Microsoft confirmed earlier this year that Xbox One will get backwards compatibility enabling console owners to play games that originally came out on the Xbox 360. Once the update arrives all they need to do is pop in an Xbox 360 disc to play the game provided that the title supports backwards compatibility for Xbox One. The company had previously said that close to 100 games will be backwards compatible at launch and today it released the final list of 104 titles which will be available on Xbox One starting this Thursday.
The new Xbox One Experience is going to bring major improvements for the console’s software and it’s also the update that adds backwards compatibility to the current-gen gaming machine. Microsoft will start rolling out the update to everyone on November 12th.
104 Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible with Xbox One at launch, there’s no doubt that this list will continue to grow in the months to come, it already features some popular titles like the Gears of War catalog, Assassin’s Creed II, Borderlands, Fallout 3 and many others.
Microsoft confirms that gamers can expect new games to be added to the list “on a regular basis,” starting next month more fan favorites like Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite, Skate 3, Halo Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 and others will be added to the lineup.
The entire list of 104 backwards compatible games is available on the official Xbox website.
