Normally, Xbox One Backward Compatibility game announcements arrive on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but today Microsoft brought in a single Xbox 360 game to the program. Bandai Namco's Ace Combat 6: Fires of the Liberation from 2007 is now natively playable on the Xbox One family of consoles.
Lead not only aerial combat units but also naval and ground combat units to victory. Massive conflicts unfold on a “living battlefield” integrated by the “Dynamic Operation System” where up to six independent aerial, ground, and naval battles can break out at once as allies and enemies clash in real-time.
While this is one of those games that is not directly available to purchase through the Xbox Marketplace, there is a method to grab a copy for those who don't already own the disk, although its a pretty expensive one.
Anyone who purchases the upcoming entry in the series Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown - which launches tomorrow, January 18 - for the Xbox One will receive a free copy of Ace Combat 6 with their purchase.
This is a limited-time promotion, but the exact date of when it will come to an end was not shared.
