To celebrate Xbox’s 20th Anniversary, Microsoft has announced 76 new backward compatible titles are now playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series X. Both original Xbox and Xbox 360 titles are included in the update and are comprised of both fan favorites – such as the Max Payne series, F.E.AR., Ridge Racer 6 and Skate 2 – and some rather obscure titles.

The news was announced during the ‘Xbox Anniversary Celebration’ Livestream by Peggy Lo, the Compatability Program Lead for Xbox. “You asked for more games to join our backward compatibility catalog, from the biggest blockbusters to cult classics. And, we listened!” she stated, following an emotional look back at Microsoft’s 2015 E3 conference. “Today, we are celebrating our anniversary by adding more than 70 original Xbox and Xbox 360 games to our backward compatibility catalog.”

All 76 Xbox and Xbox 360 backward compatible titles will support Xbox Series X/S’s ‘Auto HDR’ feature, which enhances the vibrance of colors and overall luminosity of older titles. Each title will also receive a resolution boost of 4x on Xbox Series X, 3x on Xbox Series S and 2x on Xbox One consoles.
