UPDATE: Xbox One Backwards Compatibility has THREE new games added by Microsoft | Gaming | Entertainment


It might be worth checking your Xbox Games Library today, following the news that Microsoft have been doing more updating.

It was announced today by Xbox’s Larry Hryb that the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games list has seen three new launches.

VANQUISH, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Brave: The Video Game are now all available to play on the Xbox One.

Brave: The Video Game is actually one of the new Games with Gold titles being released in March, and will therefore be available to download by everyone with a Gold subscription.

The digital titles that you own and are part of the Back Compat game catalog will automatically show up in the “Ready to Install” section on your Xbox One. 

For disc-based games that are a part of the Back Compat game catalog, insert the disc and the console will begin downloading the game to your hard drive. 

After the game has downloaded to your hard drive, users will still need to keep the game disc in the drive to play.

The most popular of the three new games is Vanquish, which currently has over 9,000 votes backing its inclusion.

For those that don’t remember, Vanquish is a third-person shooter was directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series.

“The story of Vanquish takes place on a vast space station in a near future world where nations war over the planet’s remaining energy resources. Against this backdrop, players take the role of Sam Gideon, a government agent kitted out with a futuristic battle suit. 

“A versatile fighter with a huge arsenal of weaponry at his disposal, Sam also has an array of martial arts skills that he can use to take down his robot enemies.”

Fans are hopeful that Microsoft will now turn its attention to the original Xbox Backwards Compatibility list.

While Microsoft is keen to assure fans that more games will be added over time, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that there are complications with licenses.

“There are a number of OG games in BC pipeline, they won’t drop as often as the 360 games but team is working to validate and get permissions,” Spencer tweeted.

“More complicated with some just due to the age of the rights etc.”

Original Xbox releases joined the backwards compatibility lineup last year. Compatible games include Ninja Gaiden Black, Bloodrayne 2, Crimson Skies, Dead to Rights and Grabbed by the Ghoulies.
