Backwards Compatible Call of Duty: Ghosts Now Available On Xbox One

You can now get the backwards compatible Call of Duty: Ghosts game on the Xbox One following an announcement by Major Nelson (otherwise known as Larry Hyrb) on the internet earlier today. Call of Duty: Ghosts is the second-to-last entry in the series from Infinity Ward and was released in 2013.

Call of Duty: Ghosts tells the story of an America on the ropes, after the entire American Southwest is obliterated by a series of kinetic strikes from their own superweapon. Facing the staggering military might of a South America united under a Venezuelan dictatorship, you serve as part of the elite Ghosts special forces unit, trying to stop the Federation from gaining any more ground.

The game, a departure from the Modern Warfare series, got mostly positive reviews, but is seen as a fairly forgettable Call of Duty with a bad story and no real new mechanics. However, it was apparently popular enough to to be put on the Xbox One backwards compatibility list.

A backwards compatible Call of Duty: Ghosts wouldn’t be the first Call of Duty game that got put on the Xbox One’s list. Other Call of Duty games like the first two Black Ops games, the Modern Warfare games, and more have already been ported to the Xbox One, so Ghosts shouldn’t be any different.

If you want to download the backwards compatible Call of Duty: Ghosts game, you can either do it for free if you own a copy of the game for the Xbox 360, or you can buy it off of the Xbox One’s store in the backwards compatibility section along with any of the other available Call of Duty games.

Call of Duty: Ghosts being backwards compatible comes only a few days after five other games were added to the backwards compatibility list, such as Radiant Silvergun and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
