Mass Effect: Legendary Edition system requirements aren’t too demanding

Mass Effect Legendary Edition: all the new details, and everything we know

Ahead of its May release, Electronic Arts has issued the minimum and recommended system requirements for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. The good news is that you probably won’t need to upgrade to play it, though you will need 120GB spare. That isn’t unexpected: It includes all three games and their singleplayer DLC, with the exception of Mass Effect 1’s Pinnacle Station.

Back in 2012 you could run Mass Effect 3 at its best settings on a GeForce 9800 GT. That’s obviously no longer the case, but the recommended specs for the new edition won’t break the bank either: If you’re rocking anything between a GTX 760 and 1070, or a Radeon 7970/R9280X and Vega 56, you should be fine. 

It makes sense, because aside from some substantial gameplay changes to Mass Effect 1 (including a touching up of its gunplay and UI, to name two examples), the trilogy isn’t a thorough modern remake: they still run on Unreal Engine 3, they’re still the same games, albeit much prettier than they’ve ever been. You can read more about the finer details of the changes here.

Without further ado:
