A new patch is available now for BioWare’s Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, providing “minor” calibrations, fixes and stability improvements as a whole. The developer noted an issue where the launcher could become unresponsive on Xbox Series X with a wireless headset. While it’s been fixed, enabling or disabling a headset can still cause it but an upcoming fix should clear it up.

Other improvements and fixes are on a game-by-game basis. Mass Effect gets improved terrain textures and a fix for an issue that caused Achievement/Trophies to not track kills properly. Mass Effect 2 receives improved lighting and shadows for some cinematics along with improvements to visuals, rendering and VFX on some levels. Both titles have received improvements to pre-rendered cutscenes to reduce the occasional artifact.

Check out the full patch notes here for more details. Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is currently available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Along with debuting in the top spot at UK retail, it also had the best launch for a BioWare title on Steam.

UPDATE NOTES:

General

  • Fixed the main issue where the launcher would crash or become unresponsive on Xbox Series X when using a wireless headset. Known issue: This can still happen if you enable/disable a headset in the launcher. A future fix will resolve this issue.

  • Minor calibrations, fixes, and stability improvements
