Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 now work on Xbox One and are part of the EA Access vault

You can now play the entire Mass Effect trilogy on the Xbox One.


The Xbox One can now play every game in the sci-fi series that helped define the last generation of consoles.

Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3 all now work on Xbox One thanks to that system’s backward compatibility with the Xbox 360. This means you can play through the adventures of Commander Shepard as long as you own the disc or downloadable copies of the Mass Effect games. The trilogy is also available in the EA Access Vault, which is a collection of games that anyone who subscribes to EA’s premium service for $5 per month or $30 per year gets access to for as long as they maintain their membership. To get the games on Xbox One, you’ll have to search for them in the Xbox Store. If you already own them or have EA Access, you should have the option to Install. They do not appear in the EA Access app on Microsoft’s console.

All three games are sprawling, space-traveling role-playing adventures from publisher Electronic Arts and developer BioWare. They tell the story of the human race of Earth interacting with advanced alien races throughout the galaxy while giving players some freedom to shape their Shepard however they like. And now, you can enjoy the games without having to bust out your Xbox 360.

It is, of course, not a coincidence that the Mass Effect series came to the Xbox One on November 7. Today is what EA and BioWare call “N7” day, a celebration of Mass Effect that takes its name from the N7 special-forces designation that Commander Shepard earned before starring in the first Mass Effect game.

Existing EV batteries could be recharged five times faster

Lithium-ion batteries have massively improved in the last half-decade, but there are still issues. The biggest, especially for EVs, is that charging takes too long to make them as useful as regular cars for highway driving. Researchers from the University of Warwick (WMG) have discovered that we may not need to be so patient, though. They developed a new type of sensor that measures internal battery temperatures and discovered that we can probably recharge them up to five times quicker without overheating problems.

Overcharging a lithium-ion battery anode can lead to lithium buildup, which can break through a battery's separator, create a short-circuit and cause catastrophic failure. That can cause the electrolyte to emit gases and literally blow up the battery, so manufacturers impose strict charging power limits to prevent it.

Those limits are based on hard-to-measure internal temperatures, however, which is where the WMG probe comes in. It's a fiber optic sensor, protected by a chemical layer that can be directly inserted into a lithium-ion cell to give highly precise thermal measurements without affecting its performance.

The team tested the sensor on standard 18650 li-ion cells, used in Tesla's Model S and X, among other EVs. They discovered that they can be charged five times faster than previously thought without damage. Such speeds would reduce battery life, but if used judiciously, the impact would be minimized, said lead researcher Dr. Tazdin Amietszajew.

Faster charging as always comes at the expense of overall battery life but many consumers would welcome the ability to charge a vehicle battery quickly when short journey times are required and then to switch to standard charge periods at other times.

There's still some work to do. While the research showed the li-ion cells can support higher temperatures, EVs and charging systems would have to have "precisely tuned profiles/limits" to prevent problems. It's also not clear how battery makers would install the sensors in the cells.

Nevertheless, it shows a lot of promise for much faster charging speeds in the near future. Even if battery capacities stayed the same, charging in 5 minutes instead of 25 could flip a lot of drivers over to the green side.
