Microsoft has been working on their backwards compatibility feature for some time now, with the addition of more new games from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One over the last few months, they have treated us to some classics such as Red Dead Redemption and Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Today they announced details about a further expansion of that list with the release of Halo 1, 3, ODST, and 4 on the Xbox One with this backwards compatibility, all with the original graphics, mechanics, and maps.

And to top that off, all of the original DLC will also be available to download from the Xbox Store for free.

While these games have been available via the Master Chief Collection, that edition was remastered version of the games and not the original version.

We don’t know when the original Xbox 360 versions of these Halo game will be released, however, when they are you will be able to download your old copy from the Xbox One at no extra cost, pop in your old Xbox 360 disc into your Xbox One, or download a new version from the Xbox Store.

 

We will update you as we hear more.
