Three New Games Added To Xbox One Backwards Compatibility


Assassin’s Creed, Grid 2 and Dark Void are three newest additions to the Xbox One‘s backwards compatibility service, Microsoft has announced. The first Assassin’s Creed is the second game in the series to join the service after Assassin’s Creed II, Grid 2 adds some more diversity for racing game enthusiasts and Dark Void, well, it’s an obscure Capcom-published game that you probably missed when it originally released in 2010. It’s all about shooting things while zooming around with a jet-pack, and it’s actually quite fun.

The three new additions follow the likes of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Alan Wake and Pac-Man being added to the service last week, but, according to Microsoft’s Xbox feedback site – where gamers can request the release of certain games on the service – the top four most-requested titles still haven’t been added.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, Red Dead Redemption, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim are the four games in question, and it’s a wonder how any of them are still absent – they’re all hugely popular titles.

Red Dead Redemption, however, did briefly pop up on the service back in February, but was promptly removed shortly afterwards. Microsoft says it plans to continuously add more and more games to the service on a regular basis, but just recently changed the way in which they deliver them.

Ultimately, whether each game appears on the service is entirely up to the discretion of its respective publisher, according to Microsoft, which explains why some of the most popular games still haven’t shown up.
