Two More Xbox One Backwards Compatible Games Now Available

Metal Gear Rising joins the list.

19 Comments

Once again, Microsoft has expanded the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library. The company today announced the addition to two more Xbox 360 games to the list of those that can be played on Xbox One.

First up is Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the action game spin-off of the Metal Gear series that is set after Metal Gear Solid 4. Developed by Bayonetta studio Platinum Games, it puts players in the role of Raiden, the widely maligned star of Metal Gear Solid 2 who is now a badass cyborg. You can read more about in GameSpot's Metal Gear Rising review.

Today's other new backwards compatible game is ScreamRide. This is the rare instance of a gaming being added that also has a native Xbox One version; ScreamRide released for both platforms at the same time back in early 2015. While the Xbox One version is the ideal one to play, at least you're now able to play your Xbox 360 copy on the system if you happen to have one lying around.

If you own a physical copy of either game, you can simply pop it into the disc drive, while digital-copy owners will find it waiting in their Ready to Download list. Alternatively, either game can be purchased from the Xbox Store.

Last week also saw several games added, with the biggest being Batman: Arkham Origins. You can see every Xbox 360 games that's supported in our full Xbox One backwards compatibility game list.

Me and my brother were just talking about this game the other day thinking they should make it a free Games with Gold game I didn't realize at the time that it hadn't yet been made backwards compatible. Now this makes me want to pick it up as I have never played it myself but I'm afraid to buy it as of now because it may be made an Xbox live Games with Gold game for Sept. Now that it has just been made backwards compatible. Also I still hold out hope that we will see the Ninja Gaiden series get added to the backwards compatibility list come on Koei Temco I know you can do it.

@gamertaurus83: The problem is MGS4 was designed for PS3. It uses the Cell Processor quite allot, and would have to be completely recoded to use on Xbox 360/Xbox One. Konami isn't going to do it, they just won't. That collection is worthless without MGS4.

Cool. I actually just recently played through Metal Gear Rising on the 360 and really enjoyed it. I'll install this on my Xbox One and give it another playthrough.

You can just download it thru the Xbox store once they add it to the backwards compatibility list it appears for sale in there unless it specifically says disc only.

I played the hell out of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance back on PS3 but playing it now on PC is were it's at!

Also Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is by far, the best spin-off Metal Gear game I enjoy back in 2013, it makes sense to bring it to Xbox One BC giving the fact that the physical version of the game only exist in NA and never in Japan.

Xbox One gamers are in for a treat.

@proxima1025:

Yea I am expecting an announcement on that at Gamescom with the added announcement that whoever pre-orders Crackdown 3 gets both 1 and 2 for free. I am almost certain that's going to happen.
