Eleven new Xbox backwards compatibility games have now come to the Xbox One, allowing Xbox One players to revisit some classics from Microsoft’s first big console. If you live in Europe and have an Xbox One, you’ll also be getting an additional title. The games cover a wide range of genres.
These games that recently came out are actually the third wave of games from the original Xbox that have come to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility service. Previous waves like the one in October included games like Psychonauts, Prince of Persia, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Last week other games were added that included The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Jade Empire, and Conker: Live and Reloaded.
This week, the eleven new Xbox backwards compatibility games include Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Destroy All Humans, the original Star Wars Battlefront games, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, and Star Wars: Republic Commando, many of which were classics in their day or still retain that legendary feeling today, like the Knights of the Old Republic games that catapulted Bioware and Obsidian into the spotlight.
If you’re unhappy with the way that Electronic Arts has handled the Battlefront games, you can also play the old Battlefront games, which are still perfectly fun (and have a lot of players!) in their own right, not to mention that they don’t have microtransactions themselves.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is also a good bit of fun, as you play a novice Jedi in the days of the Original Trilogy and are able to take art in fast-paced and chaotic lightsaber duels against the Dark Jedi of the Cult of Ragnos.
You can pick up any of these new Xbox backwards compatibility games now on your Xbox One, or if you still have those CDs, just pop them in the console and you can play them for free!
