Microsoft has this week announced that the previously announced backwards compatibility support and the full new update for the Xbox One will hit consoles on November 12th.

This announcement was made by the boss of Xbox Phil Spencer during the launch event for Halo 5: Guardians.

The new Xbox One update will come with a ton of new features, with a brand new UI that is cleaner, a new snap pane that will allow you to quickly navigate your friends, parties, messages, notifications and snapable apps.

There’s also support with DirectX 12 and of course backwards compatibility.

Backwards compatibility basically allows your Xbox One to play a number of Xbox 360 games on your console at no additional cost, with around 100 titles currently available to play on the title, and more coming every month.

With this users are also able to keep game saves, add-ons, achievements and Gamerscore on the Xbox One, with the addition of Xbox One’s Game DVR, screenshots features and Windows 10 streaming.

You can also play multiplayer with users on both consoles, and it will work with both disc-based and digital games, all at no additional cost.
