Mass Effect Legendary Edition Community Patch 1.3 released & detailed

The Mass Effect Community Patch Team has released a brand new update for the first Mass Effect game of the Legendary Edition. This unofficial/community patch aims to fix and resolve numerous issues that plagued the remaster (and that Bioware hasn’t addressed yet).

Community Patch 1.3 allows players to toggle helmets when accessing the Squad screen using the hotkey. Additionally, it fixes a faulty “Check_Player_Biotic” conditional, restoring several lines across the game where the player mentions being a biotic.
