You can also head over to the official site to see additional comparison videos and images with sliders. I will say that the Legendary Edition looks absolutely amazing. I think the biggest difference is the lighting and HUD, but what do you think?
In addition to the comparisons, I do want to share some sad news about the Legendary Edition. Game Informer recently spoke with game director Mac Walters who confirmed that the Pinnacle Station DLC for the first game in the series would not be included in the remaster. The reason is simply because all of the data has been corrupted and it would take too long for them to rebuild it.
When speaking with game director Mac Walters, he confirmed that the entire ordeal of trying to get the code was “an emotional roller coaster.” The team tried to contact everyone and anyone that had any connection to this DLC. When BioWare and EA contacted Demiurge, the studio responsible for this DLC, hope surged only to come crashing down once more when the backups for the code sent over contained almost all corrupted data – even vital links were missing.
Walters added that in order for Pinnacle to see a revival, it would have to be an entire remake; made from the ground up and entirely from scratch. “It would basically take us another full six months just to do this with most of the team we’ve got,” he told us. “I wish we could do it. Honestly, just because this is meant to be everything that the team ever created, brought together again – all the single-player content. And so, leaving it all on the cutting-room floor, it was heartbreaking.”
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is set to release on May 14 on PC (via Origin and Steam), PS4, and Xbox One with forwards compatibility with PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
