New additions to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility catalog for today, October 20, include The Orange Box (containing Half Life 2: Episode 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal), Galaga Legions, and Joe Danger 2: The Movie. These were announced on Twitter today by the usual source, Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb.
If you already own any of the games on Xbox 360, they should show up automatically on your Xbox One. They are also available to purchase on the console or via Xbox.com through the links below.
One thing to note is that Team Fortress 2 on console has not received the same kind of ongoing support as the PC version, so be aware of that.
The Xbox One's backwards compatibility feature launched in November 2015 with the New Xbox One Experience update. Microsoft has added new titles on a regular basis since then--you can see all 250-plus games in the catalog here.
Just recently, Xbox boss Phil Spencer was asked if Call of Duty: Black Ops II--the most-requested title on the Xbox Feedback site--would be added to the program. He did not confirm anything but said conversations are ongoing about adding more third-party games to the catalog.
