A Bunch Of New Titles Have Been Added To Xbox One's Backwards Compatibility

It’s a new year, and with it Microsoft have brought several new games to the Xbox One‘s backwards compatibility service. Are they the titles you’ve been waiting to see since the service began last year? Not likely, as there’s some really obscure stuff on the list this time around.

Besides The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings and Counter-Strike: GO, you’re not likely to recognize many of the other games present for January’s update. But hey, there must be a large enough audience for the likes of Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad – they are, after all, voted for (in part) by Xbox owners.

You can check out the full list below.

  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

  • Sam & Max Save the World

  • Aegis Wing

  • Counter-Strike: GO

  • Age of Booty

  • Space Giraffe

  • Soulcalibur

  • Skullgirls

  • Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad

  • Small Arms

Interestingly, Microsoft announced in the same post that, going forward, updates to the backwards compatible library will be handled slightly differently. Instead of being released in batches – like today – Microsoft’s Xbox Engineering team will begin releasing titles as they become available instead of grouping several up into one large batch.

Based on your feedback, the Xbox Engineering team will start to pilot a new way to launch Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles. Starting today, we’ll release titles as they become available, rather than a set monthly launch date. What this means for you is that you won’t have to wait to find out the latest titles; we’ll release whatever is available, when they’re available, once each title has received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval.

Despite the continued updates to the service, there’s undoubtedly that one obscure game you’re still waiting to be added to the Xbox One. Let us know what it is in the comments below!
