Mass Effect Legendary Edition update fixes Xbox headset glitch


Mass Effect Legendary Edition update has been released to correct a number of issues, including one that meant players couldn’t launch the game on Xbox Series X using a wireless headset.

The issue still remains, in part. A full fix for the issue is coming soon. For now, players are advised to leave a headset connected (or disconnected) when using Legendary Edition‘s launcher.

Sadly, another issue in which the games’ Paramour II Achievement won’t unlock remains unsolved.

The full patch notes are below.


  • Fixed the main issue where the launcher would crash or become unresponsive on Xbox Series X when using a wireless headset
  • Known issue: This can still happen if you enable/disable a headset in the launcher. A future fix will resolve this issue.
  • Improved iris shaders for better interaction with light and ambient occlusion
  • Minor calibrations, fixes, and stability improvements
