Mass Effect: Legendary Edition Will Have A Photo Mode

So none of us are actually finishing this trilogy--we'll be too busy taking photos every other second.


Looks like we'll not only have enhanced graphics for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, but we'll be able to capture our favorite moments from the remaster too, as the collection is launching with a photo mode feature.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition project director Mac Walters tweeted that the upcoming remaster will have a photo mode. "If you love taking photos (and you love Mass Effect), you can thank [technical design director Brenon Holmes]--photo mode was his passion project," Walters said in a follow-up tweet.

Though Walters did not go into detail about everything included in the photo mode, you can see a few of the settings in the tweet embedded above. Looks like you'll be able to adjust the camera mode, including a "Free" setting where you'll likely be able to freely move the camera around the current space.

Additionally, you can adjust the degree of the camera's tilt and focal length. Given that the picture in the tweet is in black and white, it's likely safe to assume you can adjust the color of the image as well.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition will launch for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on May 14. The game will also be playable on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 via backwards compatibility. The collection adds more than enhanced graphics and character models to the trilogy of games, it also makes quality-of-life improvements to the original Mass Effect's gameplay to better hold up by modern day standards.
