Xbox One Gets 8 New Original Xbox Backwards Compatible Games
Morrowind, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and more are now available.
It's been a long wait, but the second round of original Xbox backwards compatible games have finally arrived on Xbox One. Eight more classic Xbox titles are now playable on Microsoft's current-gen console, with another batch set to follow next week.
This week sees the arrival of some of the original Xbox's most beloved games. In addition to Bethesda's acclaimed RPG The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Xbox One owners can now play the Conker's Bad Fur Day remake, Conker: Live & Reloaded; Sega's acclaimed rail shooter, Panzer Dragoon Orta; BioWare's martial arts RPG, Jade Empire; the snowboarding game SSX 3; the first-person action game Breakdown; the time-bending platformer Blinx: The Time Sweeper; and the hack-and-slash game Hunter: The Reckoning.
If you still own the disc for any of these titles, you can pop it into your Xbox One and begin playing. The games are also available for purchase digitally from the Xbox Store. Most of them retail for US $10 / £9 / AU $14.95, while Morrowind and Hunter: The Reckoning are US $15 / £12 / AU $19.95 apiece.
This is only the first wave of original Xbox games coming to Xbox One this month. Next week, Microsoft is adding another 11 titles to the backwards compatible library, including Destroy All Humans, MX Unleashed, Full Spectrum Warrior, and an assortment of Star Wars games such as Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and Knights of the Old Republic II. You can find the full list of this month's original Xbox BC titles below.
Microsoft first announced backwards compatibility support for original Xbox games at E3 2017, although the company said those would be added much less frequently than 360 titles. The initial batch of original Xbox BC games arrived back in October and consisted of 13 titles, including Black, Psychonauts, Prince of Persia, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
