Mass Effect Legendary Edition Comparison Showcases Updates to Shepard
While the Mass Effect Legendary Edition reveal trailer offered a look at a host of the many beloved characters from BioWare’s original trilogy, EA has offered a new better look at how the male and female versions of Commander Shepard have evolved since the original releases.
Check out the gallery below for a look at both baseline versions of Commander Shepard as they originally appeared, as well as how they now look in the Legendary Edition.

Alongside Mass Effect Legendary Edition’s May release date confirmation, BioWare and EA also confirmed that the standard Female Shepard players can choose from across all three games will be the iconic Mass Effect 3 version of the character. Of course, players can choose to customize their Shepard, and EA also confirmed the character creator options will work across all three games and includes an “improved and expanded selection of hair, makeup, and skin tone options.”
Ahead of its May 14 launch, be sure to read IGN’s first impressions of Mass Effect Legendary Edition and the changes BioWare has made, and be sure to read up on everything we’ve learned so far, including why there aren’t dedicated PS5 and Xbox Series X versions, how the collection is treating the extended cut ending of Mass Effect 3, and why some of Mass Effect 1’s DLC won’t be in the game.
The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is currently available for preorder.
