Since the full-scale launch of the Xbox One backwards-compatibility program in November, gamers have enjoyed revisiting 104 Xbox 360 games with the perks of gaming on their next-gen console. Among the first wave of titles in the program were standouts like Assassin’s Creed II, Halo: Spartan Assault, Mass Effect, and Prince of Persia. On Thursday, Microsoft confirmed a slate of ten more titles joining the program.
Announced via the Xbox website, the latest additions to Xbox One’s backwards-compatibility library include Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Soulcalibur, and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Gamers planning to add the latter to their collection, can also take advantage of the free CD Projekt RED RPG bonus which will be free until February 5, 2016.
Upon launching Xbox One’s backwards-compatibility program, Microsoft initially set monthly release dates to for new games. According to Game Rant, it now appears that the company is moving away from that approach, and instead rolling out new games as soon as they’ve “received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval.”
In conjunction with announcing the new games added to the program, Microsoft has also launched an official page for Xbox One Backwards Compatibility on the Xbox Wire. The page provides updates on the program’s recently released titles and also serves as a hub for additional content that includes “spotlight stories” on popular games.
