Mass Effect: Legendary Edition Finally Discovers Quieter Mass Relay Jumps

For many years Mass Effect fans asked BioWare for quieter mass relay jumps and I, for one, personally know some people who stopped playing the game because of the deafening mass relay jump sounds (I did not). After about a decade, BioWare thought it was a good idea to fix this issue with its June 7 update. Now we can all enjoy peaceful rides through the mass relays. Isn’t it the best when you travel without a loud noise coming from the actual mass relay that you are going into?

Below you may find the complete list of fixes and improvements on all platforms:


  • English spoken dialogue can now be selected separately from subtitle language
  • Resolved issues with unlocking some achievements/trophies, such as the Paramours or kill count trackers
  • Corrected pre-rendered cutscenes that were darker than intended after the previous update
  • Wireless headsets/devices no longer cause issues with the Xbox launcher
  • Improved PC performance across various hardware configurations, including on Virmire
  • Fixed an issue on PC where non-standard characters in the operating system’s username would prevent the game from launching
  • Removed the dependency on the AVX instruction set in the launcher
  • Other minor calibrations and fixes, including some instances of crashing
