Microsoft is going to make some old time Xbox users quite happy with their latest announcement. When the backward compatibility for Xbox games on the Xbox One was announced, the company was pretty clear that the arrival of new titles would not be that frequent.
Following that, one batch of games were given backward compatibility for old games. And now Microsoft has revealed in an Inside Xbox broadcast that a bunch of games will be made available next week on April 17.
The list has some great names, but the most prominent among those has to be Elder Scrolls Morrowind, which was a revolutionary open world game that set the ball rolling for the whole series ahead.
The other games in this list include Destroy All Humans, MX Unleashed, and Full Spectrum Warrior. And up until now only 13 games launched for Xbox have been made available for backward compatibility. These are Black, BloodRayne 2, Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge, Dead to Rights, Fuzion Frenzy, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, The King of Fighters Neowave, Ninja Gaiden Black, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Psychonauts, Red Faction II, Sid Meier’s Pirates, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
The games will work just like they did on an Xbox 360, the disks will be provided and the users will be able to download the digital versions of the games to play them. There are hundreds of other Xbox 360 titles available to play right now, which includes games both old and new.
