New Shepard Customizations – With improved hair, makeup, eye color and skin tones you can create your Shepard in a unified character creator with all options available across the full trilogy, or choose to play as the iconic Femshep from Mass Efect 3 now available in all titles.
Gameplay Enhancements for the First Mass Effect Game – Enjoy improved aiming and weapons balance, sound effects, better Mako controls, input/controls, squad behavior, cover behavior, and gameplay cameras.
Visual Enhancements for the first Mass Effect Game – The game’s been given a full world-building pass including environmental art, VFX, level relighting.
Performance Mode Options – Supports ultra-high refresh rates on PC, and offers a choice between “Favorite Quality” for increased resolution or “Favor Framerate” to boost your FPS on consoles.
PC Updates – Enjoy a modernized PC experience across all three games with native controller and 21:9 widescreen support, user interface navigation improvements and DirectX 11 compatibility.
Sadly, the multiplayer portion of Mass Effect doesn’t seem to be getting a remaster/remake as well, though we’d love for one to be made.
