Major Nelson, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced yesterday that 4 new titles are now available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. The games in question are Mars: War Logs, Bloodforge, Gripshift, and Go! Go! Break Steady. With these 4 games, the total number of Xbox 360 games available to play on the Xbox One comes to a grand total of 213. Microsoft has said that the response to backwards compatibility has been overwhelming and that users have already spent more than 100 million combined hours with the feature.
For those readers who are not in the know, Microsoft rolled out backwards compatibility back in November 2015 and claimed that it was the biggest update for the console to date, and allowed the Xbox One to play compatible Xbox 360 games. Since then, new titles are released regularly and hundreds more are promised to become available in the near future. To see a full list of the compatible games, click here.
For a while now, fans have been asking for multiple Xbox 360 classics to become available via this service. One of these games, Red Dead Redemption, became available on Xbox One due to an “error” earlier this year and hopefully Microsoft can officially release the game into the program in the near future.
