Mass Effect: Legendary Edition represents a chance for BioWare to retroactively fix things with Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 that the studio didn’t account for when first developing those games. As we learned while attending a presentation for the remaster, that includes the depiction of female Commander Shepard.
“We definitely wanted to make sure that we were able to bring her back as an option in the trilogy,” environment & character artist Kevin Meek said. “In fact, that was one of the very first things we did.”
Meek cites female Shepard as one of the few characters in Mass Effect 3 who stands to use some improvements in Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. “We’ve done another pass on her where we’ve done everything from slightly modifying some larger forms of her face or adding some medium and fine details like wrinkles and pores and specular breakup,” he said.
