Bioware’s sci-fi action shooters Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 have made their way to the list of backwards compatible games for Xbox One. Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb first announced the news in a Twitter post made earlier this week.
Mass Effect 2 first launched in 2010 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Players assume the role of the game’s main protagonist Shepard, and his/her fight against the Reapers. Mass Effect 3 released in 2012 on the same platforms and is the latest installment in the franchise.

The series will make its return with Mass Effect: Andromeda. Andromeda recently received an all-new cinematic trailer, teasing the game’s plot and locations. In Andromeda, players will take on a completely different character called Ryder.
In addition to the two games, Playdead’s 2D side-scrolling puzzle game Limbo was also added to Xbox One’s backwards compatible library recently. Currently, the most requested games to be added to the backwards compatibility library include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Skyrim, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Stay tuned for more games coming to the Xbox One backward compatibility program. Let us know in the comments which games you’d like to see next.
