Halo Reach Gets New Update For Xbox One Backwards Compatibility, Reportedly Fixes Issues

Halo Reach was recently made available for the Xbox One using backwards compatibility, however it has faced several issues with its emulation on Xbox One including issues with frame rate and graphics. This has prompted Microsoft to pay special attention to the emulation of the game on the Xbox One and they have recently released a brand new update that reportedly manages to fix or reduce some of the issues that plagued the launch of the game.

This new update is around 732 MB in size, which seems huge for an Xbox 360 game emulated on the Xbox One. While there are no patch notes available for this new update, some reddit users have noticed improvements in the game’s performance and visuals, including better anti-aliasing and improved frame rate.


Halo Reach is the last Halo game that was made available for the Xbox One after the release of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection. After the release of Halo Reach, all of the Halo games are now playable on the Xbox One, making it the ultimate console for all the Halo fans.

Microsoft launched the backwards compatibility for Xbox One last year in November. The initial launch included around 100 games and more were added in the subsequent month. Microsoft is planning to add new games each month for the Xbox 360 BC on the Xbox One. The best part is that you don’t need to buy these games again in order to play them.
