Xbox One Adds Halo Reach And 15 Other Games to Backwards Compatibility

In case you’re feeling some holiday nostalgia.

Microsoft has announced 16 Xbox 360 games that are playable today on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. The games range from indie highlights like Spelunky and Braid to massive AAA games like Halo: Reach. You can find the full list below:

  • Braid

  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution

  • Doritos Crash Course

  • Fable 3

  • Halo: Reach

  • Hydro Thunder

  • Iron Brigade

  • Kane & Lynch 2

  • Motocross Madness

  • Ms. Pac-Man

  • Peggle

  • Portal: Still Alive

  • Spelunky

  • Splosion Man

  • Ticket to Ride

  • Zuma’s Revenge

Halo: Reach’s inclusion in this makes every major Halo title playable on Xbox One. These games join other big names like Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, and Just Cause 2 as other big last-generation games now playable on Xbox One.

The backwards compatibility feature, originally announced at E3 this June, officially launched last month. It allows for almost all Xbox One game features, like DVR and screenshots, to work with Xbox 360 games. The initial launch list was 114 games long. Microsoft promised continued updates to the list, and if today’s announcement is any evidence, we can expect more last-generation games in the future.

For those hoping to play Jade Empire or other Original Xbox games on their Xbox One, Microsoft recently said it would be very difficult. For PlayStation fans, Sony has insisted PlayStation 3 backwards compatibility is impossible, but have quietly launched PlayStation 2 Backwards compatibility. The company has since added even more games to the list
