Mass Effect Legendary Edition May 17 Update Fixes a couple of issues

It seems that the persons responsible for the backend difficulties have found a couple of issues that have been present in Mass Effect Legendary Edition since its launch. An update was mandatory to be deployed to alleviate those issues, as BioWare has done the same. With today’s Mass Effect Legendary Edition May 17 update, numerous changes will contribute to much smoother gameplay.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition offers all of the video games in the Mass Effect trilogy. Those are Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3. BioWare has been working on it for a long period. According to many, the visuals are still far away from completion and don’t bring a complete product’s vibe.

Some of the issues addressed with today’s update are linearly connected to the story and gameplay. All of the games, ME1, ME2, ME3, have received at least one fix. Faulty achievement/trophies tracking, performance fixes such as improved shaders, crash issues, improvement of terrain textures, and lots of other parts are no longer present thanks to the latest update.


  • 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
