Mass Effect 2 and 3

If you’re one of those people who no longer have an Xbox 360 but are looking to replay the Mass Effect trilogy before Mass Effect: Andromeda comes out, you’re in luck. Mass Effect 2 and 3 are now available on the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility service, joining the first Mass Effect game.

The original Mass Effect was one of the first games put on the backwards compatibility service, and now, two years after the service started, Mass Effect 2 and 3 are now joining it on the service, with the newest iteration in the series, Mass Effect: Andromeda, only a few months away.

Mass Effect is one of the most-remembered and best-reviewed video games series on the Xbox 360, which only got bigger and bigger as we followed Commander Shepard and his brave crew through a journey to defeat the seemingly unstoppable Reapers as they prepared to wipe out all life in the galaxy for the umpteenth time.

Though the game didn’t end well in the opinions of many (the ending of Mass Effect 3 was one of the most controversial endings likely ever, despite how good the rest of the game was), the anticipation for Mass Effect: Andromeda has been fairly high, especially since today finally has a new trailer for the game out after two years of waiting.

Mass Effect 2 and 3 will also likely still have the same import mechanic that allowed Mass Effect to take all of your decisions into account along each game’s story that all ends up leading into Mass Effect 3’s final battle.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is supposed to be releasing sometime in March of next year, and players will be able to get on board the ark ship Hyperion in order to make their way into the far-off Andromeda galaxy and explore new horizons in a new galaxy far away from the Milky Way.
