10 new Xbox One Backward Compatibility games arrive, including free copy of 'The Witcher 2'

After adding 16 games to its library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles last month, Microsoft has announced a further 10 Xbox 360 games that can be played on its newest console:

  • 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

As part of that release, Microsoft is also offering a free download of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Germany until February 5:

A game we’re really excited about is CD Projekt RED’s critically acclaimed title, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Players assume the identity of Geralt of Rivia, a professional monster slayer, or witcher, as he becomes entangled within the political turmoil that has engulfed Temeria while hunting down a treacherous assassin. Featuring an intense and emotionally charged, non-linear story and using your skills with the sword and magical abilities, experience the complex and expansive adventure that leads up to the events of 2015’s award winning The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Microsoft also announced that it is changing the way that it launches new Backward Compatibility titles in the future. From today, new games will be released "as they become available, rather than a set monthly launch date".
