Xbox One Backward Compatibility Adds More Ghost Recon and Assassin’s Creed
Over 500 Xbox 360 and original Xbox games now playable on Xbox One.
The already massive Xbox One Backward Compatibility catalog is growing once again with Microsoft announcing two big additions to the popular service. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter and Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD have been added today, bringing the total number of backward compatible games well above 500 (my count shows 521 exactly).
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter was one of the Xbox 360’s earliest and biggest hits. Arriving in 2006, the game showed the power of the new generation of consoles. The game never went to the PS3, instead just launching across older gen systems and the Xbox 360. The game was well received among fans and critics and helped keep the Ghost Recon franchise popular with its shift to consoles.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation was meant to be a PlayStation Vita exclusive, but spread to other platforms due to the system’s lack of sales. This HD re-release brought the game to the Xbox 360 and now owners can play it on their Xbox One. As usual, with digital games like this you can just download the title starting today. If you own either game on physical disc you can just insert it into your Xbox One to prompt the download.
The Xbox One Backward Compatibility feature keeps growing, so check back soon for more updates.
