Today, Microsoft announced that it's adding two more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. The new additions include Mafia II and Prey, and they bring the list to a grand total of 473 Xbox and Xbox 360 games, on top of last week's addition of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction.
As noted by Larry Hryb (Major Nelson), both games are currently discounted as part of the 2K Publisher Sale, so you can get both of these on the cheap.
Mafia II is a beautifully crafted look into the dark and unforgiving world of the Mafia. Hi-octane gunplay, brutal fighting and white-knuckle driving bust onto the screen as a Hollywood-style cinematic experience. It is the intriguing story of Vito Scaletta, who along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime. Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. Starting with low-level jobs like robbery and stealing cars, Vito and Joe escalate quickly up the Mafia family ladder…but the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.
Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. Along with his people, he is abducted to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, where he sets out to save himself, his girlfriend, and eventually his planet.
Also, don't forget about this month's Games with Gold. If you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you've only got two days left to claim Zombi (Xbox One) and Split/Second (Xbox 360). Shadow Warrior (Xbox One) is also free until the end of the month. Beginning in a couple of days, subscribers will be able to claim Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India (Xbox One) and Crazi Taxi (Xbox 360).
