Mass Effect Legendary Edition PC requirements – minimum and recommended specs

Can you run it?

It has been a long wait for the Mass Effect remasters that many of us hoped would come, and with Mass Effect Legendary Edition on the horizon, people are curious is they will be able to run it well, or if they will need an upgrade.

The good news is that the system requirements for the Mass Effect Legendary Edition are decidedly friendly, despite the many visual upgrades that have been made to the games.

You know that things are going to be okay when the recommended specs for the game look more like the minimum specs for modern action games. The big standout here is the 120 GB of space that you will need to install this monster. It would seem that all three games will be installing together, and you will not be able to install them one at a time as you play them.

Other than that, everything is very respectable, and should well within the reach of most gamers. For now, it is best to assume that the recommended specs will get you a smooth 60 FPS at 1080, and anyone want to go over that will need a bit more beef.
