Via 360 backwards compatibility.
Today is November 7th, which for fans of 'Mass Effect' means it's N7 day, and happily, this year's N7 is an eventful one.
'Mass Effect' debuted on the Xbox 360 back in 2007, and was again featured on the Xbox One in 2015 in the very first slate of backwards compatible 360 games.
Today, 'Mass Effect 2' and 'Mass Effect 3' join the list of backwards compatible titles. This trilogy is one of the best ever. All three games have their strengths, and for me, no game has since managed to create the kind of far-flung sci-fi world. ('Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare' is the closest thing.) This trilogy may stand alone, but a new game, 'Mass Effect: Andromeda,' is due out on current platforms in Spring 2017.
With these three awesome games now playable on the Xbox One, I expect them to be further celebrated by fans old and new.
And speaking of new fans, 'Mass Effect 2' and 'Mass Effect 3' have been added to the EA Access vault. Getting a crack at these games on the Xbox One can be done just with a simple ($5 for a month) EA Access subscription. (Disc and digital copies are, like with other b/c titles, also supported.)
