Xbox’s Larry Hryb has announced five more games joining the Xbox One backward compatibility catalogue. Players can look forward to a few Xbox Live Arcade titles as well as Ubisoft games like Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and Blazing Angels.
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is already playable on Xbox One thanks to the Ezio Collection, which has remastered versions of Assassin’s Creed 2, Brotherhood, and Revelations. While it may seem odd that the original Xbox 360 version is now being made backward compatible, this isn’t the first time this has happened.
Blazing Angels is a World War II flight simulator developed by Ubisoft that released way back in 2006. As noted on the backward compatibility list on Larry Hryb’s website, Blazing Angels is available on disc or if previously purchased.
The remaining three games are all Xbox Live Arcade titles. Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram is a remake of the classic mech fighting game developed by Sega with HD graphics. Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is an arcade shooter and sequel to Capcom’s Commando. Lastly, Radiant Silvergun is a vertically scrolling shoot ‘em up that tasks players with defending earth from hostile threats.
The backward compatibility program on Xbox One offers hundreds of older games to be enjoyed on the current console. Now that the hectic week of E3 is in the past, more backward compatible games should be announced regularly.
