BioWare has confirmed that its highly anticipated collection of Mass Effect remasters, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, will include a new photo mode that allows fans to take snapshots of their favorite moments in the trilogy. The addition was confirmed yesterday by project director Mac Walters, who tweeted a black and white screenshot of fan-favorite Garrus Vakarian alongside various effects that Mass Effect fans will be able to play around with (e.g., tilt, focal lengths). Additional images shared by the official Mass Effect account today have also revealed saturation, brightness, contrast, and filter options.

ICYMI: #MassEffect Legendary Edition will have a Photo Mode! We can’t wait to see all your amazing screenshots. pic.twitter.com/G7Bim5NXP2
Photo mode will be available as an option from the pause screen mission computer, BioWare technical design director Brenon Holmes said – which suggests it’ll be available during gameplay at all times, but not during cut-scenes. […] Holmes later confirmed the mode would be accessible across all three Mass Effect trilogy games, and supported on all of the remaster’s various platforms.
