Five More Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Arrive

Xbox One owners have more Xbox 360 games they can now play.

41 Comments

It's been something of a quiet period for Xbox One backwards compatibility, but today sees the list of supported Xbox 360 games grow by five.

The biggest name of the bunch is Assassin's Creed III, which released for Xbox 360 in 2012. Joining it on the backwards compatibility train are Shinobi, Shadow Assault/Tenchu, Ilomilo, and Matt Hazard: Blood, Bath, and Beyond, all of which can now be played on Xbox One..

No Caption Provided

If you own any of these games already, you can simply pop in the disc or check your Ready To Download list to get it installed on your Xbox One. Alternatively, you can grab them through the Xbox Store.

For a look at what other Xbox 360 games are supported, check out the full list of Xbox One backwards compatible games.

Argh! Need Brotherhood now for Assassins Creed. Was convinced it was on the list (sure it's now the only game that isn't backwards compatible in the series?!) so I bought it from a store this morning for £1. Will hold onto it as surely it will hit the list soon.

@Starshine_M2A2: The graphics were good (in 2012), the controls and combat were improved, and the environments were cool ... but the mission design was frequently bad, the story was kinda boring, the main character was bland, and it was way too bloated with side content that never really felt meaningful.

When ACIII came out, gamers were just starting to get tired of the yearly releases. After ACII, Brotherhood, and Revelations had all basically been the same game (and after Revelations had felt like filler - even though I liked it), the series needed a strong new entry to freshen it up. Unfortunately, ACIII was a little lame, and cemented the idea that Assassin's Creed needed a break in gamer's minds.

Black Flag was the game the series needed, just a year too late.

@ltjohnnyrico: this is how they feed you, with old games you have to buy again full price although you could get it from GameStop for $2. Think first before you speak. The gaming world has become a valley of wolves and you're the little sheep in between them.

@expredator: That's ... not how backwards compatibility works here, man. And I don't think Microsoft created the BC program instead of trying to secure new games for the Xbox. I don't think its an either/or situation here.

@expredator: You are the one that needs to think or at very least do some basic research (which should be common knowledge really) before you post idiocy like that You do not have to rebuy the games if you already own them and the cheap Gamestop copy (yeah right, like Gamestop sells any of their stuff cheap - strike 2) will work just fine.

This isn't $on¥ we are talking about that would rather rent streams of PS3 games and sell emulated PS2 titles at full price rather than do something for the customer and value their previous game purchases. Sounds like you are the sheep taking it from $ON¥ and liking it. BAAA!

@dlCHIEF58: the fact that you are using currency symbols in writing Sony just underscores how much of a trolling xbone fanboy you are.

@expredator: No, it is to highlight the greed $ON¥ has shown. Now how about your ignorance that you failed to address and tried to divert attention from by your poor attempt at a slight?

@expredator: No, you don't have to buy them again; both your digital ones and the ones you have on disc are the ones you use. Sony is the one that makes you buy stuff again: https://www.gamespot.com/articles/all-the-ps2-on-ps4-games-so-far/1100-6449864/ But you provably know this already and you just want attention from your cheap trolling.

Is it worth it humiliating yourself so badly just for the sake of coming the next day to count the answers you got from your last trash-post? Is this what your life is all about?

I've tried multiple times to get through ACIII. It starts real strong, but man does it get boring before the end.

@fanboysaretrash: lmao!!!

im gonna correct your sentence for you - why point out a lack of feature for one but not the other ?!!?

""Hows that PlayStation 4 and switch backwards compatibility collection coming along oh wait.....""

cant flame one without the other

and both the switch and ps4 is selling better then the x one so that shows how much bc is important

me- i still have working ps1, 2, 3 along side the ps4 so i get b.c and new i.ps :D

@chiefwiggum16: Matt Hazard is Duke Nukem without the Duke.......If I'm not mistaken it parodies games instead of movies and it plays like he's some long lost game legend.....

@darthrevenx: To throw salt into the wound: This isn't even the original "Matt Hazard" game that featured pretty solid voice acting from Will Arnett and Neil Patrick Harris.
