Three New Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Games Reach Xbox Today

Larry Hryb, otherwise known as Major Nelson, has announced three new Xbox One backwards compatibility games have come to the service today, further icreasing the already hundreds-strong numbers of games like them that have been coming to the Microsoft console since 2014, when the company announced the service at E3 of that year.

The three new xbox One backwards compatibility games that have come include Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Aliens vs Predator, and Sonic: Unleashed, allowing a nice mixture of new games for you to pick up if you want a lighthearted game like Sonic, an epic RPG like Amalur, or a tense, action-filled game like AVP where you can play either the Xenomorphs, the Predators, or the Colonial Marines caught in the middle.

While these three additions to the backwards compatibility library weren’t necessarily some of the best games available on the 360 (Sonic Unleashed being one of the many substandard games that the series has released, Amalur bombed and was heavily polarized on its review scores, and AVP received mixed reviews), they’re still at least worth a shot depending on your preferences, such as if you have nostalgia for them.

Then again, that’s the point of the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games anyway, to draw on the nostalgia of gamers that had previously played those games during their own generation. All three of these new Xbox One backwards compatibility games are sure to have their own fans, so they’ll still get some play by a few gamers even if they’re rather niche, forgotten titles.

So, if you want to pick up any of these new Xbox One backwards compatibility games, you can either pick them up for $14.99 or your regional equivalent, but if you still own the disk copies of these games, you can download them for free on your Xbox One.
