BioWare has also revealed the PC system requirements for the ME Legendary Edition, and since it’s a PS4/Xbox One game, modern PC gamers shouldn’t have any problems running it on their systems.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition PC System Requirements – EZ to Run
|Specs||Minimum Requirements||Recommended Requirements|
|CPU||Intel Core i5 3570 or AMD FX-8350||Intel Core i7-7700 or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X|
|GPU||NVIDIA GTX 760, AMD Radeon 7970 / R9280X.||NVIDIA GTX 1070, AMD Radeon Vega 56.|
|GPU VRAM||2 GB||4 GB|
|RAM||8 GB||16 GB|
|Storage||120 GB||120 GB|
One Redditor reached out to the company to know what resolution is supposed to be set with the recommended specs, due to the ongoing GPU shortage. The answer may surprise you, as BioWare apparently targeted 4K resolution with their recommended specs.
“So I contacted EA support today and asked if the recommended PC requirements were for 4k gaming or no. I was informed with a yes so this means if you want to shoot for 1440p or 1080p. You do not need a GTX 1070 for it. This is great for people at the moment because with the GPU shortage, it’s hard to get a hold of a really good GPU like 1070. So hopefully this gave you a sigh of relief that you technically have a shot at running this at recommended.” – u/Setsunai04 on contacting EA Support regarding ME Legendary Edition on PC.
