The Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog will grow today with the addition of EA Sports' 2012 snowboarding game SSX.

Microsoft's Major Nelson announced on Twitter that the Xbox 360 game is joining the lineup later today. The game weighs in at 4.65 GB, according to its Xbox.com product page.

SSX will become the seventh Xbox 360 game Microsoft has added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility catalog this week. On Tuesday, six new games joined the program, including DuckTales: Remastered and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

GameSpot's SSX review scored the game an 8.5/10.

"It improves on its storied predecessors in every way, with outstanding tracks, intuitive controls, amazing visuals, a diverse assortment of challenges, and fantastic multiplayer options that may have you competing with your friends or the world for a long time to come," reviewer Carolyn Petit said in 2012.

SSX's arrival in the backwards compatibility program is not a complete surprise. In April, a listing for the game on Amazon revealed that it was coming to Xbox One. Another listing showed that Halo 3: ODST was also on the way, but it has not been delivered yet.

The Xbox 360 version of SSX was free through Games With Gold back in November 2014, so you may already have the game.

There are now more than 175 games in the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library. You can see all of the Xbox 360 games you can currently play on an Xbox One here.

New games are added to the mix whenever they are ready, not on a set schedule. Last week, the much-requested Call of Duty: Black Ops came to the program.

People also really want Call of Duty: Black Ops II, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Red Dead Redemption to join the program. On the Xbox Feedback site, these games each have more than 100,000 votes.
