We’re just into the second week of 2017 and Microsoft is already expanding its Xbox One library of backwards compatible games.
To be fair, head boss Phil Spencer did tease last month that January would see a number of “strong” titles added to the backwards compatibility program. Today, Microsoft is delivering just that by officially bringing in seven new games.
Xbox 360 titles Strania, The Splatters, Scrap Metal, and Ghostbusters can now be played on Xbox One through the backwards compatibility feature. Additionally, Dragon Age: Origins, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 were also added today.
Those who already own the aforementioned seven titles on Xbox 360 will automatically see the games show up in their Xbox One library. Those without and are interested in playing the games from the previous generation can purchase them through the official Xbox Store. You can browse through the price points of each game below.
- Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ($20; 4.88 GB)
- Battlefield 3 (requires disc)
- Dragon Age: Origins ($15; 6.44 GB)
- Ghostbusters ($15: 6.18 GB)
- Scrap Metal ($15; 130.06 MB)
- The Splatters ($10; 505.95 MB)
- Strania ($10; 206.86 MB)
The Xbox One backwards compatibility program was launched in November 2015. Since then, Microsoft has worked vigorously on its library. It currently features more than 300 games. A most notable addition from recent months was the BioShock series.
