Two more Xbox 360 titles have now been added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility list, expanding the already wide selection of backwards compatible games even further. With the latest additions, gamers can now check out both Guardian Heroes and Operation Flashpoint: Red River on Xbox One.

For those unfamiliar, Guardian Heroes is a 2D side-scrolling "beat 'em up" that features co-op and online play. Originally available as a Sega Saturn title, the Xbox 360 arcade version includes updated graphics and multiple game modes to take on. Guardian Heroes is available for $5 on the Xbox Marketplace.
Operation Flashpoint: Red River, on the other hand, sees you commanding a Marine fireteam. Here's a quick description from the game's store page (opens in new tab):
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Operation Flashpoint: Red Rive is available for digital purchase at the moment. Are you planning to check out either title on your Xbox One? Let us know in the comments!
