Fans of the Mass Effect trilogy, rejoice: all three of the Xbox 360 titles are now playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Given Mass Effect's popularity as one of the biggest franchises of the Xbox 360 generation, this is sure to come as great news to many.
On the off chance you're unfamiliar with the Mass Effect franchise, the series puts you in the shoes of Commander Shepard as you explore the galaxy, interact with alien races and complete quests. Throughout the trilogy, you unlock an epic story in which your choices and actions have real consequences. When combined with the games' third-person shooter and RPG elements, Mass Effect offers a pretty compelling overall experience.
With the next title in the series, Mass Effect Andromeda, due out in early 2017, the timing of this move couldn't be better. If you already own any of the Mass Effect trilogy, you should be able to play on your Xbox One now. Unfortunately, you will need a disc copy of Mass Effect 2 and 3, as the original Mass Effect is the only part of the trilogy currently available digitally.
Update: In addition, all three Mass Effect games are also now available in the EA Access vault for subscribers to check out.
