Mass Effect Legendary Edition update fixes Xbox headset bug

So strange.

A new Mass Effect Legendary Edition update has corrected a number of issues, including one that meant players couldn’t launch the game on Xbox Series X using a wireless headset.

No, really.

The issue still remains, in part — it’s advised that players leave a headset connected (or disconnected) when using Legendary Edition‘s launcher. A proper fix for the strange issue is coming soon.

Sadly, an issue we picked up last night — in which the games’ Paramour II Achievement won’t unlock — remains untouched.

Full patch notes are below.

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.
  • Improved iris shaders for better interaction with light and ambient occlusion
  • Minor calibrations, fixes, and stability improvements

Mass Effect

  • Improved terrain textures
  • Fixed an issue where kills for achievements/trophies weren’t tracking correctly

Mass Effect & Mass Effect 2

  • Resolved an issue where the character code would sometimes not display in the squad menu
  • Improvements to pre-rendered cutscenes to reduce occasional artifacts

Mass Effect 2

  • Improved lighting and shadows in some cinematics
  • Minor visual, rendering, and VFX improvements on some levels
  • Resolved minor text issues with achievements

Mass Effect 3

  • Fixed an issue where kills for achievements/trophies weren’t tracking correctly

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is currently available on Windows PC via EA Play and Steam alongside Xbox One and PS4 (also compatible on Xbox Series S & X and PS5). We reviewed the trilogy here.
