Backwards compatibility is heading to Xbox One this fall, with a pile of over 100 games ready to go. The list grows every day, as upcoming games like Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Fallout 4, Rainbow Six Siege and Just Cause 3 are accompanied by their previous generation iterations as free bonuses.
Adding to that list at gamescom was the announcement that all future Xbox 360 Games with Gold games will be backward compatible. Each month sees two Xbox One and two Xbox 360 games added to Xbox Live’s Games with Gold library, and now we won’t even have to pull out our old consoles to take advantage of the free stuff.
During the announcement, background slides specifically called out Halo, Gears of War, Fable, Crackdown, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, Kameo and Mass Effect as being part of that upcoming list, along with third-party support from publishers like Bandai Namco, Bethesda, Deep Silver, Disney, Majesco, Sega, Square Enix, 2K, Capcom, Ubisoft, Koei Tecmo, Codemasters, and Warner Bros. Interactive. That’s a good list to get our brains cranking on what might be coming.
Backwards compatibility hits this November with the fall Xbox One system update.
