With the release of three more Xbox One Backward Compatibility games yesterday, the list of Backward Compatibility titles is now over 300, and data shows many of you are routinely using this feature to play Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One.

While the team behind this feature continues to increase the library of available titles, they’re also expanding the capabilities. When Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon were initially added to Xbox One Backward Compatibility library, they were only available to players who owned the original discs. But the team engineered a solution and now both titles are available digitally in the Xbox 360 Marketplace.

  

Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon now available digitally from the Xbox 360 Marketplace

But that’s not all – to celebrate the program’s one year anniversary and exceeding 300 titles, we have a gift for all our Xbox fans. For a limited time, you can download Lost Odyssey for free.

Download Lost Odyssey for free until December 31, 2016

Relive the journey of Kaim, a mysterious immortal warrior, as he embarks on an epic adventure of self-discovery. This epic RPG is yours to enjoy as our way of saying thank you for being a fan of Xbox. The free digital copy of Lost Odyssey must be redeemed by December 31, 2016 and may not be available in all regions.

If you have questions about the program or want to see a full list of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles, please check out my FAQ.

And for more details about how this feature was developed and the process behind selecting and adding titles to the program, I highly recommend you listen to this podcast with a member of the Xbox One Backward Compatibility team.

Mike Ybarra, Head of Platform Engineering for Xbox, shares some thoughts on the one year anniversary of Xbox One Backward Compatibility, including details on one of the most requested titles being added to the back compat library today.

This weekend marks one year since the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program launched, bringing your favorite Xbox 360 titles to our Xbox One catalog so you can continue to enjoy the Xbox 360 games you own at no additional cost. It’s already been a big week with the additions of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 to our library, as well as to the EA Access Vault, and the hits keep coming. We’re excited to announce the arrival of the highly-requested fan favorite, Skate 3, to our library of Backward Compatibility titles – available starting today.

When we first launched Xbox One Backward Compatibility as part of the New Xbox One Experience last November, our goal was to continue to put gamers at the center of everything we do.

We launched with over 100 titles and have added over 170 more in the last year. Today, you can play more than 280 Xbox 360 games on Xbox One, including my personal favorites, Blue Dragon and Red Dead Redemption – and the library continues to grow. We’re thrilled with the response and engagement we’ve seen from the community with more than 210 million hours of gameplay logged. (See the full list of Back Compat titles here)

As we approach our one-year mark on Saturday, November 12, we continue to work with our publishing partners to grow our library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles, and we’ll keep the community updated weekly when new releases are available. And don’t forget, all Xbox 360 games available through Games with Gold since we launched the program last year are also playable on Xbox One.

Now, here’s some more about Skate 3 to help get you in the mood to shred the streets of Port Carverton…

skate-3

The Skate franchise fundamentally changed the skateboarding genre, and Skate 3 made everything that was already great about the series even better while adding a number of notable improvements. It’s no surprise that this title has been a fan-favorite. In addition to the already excellent Flickit control scheme, Skate 3 offers players the chance to team up with their friends to build a skate crew and shape their brand on their way to becoming a mogul.

Skate 3 is also the most accessible of the Skate titles thanks to Skate.School, where you’ll be able to go at any time to learn the ins and outs of skating, practice your moves, and hone your skills. Once you’re ready, say goodbye to harsh security, skate stoppers, and draining pools and say hello to darkslides and underflips as you explore an all-new city – Port Carverton, a skater-friendly mecca. Featuring unique districts, all-new plazas, and endless lines, Port Carverton is a true skater’s paradise. Finally, the Hall of Meat is back in Skate 3 and gnarlier than ever. You can brutalize your skater in the harshest ways possible with all-new total body control bails.

As part of the celebration, we’ve teamed up with EA to provide the San Van Party Pack DLC at no cost for a limited time from Nov 10 to Nov 20 in participating countries.

We’ll also be hosting a special Skate 3 Stream on Friday, November 11 at 1pm PT / 4pm ET. Tune in to beaam.pro/xbox (also at twitch.tv/xbox)

Thanks again to the community for your ongoing feedback and support. You’re what makes Xbox great. I’ll see you on Xbox Live.

To date, millions of Xbox gamers around the world have logged more than 21 million hours playing Xbox One Backward Compatibility games – and today we’re adding a few more to the list.

Jan Release Back Compat_HERO

In addition to adding a few new titles to the backward compatibility list, we’re also going to start releasing 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.

For more details, check out Here’s What’s in Store for Xbox One Backward Compatibility over at Xbox Wire. You can always find the current list of backward compatibly titles and other useful information on my Xbox One Backward Compatibility FAQ.

Today, we’re excited to announce even more Xbox 360 titles available now on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility.

From titles like DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION to classics like Fable III, today, fans will have 16 additional games to choose from, expanding our growing library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles. And as a reminder, all Xbox 360 games available through Games with Gold after Nov. 12, such as the recently available Sacred 3, are playable on Xbox One.
