This week’s new list of games hitting the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list have been revealed and it’s a pretty assortment.

Leading things off is Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, the cult-classic RPG from the now defunct 38 Studios. This comes just a few months after it was reported that THQ Nordic has acquired the Kingdoms of Amalur IP so if a new game ever does come to fruition, now it’ll at least easier to revisit the original installment on Xbox One.

Also joining the program today is Sonic Unleashed, you know, the weird Sonic game where he turns into a werewolf or more properly, a Werehog. If you’ve been dying to go back and play that disaster then hey, today’s your day.

Rounding out the new additions is that of Aliens vs. Predator, the multiplayer-focused shooter featuring the classic movie characters. The game was generally poorly received when it first launched back in 2010 but if you’ve been itching to return to it, now you can.

The Xbox One Backward Compatibility list now stands at over 500 titles to revisit. As always, we’ll see a new slate of games joining the service again next week.
