Gamers will be able to play their old saves in Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

Players will be able to import their old saves from Mass Effect 2 and 3 into the Legendary Collection (via GameSpot). On PC, the files can be transferred, though it only works for Mass Effect 2 and 3, and not the original. This is due to the fact that the first Mass Effect had bigger changes and improvements made than the other two games. 

In order to transfer the save files, gamers will have to go into their Documents folder on PC, and select BioWare. There they should see their save files for all of the developer's games in a row. They then select Mass Effect 2 or 3, and then select one of their older characters. Players then have to copy and paste the file into the corresponding folder under Legendary Edition. They should then be able to pick up where they left off and enjoy their old character with the enhancements that were made to the games. 

Last week EA revealed how Mass Effect legendary Edition will run on the various platforms that it has released on. PC gamers will be able to get up to 240 fps with a refresh rate of up to 240 Hz. PC players will be able to tweak several graphics options in order to finetune their preferred balance of graphics and performance. Console gamers will have two options when it comes to graphics: Favor Quality and Favor Framerate. Favor Quality will prioritize achieving the highest visual fidelity possible by running the game at lower framerates. Favor Framerate will prioritize the highest framerate possible by reducing some graphical features. You can see how the game will run on various consoles in both graphical options here

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
