There are also several changes coming to all three games. One of them is that the trilogy now includes a unified character creator, so your Commander Shepard will look consistent throughout his mission against the Reapers. BioWare has also integrated DLC weapons and armor so that you earn them as you play through the story instead of unlocking them as soon as you start any of the games. It should be noted, one thing remasters will not add same sex romances.

Finally, the studio reworked the “Galaxy at War” system from Mass effect 3. It was the mechanism that played an important role in the end of the final match. Previously, you had to download a companion app and participate in multiplayer to get the best possible conclusion from the trilogy. However, with none of those features making the jump to the remaster, BioWare has changed the system to instead take into account the actions you take in all three games. In short, the more content you complete, the more likely you are to get the “ best ” ending.
