Halo Reach and other new Xbox 360 titles added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility List

Microsoft has just updated the Xbox One backward compatibility list with 16 new Xbox 360 titles, including the eagerly awaited Halo Reach. Halo Reach was the only title in the Halo franchise that wasn’t playable on Microsoft’s current generation platform. All that has now changed, thanks to Xbox One’s recently added backward compatibility feature.

Other prominent titles on the list include Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Fable III. Portal fans will be pleased to know that Xbox 360 version of Portal: Still Alive is now playable on the Xbox One.

According to Microsoft, Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, Just Cause 2, Assassin’s Creed II and DiRT 3 are the most popular among the existing backward compatible Xbox 360 titles being played on Xbox One. The console maker is committed to adding new titles to the Xbox One backward compatibility catalog on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, since November 12, Xbox 360 games that are announced as part of the Games With Gold promotion are Xbox One compatible by default.

We feel that backward compatibility is an essential feature for the preservation of games from earlier console generations, particularly in the era of digital ownership. By remaining committed to bringing past generation titles to the Xbox One, Microsoft is looking to earn the respect of its loyal fan base.
