Xbox One Backward Compatibility List Expands
A few days ago we told you how Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb was fed up with Xbox users repeatedly asking him on social media about whether or not Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be made available via backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. Today, another batch of Xbox 360 games has been made available on Xbox One via the console’s backward compatibility service. Unfortunately, Black Ops II is not one of them.
Microsoft announced that Battlefield 3, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Dragon Age: Origins have joined the lineup, along with Ghostbusters and Scrap Metal. If you already own any of the games included, they should show up directly in your library, ready to be downloaded. That said Battlefield 3 will require a hard copy to work.
The full list is as follows:
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2
- Battlefield 3 (requires disc)
- Dragon Age: Origins
- Scrap Metal
- The Splatters
Microsoft confirmed last month that the number of titles available on the service had surpassed the 300 mark, having celebrated the milestone by offering Mistwalker’s JRPG Lost Odyssey for free to all Xbox One owners. Likewise, it was announced earlier this month that players had collectively spent over 265 million hours playing 360 games through their Xbox One over the course of 2016, proving that if done right, the effort is well worth it. You can expect the software giant to continue supporting backwards compatibility throughout 2017 too, so if there’s still one specific title you’re waiting to see ported over, let Microsoft know by visiting this website.
