Microsoft promised more rapid fire releases for their Xbox One Backwards Compatibility list, and they seem to be delivering, launching three new games for the service this morning. Trials HD, Sam & Max Byond Time & Space, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, and LEGO Batman.
Microsoft recently shifted their Xbox One Backwards Compatibility release plans, making it so that games appear as soon as they are ready, rather than waiting for large drops every month. However, with these four all seemingly hitting around the same time, they might be lumping releases together in some fashion.
The addition of these games brings the total number of Xbox 360 games that are backwards compatible on Xbox One up to 134. For a feature that no one knew existed less than a year ago, Microsoft has certainly been pushing games onto the service very quickly. Going from a newly announced program at E3 2015, to full release in November, we’ve seen Xbox One Backwards Compatibility grow quite significantly in those short months.
Of course, fans still have some complaints with the program, the main one being the lack of certain games. More are definitely coming, but the recent leak of Red Dead Redemption has many wondering why the game isn’t available yet. Microsoft is still working out the multitude of factors necessary for a proper release it seems, so we’ll just have to be patient.
