The Xbox One has added yet another Xbox 360 game to the list of titles that can be played on the console. Valve's co-op zombie shooter Left 4 Dead 2 is the latest game added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list.

The latest addition was revealed on the Major Nelson Twitter page. First released in 2012, Left 4 Dead 2 pits four characters against a horde of zombies as they try to run from one point to another on maps in several different campaigns. The game can be played by a single player with AI bots controlling the other characters, or by up to four players in online co-op mode. It also includes multiplayer modes where teams of players can control both humans and the zombies.

If you already own the digital copy of Left 4 Dead 2 and also have a Xbox One, it will show up under Ready to Install in your console's Games & Apps section.
