Microsoft adds five games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility


Reaction score
Today, Microsoft added five more titles to the list of Xbox 360 games that are backward compatible with the Xbox One. Well, it's more like four and a half, as Of Orcs and Men is only available in select regions, and the US and UK don't seem to be among them.

The company added three games on Tuesday, so the total of eight additions this week is quite a refreshing change. Last week only saw two new games, as did the week before. In fact, this is the first time that more than two games were added to the list since the week of August 2.

Here's what's new to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today:

Backward compatible Xbox games are always a great way to get new content on the cheap, but don't forget about Games with Gold, which is a program that gives Xbox Live Gold members four free games a month. The only catch is that you have to claim them within the specified dates.

You still have a week to grab WWE 2K16 (Xbox One), which was part of last month's Games with Gold. From , you can get Forza Horizon (Xbox 360) until the 15th and Earthlock: Festival of Magic (Xbox One) until the end of the month. Beginning on the 16th, you'll be eligible to claim Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China (Xbox One) and Mirror's Edge (Xbox 360).
