Three new near-classic Xbox 360 games have just been made available on the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility service. The new backwards compatible games are Dragon Age Origins, Battlefield 3, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. These are only the first games that are going to be put on the Xbox One backwards compatibility service this year.
The new backwards compatible games were announced by Major Nelson (also known as Larry Hryb) on his Twitter account.
Dragon Age: Origins is the first entry into the Dragon Age series by BioWare, and is something of a departure from many of the BioWare games of the time. Instead of being the dialogue wheel of Mass Effect (or the one that Dragon Age would later get) it was more of a callback to Knights of the Old Republic, being combat dependent on dice rolls with a number of smaller dialogue responses, rather than the dialogue wheel system of current BioWare games.
Battlefield 3 and Battlefield Bad Company 2 are seen as two of the best Battlefield games in recent memory, with Bad Company 2 being highly regarded by many Battlefield fans due to its destructible environments and multiplayer, which have sense been implemented into other Battlefield games and even became a major part of Battlefield 4’s multiplayer due to the Levelution system.
All three of these new backwards compatible games can be found on the Xbox One Store under the backwards compatibility label, which will sell them for a decreased price and will also likely include some small graphical updates.
These three triple-A games aren’t the only ones that are being added to the program either. Four other Xbox 360 games from the old Xbox store are going to be added as well: Strania, The Splatters, Ghostbusters, and Scrap Metal.
If any of these games appeal to you, you can find them in the Xbox Store for yourself.
