Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and more games join Xbox backward compatibility

More Xbox 360 games are joining the Xbox One backward compatibility program today. Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, just announced that Axel & Pixel, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition will be playable on the console. These games aren't the heavy-hitters fans were hoping for, but they're still a lot of fun.

Axel & Pixel

Axel & Pixel is a unique platformer which focuses on art. One day Axel, a painter, and his dog Pixel awaken, trapped in a beautiful but perilous dream world of his own creation. They must solve the mysteries of Axel's landscapes to get home. Players guide the duo through an awe-inspiring world to help Axel fulfill his greatest wish to paint a picture of all four seasons in a single day. According to the developer, Axel & Pixel is a unique journey through an artist's dream.

It appears that this item has been delisted and is no longer available for purchase on the Xbox 360 Marketplace.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is a third-person tactical shooter which places you in dangerous situations. Armed with the most advanced combat technology, the Ghosts are an untraceable unit of soldiers who track down the highest-value targets in the highest-risk conflict areas around the world. In the near future, four of these elite soldiers serve as the tip of the spear in a hidden war raging across the globe. As the Ghosts accomplish their objectives, they discover a far greater threat, one that could alter the international balance of power forever.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition is a remaster of the famous third-person stealth game. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. The game is more about the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.

Be sure to check out these games on Xbox One if you're looking for a break between new experiences like Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Even to this day, Axel & Pixel, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker remain quite enjoyable.
