Today, Microsoft only added one new title to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, but it's a big one. You can now play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on the Xbox One family of gaming consoles.
Microsoft hasn't been adding new games to the list as frequently as it used to, with the last new additions coming almost two weeks ago. Still, the list contains well over 500 games now, a milestone that was achieved nearly two months ago.
Modern Warfare® is back. The best-selling first person action series of all-time returns with the epic sequel to multiple "Game of the Year" award winner, "Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare 2." In the world’s darkest hour, are you willing to do what is necessary? Prepare yourself for a cinematic thrill-ride as only Call of Duty can deliver. Online, the definitive Multiplayer experience returns bigger and better than ever, loaded with new maps, modes and features. Co-Op play has evolved with all-new Spec-Ops missions and leaderboards, as well as Survival Mode, an action-packed combat progression unlike any other.
While the game is typically $29.99, it's actually on sale right now, assuming that you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. This week, you can get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for just $14.99.
But if you're looking for new games on the cheap and you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, don't forget about this month's Games with Gold. Now that it's the second half of the month, Smite Gold Bundle (Xbox One) and Lego Indiana Jones 2 (Xbox 360) are now free, and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (Xbox One) is free all month.
