Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is finally backwards compatible on Xbox One. The program has been steadily growing every month, but this 2012 fantasy RPG is a particularly nice addition, especially since a remaster doesn’t seem to be in the cards at this point. A little generic perhaps, but charming and fun nonetheless.
Leaked on Friday and now confirmed by Microsoft through IGN, these are the first original Xbox games that will be available through Xbox One backwards compatibility on October 24. Not pictured but also due tomorrow is Black, bringing the total to 13. Which games do you want to see added to the list?
Fallout New Vegas is now backwards compatible on Xbox One, which is great timing really, because this summer heat sure does make me wish for a nuclear winter.
Ducktales Remastered, Hexic 2, Magic 2012, Domino Master, and Unbound Saga are now backwards compatible on Xbox One. Two other backwards compatible games, XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Super Meat Boy, are part of next month’s Games With Gold.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut, Frogger 2, Final Fight: Double Impact, Faery: Legends of Avalon, and Puzzlegeddon are now backwards compatible on Xbox One, the company announced today. That new trailer for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided sure got me in the mood for sneaking around...
Samurai Showdown 2, Runner 2, Phantasy Star 2, and Sonic & Knuckles are now backwards compatible on Xbox One, Microsoft announced today. Even if people aren’t really using backwards compatibility, it’s nice to see the library getting updated every few days. Do you use it?
Monaco and DOOM 3 BFG Edition are now backwards compatible on Xbox One, the company announced today. The list seems to grow every few days, and if Microsoft can keep pace, it’ll be an impressive library by the end of 2016.
Dead Space is backwards compatible on Xbox One, as of today. If you don’t already own a copy of the horror shooter, hold on; the game will be part of the Games With Gold lineup next month.
Microsoft announced today that Assassin’s Creed, Dark Void, and GRID 2 are now backwards compatible on Xbox One. The company seems to be adding more games at a decent clip, but I’m still waiting on Red Dead Redemption...
Dark Souls will soon be backwards compatible on Xbox One, according to the Australian pre-order page for Dark Souls 3. I’m still waiting on a HD remaster of Demon’s Souls, honestly.
