BioWare folks seem to have done their job diligently with Mass Effect Legendary Edition as they announced it will run smoothly even on last-gen consoles, a polar opposite of what happened with Anthem.

While BioWare had some tough times when it comes to technical issues with Anthem and Mass Effect Andromeda launches, it appears they are trying to get Mass Effect Legendary Edition as polished as possible before kicking it off in about a week's time.

The team announced the expected performance targets on consoles, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms being able to run ME: Legendary Edition at 60 FPS in 1080p resolution. 

PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will yield up to 60 FPS at 1440p or at 30 FPS in 4K. Interestingly enough, Xbox Series S is rated in the same bracket as these two.

PS5 and Xbox Series X will be able to produce 120 FPS at 1080p while 4K will provide 60 FPS.

These numbers look pretty good for a game that is getting a graphics upgrade but BioWare did note that performance consistency will vary, based on your platform. In other words, it will not always be 120 FPS on current-gen consoles and last-gen will dip below 60 FPS on some occasions as well.

Meanwhile, PC players can expect up to 240 FPS , provided they have the necessary specs and a 240Hz monitor.
