The Xbox One backwards compatibility program was introduced back in 2015 and has brought us a quality selection of games from the Xbox 360’s library that are fully playable on the Xbox One. The much requested Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was finally made backwards compatible last month and now it has actually received an update on Xbox One as well.
From the very start, there have been a number of games that have been requested more than any others, with the two Call of Duty: Black Ops games being near the top. We got the first Black Ops awhile ago, but it wasn’t until mid-April that we finally got the sequel added.
The team in charge of backwards compatibility has done a good job in the past of improving games on Xbox One through followup patch updates and that is exactly what they have done here as well. According to GearNuke, a new update has been made available for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on Xbox One that you can download right now.
This update comes in at around 700 MB and reportedly fixes anti-aliasing in the game that was causing jagged edges compared to the Xbox 360 version. In addition, they said that there are reports of input lag also being improved in this patch, but there is no real confirmation for that part at this point.
It is really fantastic to see Xbox continuing to support older games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 as they release on Xbox One through backwards compatibility. A game such as this has had some really incredible numbers of people online since it was added last month, which we assume will continue for awhile.
Are there any other Xbox 360 games that are backwards compatible on Xbox One that you think need a patch to improve its performance? Make sure to let us know in the comments below.
