Microsoft has announced that another ten Xbox 360 games has been added to the list of those that are backward compatible with Xbox One, the most exciting of which is the middle entry in CD Projekt RED’s epic RPG trilogy, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. The company has also revealed that it is eschewing monthly releases of future backward compatibility additions, choosing instead to make them available the moment they are made compatible.
“[T]he Xbox Engineering team will start to pilot a new way to launch Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles,” the Xbox Wire blog post reads. “Starting today, we’ll release titles as they become available, rather than a set monthly launch date. What this means for you is that you won’t have to wait to find out the latest titles; we’ll release whatever is available, when they’re available, once each title has received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval.”
The Xbox 360 games that have been added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list are:
- The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
- Sam & Max Save the World
- Aegis Wing
- Counter-Strike: GO
- Age of Booty
- Space Giraffe
- Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad
- Small Arms
The above titles are all available for Xbox One from today.
