New Mass Effect Legendary Edition Patch Addresses Launcher, Stability Issues

Commander Shepard and friends have never looked better thanks to the newly released Mass Effect Legendary Edition. As with most new games, though, the trilogy has a few wrinkles that need to be ironed out now that it’s been in player’s hands for a few days. BioWare seems all too happy to oblige, with the developer releasing a brand new patch to resolve a few issues under the hood.

BioWare took to its EA Mass Effect site to reveal the full patch notes for the 17 May Update. Now live across all platforms, the patch addresses a few bugs and stability issues that have cropped up across the trilogy of titles. A launcher crash issue has also been resolved, as have some achievements/trophies problems. Full patch notes below:

General

  • Fixed the main issue where the launcher would crash or become unresponsive on Xbox Series X when using a wireless headset
    • Known issue: This can still happen if you enable/disable a headset in the launcher. A future fix will resolve this issue.
  • Improved iris shaders for better interaction with light and ambient occlusion
  • Minor calibrations, fixes, and stability improvements

Mass Effect

  • Improved terrain textures
  • Fixed an issue where kills for achievements/trophies weren’t tracking correctly

  • Resolved an issue where the character code would sometimes not display in the squad menu
  • Improvements to pre-rendered cutscenes to reduce occasional artifacts

Mass Effect 2

  • Improved lighting and shadows in some cinematics
  • Minor visual, rendering, and VFX improvements on some levels
  • Resolved minor text issues with achievements
