Six More Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Games Now Available

It's a good day for fans of horror and hunting games.

114 Comments

Xbox One's list of backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games grows by six today--and hopefully you like Dead Space or any of the games from outdoor retailer Cabela's.

Both Dead Space 2 and 3 are now playable on Xbox One. They join the original Dead Space, which was already backwards-compatible, meaning all three core entries in the series are now playable on the system, as is the spinoff Dead Space Ignition.

Today's other additions are four Cabela's-branded games: Hunting Expeditions, Dangerous Hunts 2013, Alaskan Adventures, and Survival: Shadows of Katmai.

If you already own any of these games digitally, they'll show up in your Ready to Download list of the My Games and Apps section on Xbox One. Alternatively, you can pick them up through the Xbox Store or simply pop the physical disc into the system.

Other recent additions have included TimeShift, Contra, RoboBlitz, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. For a look at every Xbox 360 game that can be played on Xbox One, check out the full list of backwards-compatible games.

@novaprime1985: I doubt they will release halo 3 and 4. m$ expects you to buy that master chief collection.

Do the demanders actually even play the BC games? Every week they announce a bunch yet there's always the "I want game X!" crowd with their voices.

The irony here is that they have added a big bunch of games I've wanted in BC. Have I played them since? No. Sure I wanna scream for Ninja Gaiden 2 to come. Would I play play it? Probably not, at least in ages.

Sony needs to learn from M$. oh well i will turn to emulation on PC instead. And i will be buying a X1 just for BC lol

@KillzoneSnake: Thats one of the reasons i recently got an XBone, and its pretty cool... Except if you want to buy a backwards compatible game digitally, Microsoft GOUGES you. They want 50 bucks for CoD Black Ops 2?!?

But its a great feature overall. I recommend it.

@Alecmrhand: no they dont.lol

It was on sale for 15bucks the other day normally 360 games run for 20bucks.

Hey they have to make their money some how. I'm sure you could always find just the game by itself on amazon for a dollar or two.

If you've never played DEAD SPACE: Ignigtion..............DON'T!!!!! It's quite simply an utterly terrible game and has no elements of Dead Space gameplay in it. You cannot get those hours of your life back. You have been warned.

@devilmaycryyyy: God call...with Crackdown 3 around the corner some might think making previous entries compatible would be a logical move from MS

@sladakrobot: Perhaps the lack of the original "Crackdown" is a statement on just how "around the corner" the new game actually isn't.

Sweet! I've been waiting for Dead Space b/c before I buy an XB1. Now, if only my local Best Buy had some in stock!

The first 15-20min of Dead Space 2 is some of the best action-horror ever put into a game. ...and the last level is like they turned the amazing world of Hellbound/Hellraiser into something you can play. The "middle third" of the game is a bit slow, but worth playing through.

DS3 is absolutely best with a regularly-scheduled co-op partner, and whoever plays "the other guy" is in for an amazing treat. Sure, there's really ony one level that feels like a horror game, but the rest is still satisfying co-op progression-action.

@hotwog21: You're not making any sense. First of all, it's drip feed because MS need to go with the individual game's producers and dev'swishes etc...it's not up to MS but to the makers of the games.

And how on earth is it a scam?? You either have the 360 game, or you can buy the 360 game, and it runs on your One. Where's the "scam" bit?

Did you want the One to spot just a save game file on your 360 HD and decide that was evidence enough that you owed the game? Or were you thinking that the One would actually read 360 discs?

Well, at least you can play Dead Space saga now. It's a good horror game with something fun to do, shoot space zombies. If you want to say this isn't an horror game because you have guns, get the head of your arse.

Dishwasher games please, it's not fair that those good little games can only be playable in 360

@santinegrete: I found the first game to be the only one that was anything close to scary out of the 3.

@deviltaz35: get the head outta your... jk :D

Yeah, weapons felt more like tools there, they're too overkill in 2. The first Dead Space was a masterpiece.

@santinegrete: It was indeed , if only more games weren't made like that.

@deviltaz35: Yeah, that's true. Playing Dead Space on Impossible is pretty intense. I love Dead Space 2 just as much as the first, but Dead Space 2 is very much an action game, and three takes it a step further in the action direction. The reason I believe the first was as intense as it was compared to the other two is that the A.I. worked differently. I haven't seen anyone compare it before, but if you play them, you will notice that in the first, the necromorph's can actually jump back into vents, while in two and three that doesn't happen, so this makes it so you have no idea where it's best to stand at times, since you can be focusing on an incoming enemy in front of you, but have the feeling an enemy will pop out right next to you or be coming at you from behind.

@NTM23: Yeah it had that feeling of the movie Alien lol

@NTM23: DS1 has that feeling of isolation that 2 lacked, and making Isaac talk was a bad decision if you ask me. He has no personality.

@moistcarrot: I don't agree, I think them putting a voice on Isaac was totally fine. Gunner Wright did a great job, though unfortunately, it couldn't work with three since that writing was pretty bad in spots. I didn't play Dead Space for its horror, just like I don't watch the Alien films for the horror. I don't really find them that scary, but they're great sci-fi's in my opinion. DS2 going into a more action direction didn't bother me. Three going into an even more action direction didn't bother me either, but it just wasn't that great.

@PrpleTrtleBuBum: Conkers bad Fur Day, Teddies with guns gave me nightmares lol. The original Dead Space was pretty freaky at times.

Cool. Dead Space and Dead Space 2 are some of my favorite games; I've beaten the first and second game around fifteen times, which is a lot, I don't beat any game that many times anymore. Dead Space 3 is okay (comparatively, though good overall, in my opinion, just a huge disappointment).
