Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and 4 more games come to Xbox backward compatibility

It's been quite a while since we saw some new games hit the Xbox backward compatible list, but that drought is now over. Five new Xbox 360 games are headed to backward compatibility today, led most notably by yet another Assassin's Creed title.

The biggest name in this batch of releases is Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The sixth title from the series to hit Xbox backward compatibility, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood takes series protagonist Ezio to Rome to continue his fight against the Templar Order. This was also the first entry in the series to pack a multiplayer component.

The other four titles being added to the list today are very much on the more minor side of things. Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is an arcade title that old-school run-and-gun gameplay. Blazing Angels, meanwhile, lets you take on famous battles of World War II as a fighter pilot.

Cyber Troopers Virtual-On OT is another arcade title that lets you battle as a giant mech. Lastly, Radiant Silvergun offers up scrolling shooter gameplay reminiscent of old-school arcade games.

All five games are now available to pick up and play on your Xbox One. Each can also be bought in the Xbo 360 Marketplace, except for Blazing Angels, which is only available via disc for the moment. And for more backward compatible titles, be sure to check out our running list.
