on January 21, 2016 10:04 AM

Ever since its surprise reveal at last year’s E3 2015, seeing what the next titles coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility is going to be a monthly treat for those longing to jump back in to some of the best titles from the Xbox 360 generation, with Microsoft revealing a new wave of backwards compatible titles for January.

Microsoft revealed 10 new titles that will be joining the roster for Xbox One backwards compatibility, with the full list of titles that will be available to download today for Xbox One owners below:

  • Aegis Wing
  • Age of Booty
  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad
  • Sam & Max Save the World
  • Skullgirls
  • Small Arms
  • Soulcalibur
  • Space Giraffe
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

In addition, Microsoft also revealed that as opposed to a set monthly launch date for new titles coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility, new titles that are eligible for backwards compatibility will be released as they become ready, once they receive the proper approval from the developers and publisher.

As an added bonus for today’s new titles, Xbox Live subscribers in select regions can also grab a free copy of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on Xbox.com or the Xbox Games Store any time between now through February 5th, 2016, so you can add one more backwards compatible title (and a quite excellent RPG) to your games queue.
