Call of Duty 2 and Bomberman Live: Battlefest Come to Backwards Compatibility

Call of Duty 2 and Bomberman Live: Battlefest

If you’re looking for a bit of nostalgia nowadays, you can now find Call of Duty 2 and Bomberman Live: Battlefest on the Xbox One backwards compatibility service. These two games are only the most recent to come onto the service, which started a year ago and has gotten nearly 200 games onto its roster. The announcements came from Major Nelson and the official Xbox’s respective Twitter pages.

Call of Duty 2 was one of the first Call of Duty games on the Xbox 360, and had a companion game, Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, released on the original Xbox console. These was back when Call of Duty games were developed by a number of different studios, before the “Infinity Ward to Treyarch” cycle truly began with Modern Warfare.

Bomberman Live: Battlefest wasn’t as well-reviewed as Call of Duty 2, but did apparently get enough of a cult following to get put on the Xbox One backwards compatibility service.

Call of Duty 2 and Bomberman Live: Battlefest can both help to likely tide you over until the holiday game rush, if you’re not one of those people that is eagerly waiting for Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, or Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Other games available on the Xbox One backwards compatibility service include Beyond Good and Evil HD, Bayonetta, Red Dead: Redemption, Just Cause 2, Shadow Complex, and more, most of them available for 14.99 USD. If you’re up for one of these classic games, in addition to Call of Duty 2 and Bomberman Live: Battlefest, all you have to do is find the Backwards Compatibility section in the Xbox Store.

While Major Nelson hasn’t revealed what sort of games will come to the backwards compatibility service next, there’s no telling of what games will be coming, especially if Xbox decides to place other highly-requested games like Red Dead Redemption onto the service, such as the other Call of Duty: Modern Warfare games, or other party games that are like Bomberman.
