Mass Effect Asteroid x57 choice will give fans a different take on the campaign.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition released on May 14. The game comprises a compilation of all of the games in the popular Mass Effect trilogy: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3.

While playing the game, old and new players have encountered the infamous X57: Bring Down the Sky mission.

Mass Effect Asteroid x57 Choice: Which Should You Choose?

The X57: Bring Down the Sky mission pits players in a tough position; forcing them to pick between to choose between two options.

Option 1 has players attack Balak but also sacrificing the hostages in return. Players will have to fight Balak himself, while also fighting multiple of his companions. Players have to defeat Balak, two batarian Bodyguards, two Batarian War Beasts, and a pair of Defense Drones.

While option 2 has players let Balak go, thus saving the hostages. Even though players can choose to not fight Balak, they will still have to fight two Defense Drones.

The mission tests players' morals and willpower; let Balak go and save the hostages, or kill him and let the hostages die.
