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):

@siarhei: Likely, but I'm sure we'll see a trilogy remaster. They already sort of got one with the PC versions, so it's practically almost done.

@Barighm: Really? I thought they (Bioware) explicitly said not to expect a remaster for new gen consoles.

Seriously tho.... I am super stoked about BC. Sure I have my 360 sitting right next to my xbox one but to be bale to access a huge library of games all on one console it awesome! Plus all your digital games will carry over. Im gonna need at least a 5TB drive..

@skiggy34: Yes if your going fully digital, I say get the 5TB. As for me, I'm still good with my 1TB Xbox One and I still got room to spare. That said, I wasn't mad at these consoles didn't have BC to begin with, I always keep my old consoles and the best thing about the Xbox 360 is the fact that it can play original Xbox games. If the Xbox One can play my original Xbox games, I'll be really impress and unplug my 360.

@siarhei: They're planning on adding them, but there are issues with multi-disc releases. I'm hoping ME2 is added to the list soon to test out 2 & 3 disc games.

LOL this is sadder than I even thought, who doesn't want to play those xbox 360 classics like PD Zero with a lower framerate on an emulator, wooohooo. and look at all those titles.

@mkeezay22: It's in beta right now; these games at the moment are just there for testing until this fall when the BC goes public.

@rooster42: Skyrim is a definite, but im super worried about any of the MvsC games being BC because marvel treats their games and characters strictly. I really want UMVC3 especially to be BC but i have my doubts it will even happen. :/

Don't have any of these (anymore). Though the only one I would care about is Mass Effect.
