BioWare’s science fiction action role-playing third-person shooters, Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 are now added to Xbox One Backward Compatibility program.
Mass Effect 2 was released in 2010 and Mass Effect 3 was released in 2012 on Xbox 360.
The second game in Mass Effect series “takes place two years after the events of Mass Effect. Human colonies are being attacked, their colonists disappearing without a trace.
The game’s protagonist, Commander Shepard, is forced into an uneasy alliance with the pro-Human paramilitary organization, Cerberus, in an effort to discover the cause.
Evidence emerges pointing to the ‘Collectors’, an advanced, enigmatic race of insect-like humanoids. Adding to the threat is the revelation that the Collectors are working for the Reapers.
Shepard sets out on a “suicide mission” to stop the Collectors, accompanied by a hand-picked team of soldiers, assassins, mercenaries, and specialists.”
In The third and final installment in the Mass Effect trilogy, “the Reapers have returned in force, and have begun their purge of the galaxy, attacking Earth.
During this attack Commander Shepard is on Earth and forced to flee. After fleeing Earth, Commander Shepard must hurry and rally the advanced races of the galaxy to make one final stand, not only to save Earth, but also to break a cycle that has continued for millions of years (hence providing the answer to Fermi’s Paradox).”
Mass Effect 2 download size is 13.2 GB and Mass Effect 3 is 15.6 GB.
The game isn’t available digitally, but you can play the game if you own the physical disc.
However, EA announced that both games have been added to the EA Access vault. You can download and play them from the EA Access hub until your subscription ends.
The entire Mass Effect trilogy (including DLC’s) is available on PC and Xbox One, as part of EA and Origin Access.
