Dragon Age: Origins And Battlefield 3 Join Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Service


Another batch of Xbox 360 games has today been made available on Xbox One via the console’s backward compatibility service, Microsoft has announced. Big hitters Battlefield 3, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Dragon Age: Origins are joined by the likes of Ghostbusters and Scrap Metal for the latest round of migrations to the popular feature, which was introduced to Xbox owners back in 2015. If you already own any of the games included, they should show up directly in your library, ready to be downloaded, although Battlefield 3 will require a hard copy to work.

The full list is as follows:

  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  • Battlefield 3 (requires disc)
  • Dragon Age: Origins
  • Ghostbusters
  • Scrap Metal
  • The Splatters
  • Strania

Microsoft confirmed last month that the number of titles available on the service had surpassed the 300 mark, having celebrated the milestone by offering Mistwalker’s JRPG Lost Odyssey for free to all Xbox One owners. Likewise, it was announced earlier this month that players had collectively spent over 265 million hours playing 360 games through their Xbox One over the course of 2016, proving that if done right, the effort is well worth it.

You can expect the software giant to continue supporting backwards compatibility throughout 2017 too, so if there’s still one specific title you’re waiting to see ported over, let Microsoft know by visiting this website.
