New Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games Revealed

It's time to remind yourself "What is a man?"


Microsoft has named three more classic games that Xbox One owners can now play through backwards compatibility. The trio of games are Alan Wake, Pac-Man, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Those that own these games digitally will be able to download them again for free from the "Ready to Download" section of the Xbox One. If you own Alan Wake on disc, you can also put this in and the necessary filed required to make it work will be downloaded.

With the introduction of these games, the Xbox One backwards compatibility program now includes over 134 games. You can see all of them in this roundup post.

One of the major upcoming additions to the list of backwards compatible titles is Dark Souls, which Microsoft confirmed is being added following a leak.

The original Dark Souls will also be available for free to those that pre-order the digital version of Dark Souls 3 on Xbox One. This pre-order bonus is available "for a limited time."

Dark Souls 3 launches on April 12 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki previously indicated he wants to wrap up the Souls saga with this game. You can read GameSpot's full Dark Souls 3 interview with Miyazaki here.
