Five More Games Added to Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program

One of them might not be available where you live, however.


The Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog continues to grow today, as Microsoft has released five more Xbox 360 titles into the program.

As announced by Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, these include Bayonetta, de Blob 2, Arkanoid Live, Of Orcs and Men, and QIX++. Hryb noted that Of Orcs and Men is not available in all regions; it looks like the US is one such region, as it does not show up on in the US.


If you already own any of these games on Xbox 360, they should show up automatically in your Xbox One library. Alternatively, you can buy them new on or through the console itself.

Below are download links for all the new additions except Of Orcs and Men:

This is the second time this week that Microsoft added new games to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog. On Monday, Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue, Bejeweled 3, and Gatling Gears arrived.

There are now more than 230 games in the Xbox One's backwards compatibility lineup, and you can see them all here. In other news about backwards compatibility, Square Enix and Amazon have teamed up to offer a deal where you can get a free backwards compatibility game.

The Xbox One's backwards compatibility feature arrived in November 2015. Since then, the response has been "overwhelming," Microsoft recently said. Users have collectively spent 145 million hours playing Xbox 360 games on Xbox One.
