The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings leads Microsoft’s January update on Xbox One Backward Compatibility. Better yet, Xbox Live Gold members can score the game for free right now!
I will never give up my Xbox 360, but wouldn’t it be great if all those free games I got on it could also work with my shiny Xbox One?
Yesterday during the launch of Halo 5: Guardians, Xbox’s own Larry Hryb finally announced the release date that Xbox One owners have been waiting for since E3.
The latest title to receive the backward compatibility treatment on Xbox One is Borderlands, 2K’s and Gearbox’s gem that has spawned several sequels since its initial release. Xbox Preview members can play it right now, while everyone else will be able to play it when Xbox One gets its new dashboard update this November.
Few titles have stirred our love for backwards compatibility like this one being teased today. Hoorah!
Originally posted late last night via Destructoid, it looks like Microsoft is potentially looking into original Xbox backwards compatibility on their Xbox One console. Not happy with simply nailing Xbox 360 compatibility, Microsoft’s own Phil Spencer acknowledges that its customer base wants to be able to play the entire Xbox library on their newest console as well. Once the Fall update comes out this November, which brings a new operating system and Xbox 360 backwards compatibility to the Xbox One, Spencer says the team may then look into making original Xbox games playable via a future update.
In the meantime, Microsoft has the current list of Xbox 360 titles that already work on the Xbox One via their free Preview Program. The rest should be coming out this November.
