Darksiders and Assassin's Creed Revelations hit Xbox backward compatibility

A second batch of games is headed to the Xbox One backward compatibility list this week, bringing 3 new titles. Included in this round are Darksiders, Darksiders II, and Assassin's Creed Revelations.

For anyone unfamiliar with these particular titles, Assassin's Creed Revelations is a continuation of the popular series in which protagonist Ezio travels to the heart of the Ottoman Empire to take on an army of templars. The Darksiders series, on the other hand, places you in the shoes of on of the four horseman of the apocalypse as you battle both angels and demons. Darksiders II has you picking up the mantle once again after you're awakened by the end of days.

If you already own these games, you should be able to start playing them right away on your Xbox One. That said, if you have yet to pick up Darksiders or Assassin's Creed Revelations, you'll probably want to hold off until next month: both games will be free through the Games with Gold program in April. And for more, be sure to check out our running list of backward compatible games.
