Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and More Join the Ranks of Xbox One Backward Compatible Games

The latest roster of Xbox One backward compatible games is here, and Assassin's Creed once again takes the headlining role.

It’s been nearly a month since our last round of backward compatibility, however Microsoft and Ubisoft are continuing to bolster the games’ lineup. While Assassin’s Creed III just became backward compatible last month, this month prominently features Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood — and a few other titles to pump up the list.

The full list of games don’t have any other major standouts, but it is always great to get some more representation for people who have purchased the titles in the past:

  • Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
  • Blazing Angels
  • Cyber Troopers Virtual On Oratorio Tangram
  • Raidiant Silvergun
  • Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3

Backward compatibility has been a large talking point lately, spurred by comments from Sony that backward compatibility may be an unnecessary feature in 2017.

That data point directly clashes with Xbox’s statement that half of Xbox One owners use the feature. Also, it ignores the clear point that people are already rallying to pay for retro game collections like Rare Replay or the upcoming SNES Classic Edition. Xbox is even doubling down on the gamble, adding original Xbox titles later this year.

As always, backward compatibility will be available whether you had purchased the games on disc or have purchased the game in the past.
