Fans of the Mass Effect series have been loving the release of the remastered trilogy, Mass Effect Legendary Edition. However, like every new release nowadays, the game is suffering from several technical issues.

The developer has already released a major update last month that addressed some issues. Now, they are back with yet another important update. The June 7 Update improves the performance of all three games, brings some QoL changes, fixes animations, and resolves bugs.

After installing the update, you can now choose English as your audio language while setting a different language for subtitles. It’s a shame this feature wasn’t present at the launch.

Pre-rendered cutscenes are now back to the original brightness, which was made darker by the previous update. Eye animation of male characters in ME1 is improved and the intensity of fog on Illium is reduced in ME2.

Several bugs in Mass Effect 3: Citadel are now fixed. The update brought several other changes, which are mentioned below:

General
  • Resolved issues with unlocking some achievements/trophies, such as the Paramours or kill count trackers
  • Wireless headsets/devices no longer cause issues with the Xbox launcher
  • Improved PC performance across various hardware configurations, including on Virmire

    • Removed the dependency on the AVX instruction set in the launcher
  • Other minor calibrations and fixes, including some instances of crashing
