Earlier this month Microsoft announced an expansion of its backward compatibility program, ushering in 19 new titles from the original Xbox era. Building on the founding library of titles delivered last November, the second wave is set to bring more fan favorites to Xbox One. Today, a portion of these new titles hit the console, prior to a full rollout scheduled for next week.
Xbox One owners can now play eight new original Xbox titles via backward compatibility, including The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Jade Empire, and Panzer Dragoon Orta. Below is a complete list of today's new titles now playable on the console.
- Blinx: The Time Sweeper
- Conker: Live & Reloaded
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- Hunter: The Reckoning
- Jade Empire
- Panzer Dragoon Orta
- SSX 3
Each of these titles can be accessed directly through the Xbox Marketplace as a digital purchase or with the original discs from over a decade ago. Visual enhancements are delivered across the Xbox One family, with a sixteen-times resolution increase on Xbox One X and four-times bump on Xbox One S.
More original Xbox games are also on the way – Destroy All Humans!, Full Spectrum Warrior and a variety of Star Wars experiences are among the 10 further titles set for April 26. Which titles are you hoping to play? Drop into the comments section below with your thoughts.
