EA’s second-highest concurrent player total, behind Apex Legends.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition seems to be going down well on Steam, where its launch racked up EA’s second-highest concurrent player total, behind Apex Legends.
The average user review rating is “Very Positive”, though there are a number of complaints over the game’s lack of an FOV slider outside of photo mode, and its insistence on launching Origin to launch the Legendary Edition launcher, to then launch a specific game.
Here in the UK, boxed copies of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition propelled the trilogy remaster to the top of this week’s physical all-format charts, bumping Resident Evil: Village.
Other the weekend, Legendary Edition players noticed BioWare had changed a character’s race, fixing a decade-old bug, and also replaced the terrible stock photo previously used to reveal Tali’s helmet-less face.
For more Mass Effect, I recently sat down with lead writer Mac Walters to discuss how BioWare began planning ME3 – read on for details of a cut Reaper boss, switched missions and more.
