The Mass Effect Legendary Edition 1.02 file size is 9.69 GB on PlayStation 4 and is likely the same on other platforms.

The patch addresses several issues, including a game-breaking one connected to headsets on the Xbox Series X.

Other fixes include further texture improvements, bug fixes, and issues that meant the game didn’t track trophies.
