Sam Fisher is finally back! Well, kind of.
Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb revealed on Twitter today that the latest editions to the Xbox One Backward Compatible program are two of Sam Fisher’s past expeditions. Starting today, both Splinter Cell Blacklist and Splinter Cell Double Agent will now be available for play on Xbox One so if you have your old Xbox 360 copies or you own either game digitally, feel free to boot them up.
The Splinter Cell games are some of the most widely asked-for games that fans have been begging Microsoft to make apart of the program. While Splinter Cell Conviction was previously added to the program, Blacklist and Double Agent now round out all of the active Splinter Cell games that were released for Xbox 360.
As mentioned in the last update post for the Xbox One Backward Compatible program which saw two Silent Hill games make their way over, there are now nearly 500 games available for play through the program with more sure to arrive in the near future.
