The news comes by way of Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, who said on Twitter that the 2008 survival-horror game has joined the lineup.

Earlier this week, Halo Wars, SoulCalibur II, and The King of Fighters '98 all became backward compatible on Xbox One, while Left 4 Dead 2 was added just yesterday. Last week also saw two separate sets of additions, headlined by Assassin's Creed and Dark Souls.

Games are not added to the backwards compatibility program on any set schedule, but instead are added whenever they are ready.
