The Xbox One Backward Compatibility program launched last November, allowing Xbox owners to play over 100 Xbox 360 games on their Xbox One consoles. After an update in December, Microsoft has followed up with another update with ten games being added to the backward compatibility list. Not only that, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings which joins the list, is free for Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners in select regions between now and February 5th. It’d be nice to see if this trend continues, as it’d definitely be a nice bonus for Xbox gamers.
The new Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles include:
- Aegis Wing (Xbox LIVE Arcade)
- Age of Booty (Capcom)
- Counter-Strike: GO (Valve Corporation)
- Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad (D3Publisher)
- Sam & Max Save the World (Microsoft Studios)
- Skullgirls (MarvelousAQL)
- Small Arms (Microsoft Studios)
- Soulcalibur (Namco)
- Space Giraffe (Microsoft Studios)
- The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (CD Projekt Red)
Xbox also indicated that this will be the last monthly update as they will start releasing titles as soon as each addition is approved by the engineering team and game publisher. You can check out the complete list of Xbox One Backward Compatibility games, which we’ll be keeping up to date as more titles are added.
