Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, weight revealed

It is no coincidence that games like Mass Effect: Legendary Edition are of some weight … literally, approaching the three-digit gigabyte

Your space travels will need more space, seen the weight in gigabytes which emerged for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. The remaster is out in a week, but it’s nothing vaguely ordinary. Conversely, the upgrades for the second and third episodes are already proving impressive by now, but it’s the new coat of paint applied to the first chapter that really leaves you speechless. This is a particularly ambitious remaster, from the Mako sections to the boss fights, passing through a myriad of improvements. We are almost to the level of a remake, but this could spell trouble for many of your storage media.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, the weight of those who take space

Now that Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is available for pre-load on Xbox One and Xbox Series X (and S), the weight of this return to origin has jumped out. As @ SnoopyG7 on Twitter noted, this is a pretty big download. We are talking about nothing less than 84,3 GB of space to which you will actually have to say goodbye. Not that the dimensions surprise us, but it is still a considerable figure. And if we want to touch the three digits, you will be happy to remember that the day one patch will ask you 11,8 GB free, for a total of 96.1 GB.

The game will arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 14, and will be playable via backward compatibility on PS5 and Xbox Series X and S. In the latter case, the game will also enjoy an additional boost to reach both a 4K resolution and 60 frames per second.
