The Orange box was one of the best gaming deals available on the market back when it launched nearly a decade ago, and today it has been made available to play on Xbox One through backwards compatibility. The collection contains a handful of popular Valve games, with one of them being the critically-acclaimed Half-Life 2.

Xbox’s Major Nelson once again made the announcement through Twitter, which you can check out by clicking right here. For those who don’t know, the full collection of games included in The Orange Box are the following:

  • Half-Life 2
  • Half-Life 2: Episode 1
  • Half-Life 2: Episode 2
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Portal

If you already own The Orange Box on Xbox 360, then you should have a download for the backwards compatible version waiting for you when you boot up your Xbox One. The games included in The Orange Box aren’t the only ones that have been added to the backwards compatibility list this week, however, as Joe Danger 2: The Movie and Galaga Legions have also joined.

The Half-Life series was most recently in the headlines when some code was spotted in the Steam VR app that seemed to suggest that development had been going on for a Half-Life VR game. You can learn more about that by clicking right here.
