more, it's to be expected that Electronic Arts will withdraw the original versions of Mass Effect from digital sale to encourage the purchase of new editions. This will not sit well with many fans and purists.

The entire Legendary Edition includes not only the main trilogy, but also all of the story expansions, additional characters and weapons (over 40 DLCs in total). The only thing missing is the once popular multiplayer module from Mass Effect 3. The set will be released on May 14, 2021.
