The big Xbox One update that will bring over backwards compatibility and tons of other new features has now received a definite release date in November.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb made an announcement on Twitter that the big Xbox One update will arrive on November 12th for all console owners. This is two days after the big releases for both Fallout 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

There will be well over 100 Xbox 360 games that will be compatible for the Xbox One. The list includes games such as Mass Effect 2, Burnout Paradise, Viva Pinata plus a host of other popular titles.

However, the types of games that won’t work are Kinect titles and games that have yet to get permission from their publishers. The latter games might be compatible in the near future once all the legal stuff gets cleared.

The big Xbox One update is not just adding backwards compatibility either. There will also be an all-new UI that will match that of Windows 10. The update includes several new features for console owners to enjoy.

November should be a busy time for gamers. Apart from the update and Fallout 4 plus Rise of the Tomb Raider, it will also see the release of Star Wars Battlefront and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
