Xbox One owners can now play 10 more Xbox 360 games on the console. The new list includes The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings which will be free to download for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners in U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, France and Germany until Feb. 5.

Here's the full list of new Xbox 360 games that can be played on the Xbox One:

  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
  • Sam & Max Save the World
  • Aegis Wing
  • Counter-Strike: GO
  • Age of Booty
  • Space Giraffe
  • Soulcalibur
  • Skullgirls
  • Jeremy McGrath's Offroad
  • Small Arms

Microsoft also announced a change in how they will be adding new Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list from now on:

"Starting today, we'll release titles as they become available, rather than a set monthly launch date. What this means for you is that you won't have to wait to find out the latest titles; we'll release whatever is available, when they're available, once each title has received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval."

Update: Microsoft has now updated its blog post to reflect that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is now free in all regions except for Japan until February 5.
