Another new game is hitting the Xbox One backward compatibility list today, and it's a biggie: Far Cry 3. In a break from the usual batches of games to hit the list, Far Cry 3 is the only game hitting the list today, but it's definitely big enough to carry the day on its own.

Far Cry 3, for anyone unfamiliar, is an open world shooter that throws you into a fight for your life on a large, dangerous island in the middle of nowhere.
Far Cry 3 is actually the second entry in the series to become backward compatible, following in the footsteps of the smaller (and much goofier) Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. If you already own the game, you should be able to start playing right away on your Xbox One. If not, you can pick up Far Cry 3 for $20 at the Xbox 360 Marketplace now.
