BioWare rolled out a new update today for Mass Effect Legendary Edition. Among its changes is the promise of improved performance across a variety of PC hardware configurations. The changelog specifically calls out performance fixes for Vermire.

In addition to these performance gains, the patch also includes a number of game specific improvements. For instance, in the first game, BioWare lowered the volume on the Mass Relay load screens, so now your ears won't bleed any time you use them. The second game did some balancing on the amount of credits you can carry over from the first game. The third game includes a couple of smaller fixes.

The full changelog can be found below.
