Six Xbox 360 Games Also Get Enhanced Updates for Xbox One X
Microsoft continues to expand its backwards compatible catalogue for Xbox One. The company revealed yesterday that 19 more Original Xbox games will receive backwards compatible support for Xbox One.
Microsoft is planning on rolling the games out in two waves, the first on April 17th and the second on April 26th. This brings the total of original Xbox games playable on Xbox One to 32. The original 13 launched late last year.
The games releasing on April 17th are:
- Blinx: The Time Sweeper
- Conker: Live & Reloaded
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (this confirms an earlier report)
- Hunter: The Reckoning
- Jade Empire
- Panzer Dragoon Orta
- SSX 3
On April 26th, the games releasing are:
- Destroy All Humans!
- Full Spectrum Warrior
- Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
- MX Unleashed
- Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory
- Star Wars Battlefront
- Star Wars Battlefront II
- Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
- Star Wars Jedi Starfighter
- Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
- Star Wars Republic Commando
As is the case with all original Xbox games, players can expect a huge bump in resolution when playing on new hardware — 4X the pixel count on One and One S, or 16X the pixel count on One X. Playing these games is as simple as inserting the original disc into your console, or purchasing them digitally from the Xbox One Games Store.
On a similar note, Microsoft also revealed that six Xbox 360 games that are already backwards compatible will receive an Xbox One X enhanced update. Those games are Red Dead Redemption, Portal 2, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Sonic Generations, Gears of War 2, and Darksiders II. Enhanced Xbox One X games offer improved pixel counts and colour depth. Patches for all six games should be available now on Xbox One X.
