2K/4K texture pack for the Mass Effect trilogy updated with hundreds of new textures

Audio player loading…

All the way back in 2012 we were talking about installing a texture pack mod to replay the early Mass Effect games (opens in new tab), only with slightly prettier versions of our bro, Garrus. Tireless modders have continued their work over the years and the latest versions of those textures have been compiled into an update for the ALOT mod (it stands for A Lot Of Textures). More than 300 textures have been added, all of which balance remaining as close as possible to the original aesthetic while making the graphics look as swish as possible on modern monitors. 

If you're in the mood for a replay, or you missed these classics the first time, check out Nexusmods (opens in new tab) to download the texture packs.

Thanks, DSOG (opens in new tab).

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get.
