Mass Effect Legendary Edition is finally bringing a remaster of the classic RPG trilogy to PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. Fan have been waiting years, but now, with just one day to go, they’re more eager to play than ever. So, is there a way to get ME Legendary Edition early access? Here’s the need-to-know on how to play Mass Effect Legendary Edition early.
Is there Mass Effect Legendary Edition early access?
Depending on the timezone, some users will be able to play Mass Effect Legendary Edition earlier than others. ME Legendary Edition preloads are available on all platforms in every region right now. The remastered trilogy should unlock and become playable at midnight regional time on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
Although it is possible to change region and manipulate the timezone to play Mass Effect Legendary Edition early, users should avoid doing so. This practice violates the Terms of Service and could result in a profile suspension, or worse, a complete account ban. Ultimately, it isn’t worth the risk for just a few hours of ME Legendary Edition early access.
Of course, preloading Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a great way to play as soon as the game unlocks. This will save time and ensure that players get legitimate access as early as possible. Those with a digital pre-order can initiate the download right now, as confirmed by the official Mass Effect social media channels.
Preload is now available on all platforms!
For Xbox players, Smart Delivery allows for a smaller preload, with ME2 & ME3 able to be downloaded from the launcher at release. #MassEffect

The Mass Effect Legendary Edition file size is reportedly 93GB, though, thanks to Smart Delivery, Xbox users will receive a smaller preload. The original Mass Effect will be ready to go at release, with ME2 and ME3 then available via the Legendary Edition launcher.
Wondering what’s new in the Mass Effect Legendary Edition remaster? While there are tons of visual improvements, users also have to take the rough with the smooth. There are some camera angle alterations and missing downloadable content that players may take issue with.
Looking for something to play while waiting on the preload unlock? AC Valhalla’s Wrath of the Druids DLC is more digestible than the main game.
