Mass Effect

The Xbox One backwards compatibility is definitely one the best features that have been introduced to the Microsoft console after launch. Thanks to this feature, players are able to enjoy some of the best games that have been released on Xbox 360 over the years on the new console, a feature that has expanded the Xbox One’s library considerably.

Among the titles available through the Xbox One backwards compatibility is Mass Effect, the first entry of the role playing game series developed by BioWare. Like other games, Mass Effect received a few DLC packs which expanded the game with new content but these packs haven’t been made available on Xbox One at the same time as the main game. However it seems like they can now be played on the new console through backwards compatibility.

According to online reports, the Mass Effect DLC packs Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station are both ready to install when playing Mass Effect on Xbox One through backwards compatibility. The two DLC packs apparently only show up if they have already been purchased. Deleting and installing the game again may also make them become available for install according to some users.

The Xbox One backwards compatibility feature has been expanded with plenty of titles and more are coming in the future. Last month Ubisoft teased some possible additions to the feature like several Assassin’s Creed titles as well as Far Cry 3, Rayman Origins and others.

Back in August another highly popular title has been confirmed for the Xbox One backwards compatibility. It’s been confirmed that the Platinum Games developed action game Bayonetta will become compatible with the feature in the future. Unfortunately it’s not yet known precisely when the game will be available on Xbox One at the time.

Mass Effect is now playable on Xbox One through the backwards compatibility feature. The game’s DLC packs DLC packs Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station can also be played on Xbox One right now.

Returnal developer Housemarque will move into a fancy new studio by the end of next year.

Finland’s longest-running game developer, founded in 1995 and based in Helsinki. Housemarque says it wants to move to Helsinki and create “the Nordics’ most advanced gaming headquarters” in a new blog post. The studio wants to be a “testament to our rich gaming legacy” and a “beacon of innovation and creativity in the Northernmost capital”.

Brand director Mikael Haveri calls the studio’s modern, expensive workspace more than just a “shiny new office”. The post states, “We are creating an environment that merges Nordic sensibilities with creativity, aiming to attract the world’s best game developers,” with cutting-edge meeting rooms, audio studios, testing areas, and wellness spaces.

In addition, Housemarque wants the new studio to be green. “Our revamped hub will champion green initiatives, balancing technology and planetary care,” it says. “As we embark on this transformative journey, we’re committed to solidifying our gameplay innovation position.”

It sounds great, but we won’t see it until 2024.

Another PS Studios team gets a workplace makeover. Media Molecule’s Guildford office was completely renovated, and Firesprite moved into a modern studio like Housemarque’s. Further back, Guerrilla Games moved to a fancy studio in 2021. Sony appears to be investing heavily in its teams’ work environments to ensure the best conditions.

Housemarque has several job openings and may expand if its new home is larger. We’ll find out next year, but the Finnish studio appears to be improving.
