Full List of Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games (So Far)

There will be "hundreds" by the time the service launches in full this fall.

330 Comments

With the introduction of Gears of War 1 and Shadow Complex today for Xbox One backwards compatibility and plans for more Gears games in the future, the list of supported games has risen to more than two dozen. The service is available now only for Xbox One Preview Program members (available by invite only), but when it rolls out publicly this fall, there will be "hundreds" of available titles.

No Caption Provided

While Microsoft has not yet published the final list (it's only August, after all), we have already learned close to 30 of the games that will be available.

Check out the list below, but be aware that the list is subject to change. Be sure to bookmark this page, as we'll keep updating it throughout the year.

Don't see your favorite game here? Head to the Xbox Feedback website and let Microsoft know what game you want to see added to the list. The most-requested game right now is Call of Duty: Black Ops II--which Snoop Dogg might have something to say about.

The Xbox One outsold the PlayStation 4 during the week of E3, something that Microsoft thinks is at least partially attributable to backwards compatibility.

Xbox One Backward Compatible Titles (As of September 4):

The Gears of War games are really all I care to play off this list so far! Black Ops 2 is the most requested game but I'd be surprised if it makes the list anytime soon. Activision probably won't agree to its release. They want to push Black Ops 3 down our throats.

Hey everyone.

Was wondering, does anyone know if Fallout 3 is the base game or does it include the GOTY edition? I'm going to buy it but wondered which ones will work, as the price will no doubt rise as soon as it's announced.

@aaronbrookes: The BC on Xbone doesn't support DLC yet, so no. But when it launches for everyone DLC should work just fine.

@Jondommy: I know that, I was wondering whether or not the GOTY will work, because I heard all DLC will be included in the base game, and whether or not you need the extra disc with the DLC or if it just downloads when you install the game.

I would like to see them throw battlefield bad company 2 in with that, and red dead redemption just some classics. Stuff that people will actually play.

I would hope that they're planning on making Mass Effect 2 and 3 comparable if they're going to do it for the first one. I know this is an early list, I'm just surprised it doesn't even refer to them as planned.

I still have my Xbox 360 hooked up so it doesn't matter. Maybe they should concentrate on more modern games.

@cimerians: A lot of people care about older games. Most don't care as much about older consoles though which is why remasters were popular. Backwards compatibility doesn't take anything away from new games. Fallout 3 is going to be backwards compatible and it's not delaying Fallout 4.

@manicpafc: And don't forget Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts that was just added. Also I believe Small Arms was removed was removed from that list just before they launched the program and I have not heard of it being added back.

But then again we are talking about Eddie who never fact checks and is the king of cut and pasting articles while adding his own click/flame bait twist to it.

Anyone else notice the games featured in the picture aren't on the list yet? Hoping this is an indication that they will come as would be pretty misleading otherwise...

Whilst this may not be true backwards compatibility, at least these updates are free, the only benefit to PlayStation Now is that it can be used on a Sony supported device from games console to tablets amongst anything else Sony have partnered with. Downer is the huge costs, so count yourself lucky Microsoft are doing this. Even if it mean having a 24/7 connected Xbox One.

@darksoleride: You don't need a 24/7 connected Xbox One to use Backwards Compatibility. Where did you come up with that whacked out idea?

@dlCHIEF58: No, but you do have to stream to get the game to work. IT is just an emulator of sorts....but that is what a lot of things are going to.

@mesozoic25: theres no streaming involved. The only streaming is if you want to stream to a windows 10 device. PS now is a streaming solution, XB360 BC is not.

@hotwog21: and its not even true backward compatible, u still need an account to dowload the full game, so putting a 360 disc in your xbone without internet and an account will be pointless. How are they allowed to call this backward compatible?

@hotwog21: Dang dude, can you troll any harder. All you need is a silver account which doesn't cost anything which most create for the first time anyway. This process is no different than it was on the 360 and is on the PS4. Your game saves are tied to account on the console as it has been since the 360 and PS3 came out.

As for needing the internet, you only need it to download the compatible part of the game and then don't need to be online after.

How is the BC running now? are the framerates etc comparable to original 360 versions yet? I don't have a Xbox One so cannot try it. Good idea though!

It would be really great if MS released this emulator for PC along with optional enhancements such as resolution upscaling etc (if possible!). It must be possible due to the similarity in architecture between the two systems, although I suppose piracy and licencing issues would get in the way.

Oddly no Fable, No Dead Rising, not even Halo Wars. What about Mass Effect 2 and 3?

Plus a remake of Red Dead Redemption for PS4 :) WITH UNDEAD KNIGHTMARE!
