Three More Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Now Available

Shadowrun headlines today's additions.

30 Comments

Xbox One's list of backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games grows again today, with three more games now available.

Shadowrun and a pair of Xbox Live Arcade games--Space Ark and Shotest Shogi--can all now be played on Xbox One. If you own digital copies of any of the three, you'll find them in your Ready to Download list. Alternatively, you can pop in a game disc to play Shadowrun.

No Caption Provided

If you don't own them, all three are available for purchase from the Xbox Store. Shadowrun goes for $15, while the other two cost $10 each.

Although it didn't turn out to be an especially good game, Shadowrun was noteworthy at the time of its release for offering cross-play between the Xbox 360 and PC versions. It's an FPS take on the classic RPG series, which has since seen a revival on PC from developer Harebrained Schemes.

Other recent additions to the backwards compatibility list have included Oblivion and Injustice.

@Kei_neoblood: No, it has a cult following. I've looked up a few different Shadowrun communities and people still play. I last played in 2013 and it was easy to get in a game. I'll be getting it today for sure and see how busy it is.

Being backwards compatible should help it grow.

@hotwog21: Instead of making stupid comments - Try putting the disc of one of the many BC listed titles in your xbox one and seeing what happens?

@hotwog21: Troll much? After the download I can play RDR, Oblivion or all 3 ME games on the XB1. Not magic, just hard work by Microsoft. I own a PS4 also and am disappointed they haven't tried to do it as well.

Shadowrun was a kickass MP game. Why MS decided to close FASA Studio is beyond me.

Is Shadowrun's online still running/active? Had better be, since it's an MP-only game
