Xbox One Backward Compatibility Getting a Huge Update Today

by Robert Workman


Although we didn’t get any new Xbox One backward compatible titles for the holiday season, it appears that Microsoft is more than making up for it today, as a tremendous new update is now available that brings several hit titles to the system, from the Xbox 360 library.

Today, Xbox One members will be able to play seven new titles to add to their library, which should be added today if they haven’t been already. These include a pair of highly enjoyed Battlefield games from EA, as well as what many consider the best Ghostbusters game on the market – the 2009 release from Atari that features Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and the rest of the cast, reunited for a third time around.

The seven games are as follows:

Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Battlefield 3 (disc version)

Dragon Age: Origins


Scrap Metal

The Splatters


Dragon Age is also a pretty big deal to fans out there, as it’s considered one of the best games in the series, even with Inquisition making the rounds on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. But the big ones are obviously the Battlefield games, even though Battlefield 3 requires the disc to play, since it’s so immense in size. No biggie – just load it in and get to playing!

As for other updates that are coming down the line, it appears that Microsoft could have equally big updates arriving with each week. Hopefully this means that hits like Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and fan favorite Call of Duty: Black Ops II will arrive. Fingers crossed!

Meanwhile, check out the other games now! We’ve included a trailer for the awesome Ghostbusters game below!
