Xbox One: List Of Backwards Compatible Games


A huge concern on the mind of gamers since the launch of the Xbox One and Playstation 4 is whether or not the systems would become backwards compatible at any point. If you don’t know, backwards compatibility gives gamers the option to play the previous system’s games on their new system. So if you have a huge pile of Xbox 360 games, they wouldn’t become useless the instant you upgrade to the new system. While Playstation 4 has maintained that they’re “looking forward” and focusing on games for the PS4 instead of giving gamers the option to play their Playstation 3 games on the new system, The Xbox One is adding backwards compatibility this November for all users, earlier than that for members of their Preview Program. Just like last generation, only specific games are supported at first. Microsoft did reveal at Gamescom ’15 that “ALL NEW GAMES WITH GOLD GAMES WILL BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE.”  Below is a list of already-confirmed games, as well as a list of rumored additions in the coming months. I noticed that several of the games that I’ve been replaying lately are not on the list, such as the Arkham games, and Red Dead Redemption, just to name a couple. Anyway, check out the list of compatible games below.
