A rather sad announcement was made ahead of E3 2019. Microsoft will no longer be adding new backwards compatible Xbox and Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One library. The entire focus is shifting to ensure the next Xbox, Project Scarlett, is compatible with as many games as possible, which means the current run has to end. So, Microsoft is using this event to sign off with the last Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One X enhanced games.
First, let’s go over the final Xbox One X games. There are eight of them. People can now download updates to Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Banjo-Tooie, Kameo: Elements of Power, Perfect Dark, Perfect Dark Zero, Viva Pinata, and Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. Yes, those are all Rare Replay games.
There are also eight Xbox games being added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility library. People can now get Armed and Dangerous, Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict on their systems. All of these games will have any and all of their DLC available as a free download when you perform an update. Also, the Xbox Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Star Wars: Republic Commando games will get free DLC too.
Finally, the last round of Xbox 360 backwards compatible games were revealed. These were billed as “fan-favorites.” People can now play Asura’s Wrath, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, Enchanted Arms, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Far Cry Classic, Far Cry Instincts: Predator, Infinite Undiscovery, Peter Jackson’s King Kong, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Skate, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Syndicate, Too-Human, and Unreal Tournament III on their Xbox Ones. In addition, Microsoft is giving away digital copies of Too Human to anyone who wants one. All they have to do is visit the Xbox Store.
