Even though the latest entry in the series may have turned out to be less than stellar, the Mass Effect trilogy turned out to be one of the biggest franchises of the last console generation. However, while the first Mass Effect was available both digitally and physically, anyone who may have missed out on the series and was looking to catch up would have to hunt down physical copies of the disc-only Mass Effect 2 and 3. That's now changed, however, as the latter two entries in the trilogy are now available to purchase digitally from the Xbox 360 Marketplace for the first time (via Reddit).
Remarkably, this comes more than seven years after the 2010 release of Mass Effect 2, and more than five since the release of Mass Effect 3. More importantly for Xbox One gamers, however, is that this comes a year after the full trilogy landed on the backward compatible list. That means you can now catch up on all three titles without the need for a physical copies.
The Mass Effect trilogy is a science fiction role-playing epic that has been largely praised for its narrative depth, bolstered by its branching conversation system. If you're looking to dive back into the series, you can pick up each entry now for $19.99 a pop on the Xbox 360 Marketplace.
