Mass Effect Legendary Edition Patch 1.03

A new update for Mass Effect Legendary Edition is available to download now on PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility). Patch 1.03 makes some mostly minor adjustments, but it all adds up.

Most notably, the update should fix an issue that was stopping players from popping specific, long-term Trophies — like the ones that track overall kill counts. What's more, some slightly distracting jank has been taken care of. The patch notes mention fixes for incorrect eye animations, which should stop Shepard and the gang from looking like they're possessed during certain cutscenes.

And finally, if you ever thought those mass relay jumps were way too loud, then you'll be happy to hear that this update lowers the volume.
