Need some strategy games to play on Xbox One? Microsoft is bringing one of the best from the Xbox 360 to Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Soul Calibur 2 and The King of Fighters ‘98 join Halo Wars in the constantly growing library of Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One.
The Xbox team have been adding new titles at a steady clip over the past few weeks. It’s the third set of games in two weeks to hit Xbox One. Assassin’s Creed, Dark Void, Dark Souls and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 are also playable. Also, Dead Space and Saints Row: The Third will be available next month thanks to Games with Gold.
Microsoft recently did away with scheduling releases for when Xbox 360 games will be added. Instead, they are opting for a ‘release when ready’ approach. I like it. Plus, I can’t wait for the day when I wake up and Red Dead Redemption is on there. Damn, I wish I didn’t get rid of my Xbox 360.
That’s one down, five more to go
When backwards compatibility was kicked off, Microsoft made a big deal announcing six titles that were ‘coming soon.’ They were Halo Wars, Skate 3, BioShock, BioShock 2, BioShock Infinite and Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Today, we got Halo Wars. Now, where’s Call of Duty: Black Ops? It can’t be that much longer.
The 10 games I want to see next
Everyone’s top 10 has Red Dead Redemption in there somewhere. But what else do you want to see? Here’s my top 10.
1. Red Dead Redemption 2. Burnout Paradise 3. Crackdown 4. Ghost Recon (any of them will do) 5. Lost Odyssey 6. Bulletstorm 7. Fight Night 8. Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars 9. NCAA Football 14 10. Chromehounds
So the last two are never happening, but it’s nice to dream right? Microsoft has a handy list showing all the backwards compatibility games announced so far.
