Next Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Game Arrives

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has been added to the lineup.


The Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog expands today with its latest addition.

Ubisoft's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is headed to the program today, Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb announced on Twitter. The '80s-inspired game originally came out in 2013 and was positively received.

Blood Dragon weighs in at 2.18 GB. If you already own it digitally, the game should show up automatically in your library, while newcomers can buy it for $15. It's not the only Blood Dragon game available on Xbox One, as Trials of the Blood Dragon came out in June.

GameSpot's Blood Dragon review scored it an 8.5/10.

"You don't have to love the decade of Rubik's Cubes and Pac-Man Fever to get a kick out of Blood Dragon. But if you do, then all the better: this action-packed shooter will strike all the right synth-pop power chords," reviewer Kevin VanOrd said.

There are now more than 200 games in the Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup, all of which can be seen here. Microsoft does not release new titles into the program on a set schedule, but instead whenever they are ready.
