As you'll recall, The Orange Box packs some popular Valve titles in one package. Those include Team Fortress 2, Portal, and Half-Life 2 (along with Episodes 1 and 2). It's certainly no Half-Life 3 (come on Valve!), but hey, we'll take it.

Every backward compatible game currently on Xbox One

In any case, if you already own The Orange Box for Xbox 360, you should be able to enjoy it once again on your Xbox One. The collection is, of course, always available to purchase via the Xbox 360 Marketplace as well.
