Today, Major Nelson announced via Twitter, that a bevy of new games are now available on Xbox One via the system’s backward compatibility.
Fans of open-world action games or the Just Cause series will be happy to know that they can now play the game that started it all, on their Xbox One. And fans of the Castlevania series’ most recent venture into 3D will also be thrilled to know they can reprise their role as Gabriel Belmont with Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate HD, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 all making their debut on the backward compatible catalog.
Earlier this month it was also announced Crytek’s Crysis trilogy was available via backward compatibility.
For those unversed in how backwards compatibility works, if you already owned the games digitally on Xbox 360 and are using the same profile, they are automatically added to your library. You can also pop in a Xbox 360 disc to download the games manually, or just buy new digital copies of the games from the marketplace.
If you still haven’t played any of the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow titles, be sure to check out our reviews for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 which received (for the most part) positively sanguine reviews.
