Backwards compatibility originally launched on the Xbox One back in November 12th, 2016, allowing users to play a number of games that were originally released on the Xbox 360.

Microsoft say that since that release date more than 9 million hours have been spent playing Xbox 360 on the Xbox One, with the most popular games including Fallout 3, Gears of War 3, just Cause 2, Assassin’s Creed II and DIRT 3.

And now Microsoft wants to add more games to that list, announcing more Xbox 360 games that will soon be playable on the Xbox One.

Microsoft explains more:

From titles like DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION to classics like Fable III, today, fans will have 16 additional games to choose from, expanding our growing library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles. And as a reminder, all Xbox 360 games available through Games with Gold after Nov. 12, such as the recently available Sacred 3, are playable on Xbox One. You can find the full list of our latest additions below and also on

What’s more, hot off the heels of the Halo 5:Guardians launch and the Halo World Championship kickoff on Dec. 6, Halo fans can dive even deeper into the Halo universe as Halo: Reach is among the titles added to the catalog this month. The game showcases the power of Xbox One Backward Compatibility, bringing exciting storylines and gameplay from fan favorites onto one console. Today, Halo: Reach will join Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Halo: Spartan Assault on Xbox One.

And here is the full list of games that will be coming to the platform soon.
