Xbox One Adds New Backwards Compatible Game

The Hitman HD Pack is now playable on Xbox One.

10 Comments

Another Xbox 360 game is joining Xbox One's growing backwards compatible library. The latest addition is the Hitman HD Pack. The game will be playable on Microsoft's current-gen console as of today, May 9, Major Nelson announced on Twitter.

The Hitman HD Pack consists of two games--Hitman: Contracts and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. Both titles initially released on PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox, the former in 2004 and the latter in 2002. These versions have been remastered with HD visuals and other touch-ups. You can read more about each in our original Hitman: Contracts review and Hitman 2: Silent Assassin review.

If you still own a physical copy of Hitman HD Pack, you can pop the disc into your Xbox One to initiate a download and begin playing on the console. If you're interested in picking it up, the game is also available for purchase from the system's digital store for $25.

The Hitman HD Pack isn't the only new game to receive backwards compatible support with Xbox One recently. Earlier this week, Microsoft added Costume Quest and From Dust to the BC library, while the week prior brought Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge and Trials Evolution.

Xbox One is just awful, this is coming from someone who owns one. The system did not live up to the success of it's predecessor.

One should have had full game backward compatibility but it doesn't. Last month I played MK9 to get caught up in prep for MK11, of course I couldn't play MK9 on my One, not compatible, had to play on the 360.

@c_smithii Well I love my Xbox One X and I like it better than my PS4! Yes I love backwards compatability too! The PS4 is for Playstation exclusive content only the rest I buy for my X because they look and play better on it period. Everybody has an opinion:P

@creepshow2: Ha, your like me. I pay for online service & get free games on my XB1x, and reap all my precious XB360 backwards compatible games and awesome multiplayer games. MS won me over for their BC after I had scorned them for their idiotic DRM at the beginning of the gen. console wars. I have 2x PS4's, but I only use them for exclusives & quite honestly I get bored of them really quickly, as online multi-player is where it is at on my XB1x with some gorgeous grfx.

$25 seems a bit much for something so old.
