Mass Effect Legendary Edition Supports Up To 120 FPS on Consoles


With just over a week left to go until its May 14th launch, it wouldn’t be false to say that the hype is real for Mass Effect Legendary Edition. One of the biggest new IPs of the Xbox 360 generation, we loved the games so much that Mass Effect 2 was our favourite game of the last decade. Now, with only a few questions left unanswered, BioWare have revealed what we can expect from Mass Effect Legendary Edition in therms of FPS.

There’s a pretty wide range overall, with Mass Effect Legendary Edition supporting between 30 and 120 FPS on consoles and up to 240 on PC. On consoles, that is split across different modes. Both current generation consoles support up to 60 FPS, with the Series X also having support for 120 FPS in the framerate mode. Last generation consoles and the Series S will instead hit up 30 FPS in quality mode and up to 60 FPS in the framerate mode. What this means is that in all instances you can get 60 FPS if you want, but it will be at the cost of visual effects and resolution. You can check out the image below which shows the full lineup of console framerate and resolution targets.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition releases on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 14th, and is forwards compatible with current generation consoles. For more information, check the official website.
