New games added to Xbox One backwards compatibility

New games added to Xbox One backwards compatibility


After the announcement of backwards compatibility for the Xbox One, fans have been anxiously awaiting for their favorite games to return. This week a new list of games was added to the number of playable Xbox 360 games including some truly awesome titles.

The list of new games added for December are:

  • Braid
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  • Doritos Crash Course
  • Fable III
  • Halo: Reach
  • Hydro Thunder
  • Iron Badge
  • Kane & Lynch 2


[column size=one_half position=last ]

  • Motocross Madness
  • Ms. Pac-Man
  • Peggle
  • Portal: Still Alive
  • Spelunky
  • Splosion Man
  • Ticket to Ride
  • Zuma’s Revenge


The team at Xbox working on bringing us new titles for backwards compatibility continues to hit the nail on the head with their ideas. Games like Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Fable III are epic role playing games that allow for hours of entertainment. Not only are they looking at recent successes, but they are also adding games like Hydro Thunder (yup, from 1999) that bring back fond memories of the teal seated game at the arcade.

Major Nelson has offered up the full list of titles currently available for backwards compatibility with the list growing all the time. Xbox wants to know what games you want to play on the Xbox One as well: you can head over to their site and vote on your favorite Xbox 360 games to be added to the ever growing list of nostalgic fun.

This method of voicing opinions is clearly already working to shape the list of games available. According to the list, three of the top 20 voted games are already in progress to be made backwards compatible. These games are Call of Duty: Black Ops (rank 5), BioShock Infinite (rank 14), and Halo: Wars (rank 17).

This list is already populated with great titles from the previous console generation and hopefully the backwards compatibility team continues to make their way through the list bringing us our wishes.

For players like us, the titles that are coming out helped shape our gaming experiences throughout high school and into college. Personally I’m still eagerly awaiting my chance to play Red Dead Redemption again, which is high up on the list of top voted games. No surprise there.

While the Xbox One may not be selling as well as the PlayStation 4, the time is obviously working hard to win over the hearts of their fans, as well as making up for lost time and loyalty with the brand’s marketing in the past. Under Phil Spencer‘s proactive and consumer-friendly leadership, they’re well on their way to do that.
