Dragon Age II and Saints Row 2 join Xbox backward compatibility

A few days ago, Larry Hryb, the Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Saints Row 2 was joining Xbox One backward compatibility. Today, another highly-anticipated title is becoming part of the service. Dragon Age II is one of the best role-playing games of the previous generation and it's finally playable on Xbox One.

Dragon Age II

Dragon Age II is a single-player game which follows a new hero. Players utilizes choices to affect a story that spans ten years. You are one of the few to survive the destruction of your homeland. Forced to fight to stay alive, you gather the deadliest of allies, amassed fame and fortune, and seal your place in history, eventually becoming a legend.

Saints Row 2

Saints Row is just as over-the-top as its predecessor. Five years have passed since your former Saints crew betrayed you. As you awake from a coma for the first time since that fateful day, you find the Stilwater you once ruled is in disarray. Unfamiliar gangs have laid claim to your territory, rival factions have taken over your rackets, and cash-hungry corporations have laid waste to your once proud home. Abandoned and left scarred with an unrecognizable face, you seek out a plastic surgeon to begin your new life on the streets. The goal is to take back what was once yours.
