We went through the Mass Effect Legendary Edition Trailer and matched as many shots as possible with the original games.
It’s been nearly a decade and a half since the original Mass Effect was released, and while it was visually impressive at the time, like a lot of older games, it’s pretty handily outclassed by modern graphics. The newly announced Mass Effect Legendary Edition brings the original Mass Effect trilogy into the modern era–and a lot of that is updating the game’s look to bring it in line with current games and to unify the visuals between each of the trilogy’s entries.
Video producer Jean-Luc Seipke has painstakingly analyzed the shots found in the trailer for the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, then dug through the PC versions of the Mass Effect games for their corresponding moments. Check out the video above, where he compares the originals and the Legendary Editions point-by-point to show you just how much BioWare has improved the graphics of the original games.
