Battlefield 3, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and more hit Xbox One backward compatibility

A new wave of highly-anticipated Xbox 360 titles is hitting backward compatibility today, adding three new games to the list of supported titles. Today's additions come from Electronic Arts, with Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, and Dragon Age: Origins all now playable on the Xbox One.

As announced by Xbox's Larry Hryb on Twitter, all three of these games will be playable on Xbox One consoles later today. Both physical versions and existing digital licenses are valid on Xbox One, with digital versions available for newcomers via the Xbox Store. However, Battlefield 3 was never offered via Games on Demand, meaning only disc-based versions of the game are supported.

While these titles have all seen large followings in the past, Battlefield Bad Company 2 is among the biggest games this last generation. With an expansive single player campaign and a critically acclaimed multiplayer segment, the game sits among the biggest shooters released during the Xbox 360's lifespan.

Battlefield 3 was released shortly after Battlefield Bad Company 2, while also being one of the last Battlefield releases for Xbox 360. Taking combat forward into the present day, Battlefield 3 brought more realistic gameplay and graphics to the Xbox 360. Although the game was never applauded for its single player, its multiplayer delivered unrivaled destruction and scale to the first-person shooter landscape.

The last of today's lineup is Dragon Age: Origins – the first game in Electronic Art's flagship fantasy RPG franchise. With a diverse open-world and praised combat system, the game is a great way to get started with the Dragon Age franchise.
