Xbox One's library of backwards compatible games has grown a little larger today. Microsoft's Major Nelson revealed via Twitter that another pair of Xbox 360 games are now playable on the current-gen console.

Headlining the new batch of backwards compatible titles is Hitman: Blood Money, the 2005 installment in the stealth-action series. It arrives alongside Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, the 2011 Lego Star Wars game inspired by the Clone Wars animated series. You can learn more about the titles in GameSpot's original Hitman: Blood Money review and Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars review.

As usual, if you own a physical copy of either game, you can now pop the disc in your Xbox One to initiate a download and start playing. If you own either digitally, you will find it waiting in the Ready to Download section of the My Games and Apps menu. Like all other backwards compatible titles, you can also purchase the games from the Xbox Store.

Microsoft has been regularly adding new Xbox 360 games to Xbox One's backwards compatible catalog. Other recent additions include Vanquish and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. A small handful of original Xbox games are also backwards compatible on Xbox One, though those will be added much less frequently than 360 titles, with the next batch not slated to arrive until sometime this spring. You can find the full list of Xbox One backwards compatible games here.

@Huglyone: I doubt they bring LA Noire to backwards capability considering you can buy an xbox one version.

If Games with Gold is doing another Star Wars game in May again this year, I guess we know which one it will be this time.

It's not a bad game, just a little off the beaten path compared to other Lego games.

EA, I will straight up chop off a nut and FedEx it to you if you give us some BC on Fight Night already. Better yet, give us a NEW Fight Night game and I'll lop off my left nip and send it express, with the nut.

@aross2004: It might be licensing issues preventing that being added.

I saw that the three 360 Crysis games are on sale and got my hopes up only to see another couple of games I don't care about get added today.

@CrossbonesGT: Yes, it is the exact same game just with a different label sold in a different package. What is on the disc is the same as the original release.

@customx5: I've been waiting since it's EU release for DC in 2001... but I backed it so when you finish it "Dr Vancouver" will be in the credits <3

I sure as shit hope that next Xbox supports these same games out of the box. The BC starts to be on level that could warrant throwing X360 in trash compactor and getting S, but it's still missing a few key ones (Niiiiinja GAIDEN!) and the rumors of PS5/X2 are getting pretty heavy. Almost feels like when I was really thinking of buying Wii U but rumors were strong that it's already in the abattoir.

Considering technologic leaps are getting kind of unnoticeable, I'd love if the X2 launch bonus was a list of 100 new BC games. If the thing made my X0 and X360 obsolete I'd probably run to nearest store and pay $700 just for that convenience

@rekt_tombraider: EXACTLY.

Consider that as of the Xbox One, these are native Win10 applications running native DirectX. All the emulation necessary for 360 HW/SAL and OGXB HW/SAL are done. That work doesn't need to be done again. The reason why even tiny 360 indie games are hundreds of MB is because the emulator app is bundled into each one.

All future platform work is planned to be likewise Win10+DirectX. This was BillG's original mandate, and after about 10 years they got it right.

@rekt_tombraider: Uh, no you didn't put MW2 in the X since the MW1,2&3 are the only 360 CoDs that are not backwards compatible.

@rekt_tombraider: I wonder if I should wait on it, since I already have Switch, PS4, and PS3... I wanted the Minecraft-themed Xbox cause I love Minecraft LOL!
