Like a beat of the ever-steady war drum, the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program has announced yet another game that will be making its way to the current generation console. The latest reveal? Electronic Arts’ Battlefield: Bad Company, who join the good company of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and ScreamRide as this week’s picks.

Battlefield: Bad Company is of course the FPS 2008 game from developers EA DICE. Set in an alternate-future Russo-American War, players take on the role of a foursome labeled the “B” Company — thus “Bad Company.” Players take on the role of Preston Marlowe, a new solider joining Bad Company, in his first mission on the new team.

While Battlefield: Bad Company was never reviewed by DualShockers, the game did get winning reviews across the industry for both its single player campaign and multiplayer gameplay. More importantly, the game inspired the fantastic Battlefield: Bad Company 2 — which DualShockers’ Co-Founder Yaris Gutierrez praised for looking “immensely great.” That game made it onto Xbox One’s Backward Compatibility program earlier this year.

Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility program continues to be a great value to Xbox 360 retirees, who can now play their old discs or digital collection on the Xbox One family. Only earlier this year, Microsoft revealed that original Xbox titles would be making their way over to Xbox One as well.
