Game director Mac Walters has confirmed that Mass Effect Legendary Edition will have a Photo Mode. That’s not us taking 5,000 screenshots of Garrus, that would be silly.
Walters took to his Twitter to confirm the Photo Mode addition in response to a question from an interested player. Given how strongly the community feels about a certain former C-SEC operative, he chose well, selecting an image of our favorite Turian in front of the Mako:

Photo Modes in games have been becoming increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. With so many stunning adventures out there and open worlds to explore, being able to capture those moments for ourselves long after the end credits roll is incredible. The Mass Effect trilogy itself has some phenomenal planets, so being able to tinker with various photo options is going to be a real treat.
Personally, one of my favorite locations to take snapshots of during my time with the original trilogy was both on Omega (especially during a particular DLC with Aria in Mass Effect 3) and during the Shadowbroker DLC. To be able to not only capture those moments with an actual Photo Mode but to also be able to customize it has me incredibly excited.
As part of our cover story last month, we went all-in when learning about what went into the Mass Effect Legendary Edition. From Mako tweaks to character improvements, there is a lot to look forward to for returning players. For newcomers to the trilogy’s adventures, the ability to play all three games as they are meant to be played (thanks to the included DLC) is an exciting first step into a fandom that continues to be passionate to this day.
