Looking at the side-by-side comparison, you can plainly see some of the improvements made to the environment, characters, and visual effects.

You can expect improved material and particle effects, better skin rendering, and more realistic surface response. All textures have been enhanced or remade, 3D models are more detailed, eye shader improvements have been made, and cut-scenes and worlds have been re-lit.

The team also made global post-effect improvements as well as plenty of gameplay changes.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition releases on May 14 for Origin, Steam, PS4, and Xbox One with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X/S and PS5.
