Mass Effect Legendary Edition: Photo mode revealed by BioWare

Mass Effect Legendary Edition

In mid-May, we will be able to get our hands on Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a remastered version of the first three chapters of the BioWare saga. The three games promise various graphical and playful novelties, with some optimizations that will make fans happy. We now also have the opportunity to see some details of the photo mode.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition's photo mode has been confirmed by Mac Walters, Project Director of the game, via Twitter. Responding to a user, Walters said the game will have a photo mode and explained that it hadn't been shown because they were still finishing the finishing touches. You can see the shared image below.

We don't have a chance to find out much from this single image, but overall it appears to be similar to many other photo modes from modern games. In the image shared on Twitter, we can see that it is possible to set the camera as desired, move it in position, rotate it and change the focus. The fact that the image is black and white also suggests that a number of filters are available to customize our Mass Effect Legendary Edition shots.

Photo mode is more and more popular with gamers and a great tool for developers: the presence of these tools in the game encourages you to share your creations online and consequently generates advertising for the game. Mass Effect Legendary Edition, we remind you, will not have any multiplayer modes or new story content.

Finally, we would like to point out that a comparison video is available showing the graphical improvements of Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition will add a photo mode to the sprawling space-faring RPG trilogy.

The news was announced by Mass Effect Legendary Edition project manager Mac Walters on April 15. When asked by a fan on Twitter whether the remastered trilogy would add in a photo mode, Walters replied with the tweet just below, showcasing a rather stoic shot of Garrus in black and white as an example.

It's welcome news for Mass Effect fans that they'll be able to show off all their comrades in a brand new photo mode next month. The photo mode is perfectly suited for the trilogy's graphical overhaul, which you can see an example of just below, where BioWare showcases the original and remastered trilogy side by side for some impressive glow-ups.

Just earlier this week, BioWare and publisher EA announced that Mass Effect Legendary Edition had gone gold. There's now less than a month to go until the remastered Mass Effect trilogy will be in our hands for real, when the final product releases on May 14 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, as well as PS5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X through backwards compatibility.

BioWare also spent some time last week outlining the finer gameplay changes of the remastered trilogy. Chiefly, the original Mass Effect's combat has been changed so your weapons are now on a cooldown timer instead of requiring thermal clips to reload, and elsewhere the aim-down-sight camera has been improved for better handling. In short, there's plenty of reasons why the original Mass Effect has been made more appealing to newcomers.
