Xbox Live program director Larry Hryb has announced eight new backwards-compatible games for the Xbox One. Bethesda’s action RPG Fallout: New Vegas spearheads the fresh batch of titles added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list.
The game was released back in 2010 for Xbox 360, PS3 and Microsoft Windows. It’s the fourth major installment in the highly-successful Fallout video game franchise, but not a direct sequel to 2008’s Fallout 3. The game is set four years after Fallout 3, but no characters from that game showed up in Fallout: New Vegas.
The official Xbox Feedback page currently ranks Fallout: New Vegas as the ninth-most requested title fans want to add on the Xbox One backwards compatibility list, garnering a total of 78,099 votes.
Meanwhile, frontrunners Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Red Dead Redemption has racked up 176,713 and 147,459 votes, respectively. There’s still no word yet on whether or not both titles will become playable on Microsoft’s latest-generation console. While waiting for further updates, Xbox One gamers can treat themselves to these new backwards compatible games:
- Blood Knights
- Comic Jumper
- Crystal Quest
- Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara
- I Am Alive
- Joe Danger: Special Edition
- Red Faction: Battlegrounds
Game Spot reported that the aforementioned titles, as well as Fallout: New Vegas, can be purchased via the Ready to Download section on My Games and Apps on the Xbox One dashboard.
On the other hand, Those who already have physical copies of the games don’t have to spend a single dollar. All they have to do is stick the disks into the Xbox One and the console’s emulation software will do the rest of the work.
Just last week at E3 2016, the Redmond-based tech giant added Left 4 Dead, Portal 2, Flashback, Babel Rising and Brain Challenge to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list. You can check out Microsoft’s complete list of backwards compatible games here.
