Mass Effect: Legendary Edition: Storage, Update 1.01, Preload - new information about the start

Mass Effect

The activation of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition is imminent: The launch will take place on May 14th on consoles and PC. A few days before the release, additional details about the required storage space emerged. As reported by the Twitter channel "PlayStation Game Size", the base game occupies a little more than 87 gigabytes of storage space on the PS4 hard drive. In addition, there is update 1.01, which takes up an additional 13.3 gigabytes on the Sony console. The day-one patch reportedly contains further performance and graphics improvements.

All in all, European PS4 players will have to plan a download of 101 gigabytes if they buy the Mass Effect Legendary Edition (now € 69.99 / 53.99 €) as a digital version in PSN. For US users, the new edition is slightly smaller at around 80 gigabytes, which can probably be attributed to the individual language packages that are contained in the European version. Plan for similar memory sizes on Xbox and PC. Steam, for example, specifies a required hard drive space of 120 gigabytes.

So that you can start your adventure straight away on May 14th, the Mass Effect Legendary Edition can be downloaded in advance via preload. As "PlayStation Game Size" reports, the pre-downloads on PlayStation will be possible from May 12th. The game files are already available on Xbox: A download of around 87 gigabytes is required here. Most recently, technical details about the Mass Effect Legendary Edition on PC and consoles became known. To get in the mood for the release, Bioware is also distributing individual bonuses for fans.

The Week In Games: Mass Effect Is Back

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is out this week on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

I’m still playing Resident Evil Village, so I won’t be playing Mass Effect’s big remastered collection anytime soon. But I expect many people are going to be reminded that a lot of Mass Effect 1 is uh.. clunky. That game had the grenade button mapped to the back button on Xbox 360. It was a different era.
