Today, Larry Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, announced that Xbox 360 games Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Legend are now backward compatible on Xbox One. The three games aren't the heavy-hitters fans were hoping for, but they're still a lot of fun. The two games are on sale for just $1.99 on the Xbox 360 Marketplace right now!
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One to a huge variety of games, spanning three generations of Microsoft's consoles. Despite hardware differences, it remains an outstanding feature, allowing a select library of older games to be played on Xbox One. While the majority of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games in there.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Tomb Raider: Anniversary is a reimagined adventure inspired by the original Tomb Raider game. The title is considered to be one of the greatest adventure games of all time. This version features higher resolution visuals, real-time lighting and shadows, and better character movement.
Tomb Raider: Legend
Tomb Raider: Legend is another adventure for Lara Croft. Players will discover ancient realms that hold clues to her past. Among the most significant additions to this game were the grappling hook and variety of locations like jungles and snow-covered mountains.
Be sure to check out these games on Xbox One if you're looking for a break between new experiences like The Crew 2. Even to this day Tomb Raider: Anniversary and Tomb Raider: Legend remain quite enjoyable.
