As part of N7 Day, Bioware has announced that Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 are now compatible with Xbox One. This means players can now play the entire Mass Effect trilogy on one of the current generation platforms. Previously, the games wouldn't work on the Xbox One's Backward Compatibility because the system wouldn't support multi-disc titles. That issue has since been resolved.
With N7 Day, many were hoping that Bioware would announce a full remastered package for the entire Mass Effect trilogy. The company previously packed all three games into a single release in 2012, which launched for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. An updated version of that package on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 would be grand.
Bioware has previously admitted to internal discussions of a remastered edition of the Mass Effect games.
"We have discussed that internally. If we can put solid plans together we'll share," said Bioware general manager Aaron Flynn on Twitter in response to a fan asking about remasters.
Either way, you can slam Mass Effect 2 and 3 into your Xbox One right now and they'll run. The entire trilogy is also available in the EA Access Vault. If you have EA's subscription service, for $5 a month you gain access to a whole library of games, including all of the Mass Effect games, finally.
Mass Effect Andromeda is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Spring 2017.
