@y7acghij It’s not about EA; we have to bring this to Microsoft’s attention which is why I posted a link to Microsoft’s Xbox support forum.

Huh, according to the reply on the microsoft post, we need to address Bioware. 

"When the game was remade to become an Xbox One version, the game development team made the decision not to include this bit in the Xbox One version for reasons unknown to Microsoft, so in this case, it was a decision made at the developer level (Bioware), the publisher being EA. That being said, this content is no longer available for purchase on either version of the game, which explains why you haven't been able to obtain it."

Heh... Why not contact Bioware now? What's a few more calls after MONTHS of bullpoop?

BioWare is owned by EA, hence its EA matter ... is it not?

@y7acghij EA is just the publisher.

@Rayain23 it turns out they already answered the question.... it seems when they released Mass Effect 2 as backwards compatible game; they didn’t include Overlord as a purchase anymore.... which is weird cause anyone who’s had it before can play it on the XB-One. So I don’t know.... it’s really weird; but we’d have to take it all the way to Bioware if we want it fixed.... I’m likely to give up on it though; after a whole month of arguing back and forth between EA and Microsoft I’m spent; and it’s kinda good to actually have an answer to what the problem was....

Maybe if someone here makes some progress with Bioware I’ll hop back into the good fight; but I’ll have to accept my Mass Effect Collection as incomplete unfortunately 🙃😒🙁

I'm too angry to quit now. I didn't pay for an incomplete game I can't pay the rest for (sounds messed up when I say that out loud).

Feel free to retweet this if you think it's worth it. https://twitter.com/ArothArklaw/status/1157027581075644418.
BTW, when you email Bioware, they tell you to try ea.answer. Pretty odd no?
