Mass Effect 2 With AI Upscaling Looks Fantastic

Now that modders have got their hands on upscaling tools, all sorts of games are looking a hell of a lot nicer. Case in point: Mass Effect 2.

The ALOT mod for Mass Effect 2 was already a must-have download for any Mass Effect playthrough. A collaboration project, the mod had already added over 1200 upgraded textures to bring character models, environments, weapons, and interiors into the modern age.

[referenced url=”” thumb=”×231.jpg” title=”Mass Effect Sequels Get Gigantic 2K And 4K HD Texture Mods” excerpt=”It’s been years since the main Mass Effect trilogy ended, but people are still tinkering away on mods for the series. One aspect of older titles that tends to age poorly is texture resolution. Never fear, a fellow with the handle “CreeperLava” has come to the rescue with their “A Lot Of Textures” mods for the second and third games.”]

But like a lot of other games recently, neural networks can do a hell of a job when it comes to making textures look even better. So the team behind ALOT decided to run their Mass Effect 2 textures through the Gigapixel machine learning upscaler, boosting the mercenary armour textures to either 2K or 4K along with some others.

Pretty solid reason to bust out Mass Effect 2 again. The instructions for installing the ALOT mod can be found in the description here.
