Gamers just got a good reason to rejoice. Microsoft recently decided to add 3 games to the Xbox One Backward compatibility. One the most popular ones is ‘Assassin’s Creed’.

In case, you don’t know what the Xbox One Backward Compatibility is, here is a short run-down. Backward compatibility is a feature that allows you to play most of your Xbox 360 games on the new Xbox One without wanting you to pay a single penny.

For now, Microsoft has unveiled 104 games that can make use of the backward compatibility functionality. Some of these include games like A Kingdom for Keflings, Borderlands, Castle Crashers, Condemned, Crazy Taxi, Gear of Wars, and Toy Soldiers to name a few. The Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians is also one of the favourites of the gamers. However, you can surely expect more games to be added in the months to come.

Alright! Now, let’s talk about the 3 new games you can enjoy on your brand new Xbox One.

Assassin’s Creed

The 2007’s Assassin’s Creed is one of the games released for Backward Compatibility. Earlier, Microsoft has made ‘Assassin’s Creed 2’ available for Xbox One users. Now, this seems to be a bit weird. Why did Microsoft decide to release the sequel for Backward Compatibility before the original one? Well, some believe that the popularity of ‘Assassin’s Creed 2’ led to its release on the Xbox One way before its prequel.

When it comes to announcing a game for Backward Compatibility, Microsoft does it in a well-defined sequence. Once the first game of the series is released, the next are most likely to follow in the months to come.

Grid 2

Along with the Assassin’s Creed, GRID 2 and Dark Void also made it to the list. If racing games get you excited, then you probably know a lot about the GRID 2. Developed by a British gaming company code masters, GRID 2 is a sequel to the 2008 Race Driver: GRID.
