Xbox One Backwards Compatibility gets TWO new Xbox 360 games from Microsoft – Express.co.uk

Microsoft confirmed the news today, revealing that both Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon and F1 2014 would be the next Xbox 360 games to be added to the list.

Both titles have under 3,000 votes on the official Xbox One Backwards Compatibility leaderboards and are the first BC titles confirmed for July.

June was actually one of the slowest months for Backwards Compatible announcements, with Microsoft revealing a total of six games.

Both Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Call of Duty: Ghosts were among the launches, and Xbox One fans will be hoping more of the like will be revealed in July.

Fans also have the chance to boost their Xbox 360 games library with this month’s Games with Gold offering.

Kane & Lynch 2 is currently available to download for anyone with a Gold membership, but only until July 15.

Microsoft will then switch out the classic title with swashbuckling adventure LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game, from July 16.

Both are solid titles from the Xbox 360 era, which can be downloaded and uninstalled whenever needed.

It should also be noted that these new titles will be available on the Xbox One X when it launches in November.

Microsoft recently confirmed that a host of Halo titles are being made Backwards Compatible on the Xbox One.

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility is getting a big Guardians boost, with Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary all being added.

Not only will all of those titles be arriving later this year, but all the extra DLC will be made compatible and released for free.

“The Xbox One’s list of backward compatible titles has grown by leaps and bounds since the initial wave of games came out in 2015, with nearly three hundred Xbox 360 titles currently supported,” a message from 343 Industries explains.

“Today we’re thrilled to announce four more very special additions coming later this year to the Xbox One back-compat program:  Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: CE Anniversary!

“Each of these games will include campaign and multiplayer, and will even support LAN play on Xbox One – including LAN play between Xbox One and Xbox 360! Once released, you’ll be able to pop in your original disc or purchase a digital copy of the game via the Xbox Store and jump right in.

“Best of all, once these titles are added to the program, every Xbox 360 Halo add-on map pack in the Xbox Store will be made available for free, ensuring you have everything you need to achieve maximum enjoyment in online matchmaking or custom games.

“We know this is something you’ve been asking for, and we’re excited to make these map packs available for all players.”

As mentioned above, Microsoft are aiming to make it possible for lan parties to be hosted using both Xbox Ones and Xbox 360s.

While these will be new games for the Backwards Compatiblity list, they are currently available to play on Xbox One.

This is through buying the Master Chief Collection, with all included titles running at 60 frames per second.
