Posted on April 11, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Games, Xbox 360, Xbox One with 8 Comments

Microsoft is expanding Xbox Backward Compatability with a huge collection of new games. The company is adding 19 new original Xbox games to Backward Compatability by the end of this month, and it’s also introducing Xbox One X enhancements for 5 Xbox 360 games.

The 19 original Xbox games will bring the number of original Xbox games available for the Xbox One family of consoles to 32. “All of these Original Xbox games will take advantage of the power of Xbox One with up to 4X the pixel count on Xbox One and Xbox One S, and up to 16X the pixel count on Xbox One X,” Microsoft said in a blog post. The new games will be released in two phases — one will be available on April 17:

  • Blinx: The Time Sweeper
  • Breakdown
  • Conker: Live & Reloaded
  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  • Hunter: The Reckoning
  • Jade Empire
  • Panzer Dragoon Orta
  • SSX 3

And the other will be available on April 26:

  • Destroy All Humans!
  • Full Spectrum Warrior
  • Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
  • MX Unleashed
  • Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory
  • Star Wars Battlefront
  • Star Wars Battlefront II
  • Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
  • Star Wars Jedi Starfighter
  • Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
  • Star Wars Republic Commando

Along with these new original Xbox games, Microsoft is bringing Sonic Generations — with Xbox One X enhancements — to the Xbox One. Darksiders, Gears of War 2, Portal 2, Red Dead Redemption, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed are also getting Xbox One X enhancements this week.

    If I play Red Dead Redemption on a regular Xbox One, hooked up to a 1080p TV, will I see any improvement, or does this only help Xbox One X users using a 4K display?

    I keep hoping they will add Simpson’s Road Rage. That was a great game!

      One of my favourites. I tried crazy taxi the other week. Apparently simpsons was a rip-off of it, but simpsons is *much* more fun and better in every conceivable way. I set my bar high for crazy taxi based on road rage and it never even came close to reaching the bar

    I enjoyed KOTOR 1. Never got to play #2 so this will be great for me. Easy purchase ?

    Will Flashpoint Red River be back on PS4 as it was on PS3 because Flashpoint Red River is the best army game ever?
