Microsoft has announced a batch of titles joining the Xbox One backwards compatibility library. Topping the list is the much-requested Doritos Crash Course, a longtime favorite among fans of chips and other snacks.
Also joining the ranks are lesser known titles like Halo: Reach, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Fable III.
Halo is the most requested of the games in this batch by a large margin, ranked fifth on the official charts for backwards compatibility, with just Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption, and a couple Call of Duty games ahead of it. This is also the only big Halo game that wasn’t part of the Master Chief Collection released in 2014, meaning that all Halo games are now playable on Xbox One in some form or another.
Some awesome Xbox Live Arcade games are part of this update as well. Peggle and Spelunky will definitely be going back into regular rotation on my Xbox One – sorry Peggle 2, you just don’t quite stack up. Portal: Still Alive, Braid, and Double Fine’s tower defense mecha hybrid Iron Brigade are all in the list as well.
These titles are available today.
But seriously, Doritos Crash Course? Who went into the back catalog and thought “let’s bring this one back?” I hope the next update includes Sneak King.
