Mass Effect Legendary Edition is finally out, which means that players can now guide a shinier version of Commander Shepard to save the galaxy in futuristic 4K resolution. The remaster's improvements extend beyond the visual side of things, but that hasn't quenched people's thirst for console commands and cheats.
While it's not the most complex RPG out there, Mass Effect Legendary Edition stays true to the systems of the original. If you've worked through the games as a Paragon but have a sudden change of heart and want to switch to Renegade, you'll need console commands and cheats to do it without replaying a good chunk of the story.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition Console Commands
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be "official" support for cheats in the remaster, as players have had a hard time figuring out how to bring up the in-game console. The lack of an elegant way of inputting commands hasn't, however, stopped modders from figuring out a way to make use of them.
The Easy Console Commands mod covers all three games, letting players enable a string of Mass Effect Legendary Edition console commands using the numpad keys. You can also find separate versions for ME1 and ME2, that assign one command to the function and numpad keys.
Using them, you'll be able to set your FOV to 90, treat yourself to some XP or additional resources, change your alignment, activate god mode, and more. These mods are likely based on the findings shared by Reddit user Tromador. If you've a knack for editing game files, you might want to go over their thread and tweak things to your liking.
It is, however, worth noting that using Mass Effect Legendary Edition cheats at the moment or editing game files yourself could break stuff in your game. That's why it's a good idea to make sure you backup both your saves and the Coalesced_INT.bin file before tweaking anything.
