SSX and Halo 3 ODST Will Soon Be Backwards Compatible
Two new games will soon be arriving on the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility service: SSX and Halo 3 ODST. SSX is a sports game involving skiing and snowboarding, and is developed by EA. Halo 3 ODST is a side-story to Halo 3 that takes place between Halo 2 and Halo 3 as you take the role of an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper known as The Rookie, who is cut off from his squad and must track them down.
The information about the two games has come from a Reddit user that saw a card on Amazon that had both of the games for digital download on the Xbox One.
Halo 3 ODST was actually added to the Halo Master Chief Collection after its lackluster reception due to glitches and bad design, however, so if you have the Master Chief Collection you’ve likely already got ODST. It will, however, lack the multiplayer component and will only have the campaign mode, so no Firefight unfortunately.
SSX and Halo 3 ODST will be releasing in June, with SSX being released June 13, and ODST being released on June 7. However, there hasn’t been any confirmation about whether it’s true or not from Microsoft, so until we get any kind of official confirmation you’ll have to take it with a grain of salt, though hopefully Microsoft will actually confirm it soon.
The list of Xbox One backwards compatible games on the Xbox One is already up to 21 pages on the actual Xbox website, and with so many classic and well-loved games on the list Microsoft doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
SSX and Halo 3 ODST will be the two latest games in Microsoft’s Xbox One backwards compatibility list, which has had both relatively unknown games or casual ones like Geometry Wars to critically acclaimed games like Dark Souls, Bayonetta, and more.
