Xbox One: Two New Backwards Compatible Games Now Available
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter are now playable on Xbox One.
Microsoft continues rolling out more backwards compatible games for Xbox One. Following last week's three additions to the BC library, Major Nelson has announced that two more Xbox 360 titles are now playable on the current-gen console: Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is a home console port of the formerly Vita-exclusive title. A spin-off of Assassin's Creed III, Liberation is set in Louisiana and casts players in the role of Aveline de Grandpre, the series' first female protagonist. The HD version boasts upgraded visuals and audio, but it otherwise features the same content as the Vita release. You can read more about it in GameSpot's Assassin's Creed Liberation HD review.
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, meanwhile, is one of Xbox 360's earliest shooters, first launching for the console in 2006. It received widespread acclaim on its release, earning a 9.2/10 in GameSpot's Advanced Warfighter review for its tactical gameplay and (at the time) stunning visuals. "Even those who don't necessarily like shooters may want to at least try the game out, as GRAW represents the best of what a tactical shooter can offer and can serve as a useful graphical benchmark to judge other games on the console by," we wrote.
If you still own a physical copy of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, you can pop its disc into your Xbox One and begin playing. Likewise, if you already own a digital copy of Liberation HD or GRAW, you'll find it waiting automatically in the Ready to Download section of Xbox One's My Games and Apps area. You can also buy either of the new BC games digitally from the Microsoft Store.
Xbox One's BC library has grown steadily ever since Microsoft first introduced the feature back in 2015. It now features more than 400 Xbox 360 titles and more than 30 original Xbox games.
