Almost three weeks after its release, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition rolled out a big patch today on its servers. In the program, adjustments concerning the subtitles as well as corrections were made.

Released on May 14, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition welcomes its first big patch today (between 8 and 13 GB depending on the media). It is Electronic Arts, its publisher, who published the notes on its official website and on the Steam page of the title.

This update allows, among other things, to play in the original version with French subtitles since it is now possible to choose the language of the dialogues regardless of the subtitle language.

We can also note the correction of a problem which prevented players from reaching the maximum level in Mass Effect, or the reduction of transferable credits between the first opus and Mass Effect 2 for “to balance” progression.

Full list of patch changes:


  • The choice of dialogues in English is now independent of the choice of language for the subtitles.
  • Fixed issues in unlocking some Achievements / Trophies, including Love or those based on the number of kills.
  • Fixed precomputed cutscenes darker than intended after the previous update.
  • Wireless headsets / devices no longer cause issues with the Xbox startup program.
  • Improved PC performance related to various hardware configurations, including on the planet Virmire.
  • Fixed an issue on PC that prevented the game from launching if the operating system username * contained non-standard characters.
  • Removed dependency on AVX instruction set in startup program.
  • Other minor calibrations and fixes, including crashes.
