Xbox One Adds 2 Backwards Compatible Games This Week
Xbox One's BC library continues to grow.
Two more Xbox 360 games have joined Xbox One's growing backwards compatible library. Major Nelson has announced that Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and Port Royale 3: Pirates & Merchants are both now playable on Microsoft's current-generation.
Both of this week's BC games originally released in 2012. Lego Batman 2 is a humorous open-world adventure that sees the Caped Crusader team up with other DC heroes like Superman and Wonder Woman to save Gotham from the combined threat of Joker and Lex Luthor. Port Royale 3, meanwhile, is a simulation game that cast players in the role of a sea captain.
As usual, if you have a physical copy of either game, you can pop the disc into your Xbox One, which will initiate a download allowing you to play them on the console. On the other hand, if you've previously purchased either game digitally, you'll find them automatically waiting in the Ready to Download section of the console's My Games and Apps tab.
Microsoft has been steadily adding new backwards compatible games nearly every week this month. Other recent additions include Battlestations Pacific, Fuel, and Rayman Raving Rabbids, as well as two Command and Conquer games, Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3. You can see the full list of Xbox One BC games here.
In other Xbox news, Microsoft recently announced February's free Games with Gold. Beginning February 1, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon and Assassin's Creed Rogue, with Super Bomberman R and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy following later in the month. A big Assassin's Creed sale is also underway in the Microsoft Store.
