Next Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games Arrive, See Them Here

Dark Souls and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 have joined the program.

67 Comments

Two more Xbox 360 games have been added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library. As announced today by Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, the games are Dark Souls and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Back in February, Bandai Namco announced that Dark Souls would join the lineup.

The games arrive in the lineup on the same day that the Xbox One was updated to include a new store where you can search for, buy, and download backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games.

No Caption Provided

As announced previously, everyone who preorders a digital copy of Dark Souls III for Xbox One gets a free copy of Dark Souls' Xbox 360 version, playable through backwards compatibility.

This is the second time Microsoft has added new titles to the program this week, as the company released Assassin's Creed and Dark Void on Monday. There is no set schedule for when new games will be added. As Microsoft said previously, titles are added as soon as they are ready, not on a monthly basis.

You can see all of the 140-plus backwards-compatible Xbox One games here.

Microsoft has said it is holding discussions with all major publishers and developers to possibly bring their games to the program, so if your favorite game hasn't been added yet, there is still hope. Ultimately, the decision about whether or not a game is added to the lineup comes down to individual publishers.

XBOX 360 backwards compatibility is perhaps the best thing to happen in this console generation.

Im still wondering about what happened to Burnout Paradise. They said it was coming to BC, and it hasn't been mentioned since.

Too bad about 30% of these games run like absolute garbage on their 360 simulator software.

Nice list of games. Need to download Borderlands to my XB1. I've been playing Torchlight again. Glad I could just download my save from the cloud and continue playing from where I left off. Going to start playing Just Cause 3 next when I have a minute.

@gutkiller: Say it with me. I'm Salty!!!!! LOL!! Of course gamers are playing XBox 360 games on their XB1. It's awesome. I can now delete many of my Digital Games off my XBox 360 and made room for more free 360 games.

@blackace: maby it's because you Xbox gamers don't have any real games to play so you just keep playing what Microsoft gives you Microsoft tells you to play old games you will do it the thing with playing 360 games is that they look like shit so do the old ps2 and 3 games have you seen the star wars battlefront in 4k the game is shit but it looks legit and that is something you Xbox fags will never have so keep remembering the good old days of the 360 the 360 graphics while we all move on

Why do you have to have such a clickbaity title and thumbnail? Just say the game's names in the posts title.

@spazicle: Clickbaity titles = clicks, and clicks = monies. Just being able to see the games in the headline as you scroll past means you won't be shown any additional ads, and without ads the site can't afford to stay free.

Mind you, I agree that clickbaity titles are the suck, but they're there for a reason.

Best tip I ever got in the game: After you are transported from the intro/training area to the "mainland", GO UP THE STAIRS ALONG THE CLIFF and work your way into the giant bridge... Don't go down into the graveyard, don't go down the cave-elevator, and don't get crazy with all the other stuff in front of you yet.

That tip alone should similarly help all those people who tried the game and found it rage-quittingly "impossible" on their first try. I.e., "there IS a recommended beginning path." Don't worry about your first character class much (I like Pyromancer and Thief, personally). Just explore -- and get naked when you feel like you need to dodge/roll faster. ;)

Cool, now I may finally get to try to get back in what little I got done in Dark Souls.

It's nice that the majority of recent additions have been retail games and not just indie/arcade titles. Not saying indies are bad or anything, just nice to see more balance.

@lifegee13: Bandai Namco probably wants people to buy the remastered DS2. Doubt MS has much control over that.

@Zicoroen:

Would be good, but I doubt that they will give it for free, unless MS do a deal somehow.

Especially when they are re releasing other games and charging for them.

YAY for Dark Souls! Now give me RDR and Dragon's Dogma and I'll never ask for anything ever again. Promise.

@skyhighgam3r: Not going to happen anytime soon as that is an ORIGINAL Xbox game which is not supported and no immediate plans to do so.

@dlCHIEF58:

Oh gee thanks captain obvious because 'I didn't know what system the game I'm talking about is on'....

Also, as far as precedent goes, they've already said they are looking into how they could bring Original XBOX games to the system.

@skyhighgam3r: You'd be surprised at how many people fall into that category (i.e. not knowing what they are talking about), so it does warrant mentioning. Good for you that you know what system your games play on, wanna cookie or gold star for that?

Yes they did say they were "looking into it"… and that is it at this point. There are no announced plans to make it happen if they can do it at all. It is technically possible (and should be easier than 360 emulation), but if they take a similar route like that done with the 360 emulation then licensing issues would be much worse to tackle due to the age of the games and licenses involved.

@dlCHIEF58: JSRF might not be supported, but JSR was on 360 arcade, he can have that.

Excellent! I just bought Tekken Tag 2 yesterday. I hope MS continue the recently increased pace of BC releases.

Wow arriving thick and fast now! I knew having the 360 store available through the X1 would make the difference

@Barighm: Difference is you have an option to buy games you dont already own. They're not forcing you to pay for games you already own.

@Barighm: yes it is, but the point is by having the ability to purchase the games on the same console will satisfy the publishers to grant the license
