Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Release Date Announced: Here’s A List Of Supported Games So Far

By on

Microsoft surprised many at E3 2015 when they announced Xbox One backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games. Microsoft didn?t give a concrete announcement before, but now, they have now announced the exact release date for backwards compatibility.

Get ready to dust-off your Xbox 360 games because you can now play some of them on the Xbox One starting this November 12, Microsoft?s Larry Hryb announced as reported by GamesRadar. The debut of the feature will coincide with the release of the new Xbox One Experience.

Take note that not all your Xbox 360 games will be available for use on the Xbox One. A poll was even held by Microsoft to gauge interest on what titles gamers wanted to be included for backwards compatibility. Some people like Snoop Dog even aggressively campaigned for their favorite games to be included.

Wondering what old titles you can play on your current gen console? Here are all the Xbox One compatible games so far courtesy of IGN:

  • A Kingdom of Keflings
  • Alan Wake
  • Assassin?s Creed Brotherhood
  • Assassin?s Creed II
  • Bayonetta
  • BioShock
  • BioShock Infinite
  • Borderlands
  • Brothers In Arms: Hell?s Highway
  • Cars
  • Child of Eden
  • Civilization Revolution
  • Dark Souls
  • Dead Space
  • Disney Universe
  • Endwar
  • Fable 2
  • Fallout 3
  • Far Cry 2
  • Far Cry 3
  • Risen
  • Risen 2
  • Trials

Fallout 3 was exclusively given for free to Xbox One owners who pre-ordered Fallout 4. If you didn?t own an Xbox 360, this would be a great way for you to at least try the new feature. Burnout Paradise, the open-world crash racer, was also recently announced to join the backwards compatible list.

Backwards compatibility will only be available on Microsoft?s current gen console. Sony has not yet announced such a feature for their PS4.
