Microsoft added three new games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today, which now includes all three games from the BioShock series. These include BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite. Interestingly, all three of these are already available on the Xbox One as a set in BioShock: The Collection, and you can even save almost $10 by buying them that way.
Last week, the Backward Compatibility list hit a major milestone, as it now includes 300 games. That would make the total amount now 303, and since there are usually new additions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, there might be even more this week.
BioShock is the first-person shooter where everything is a weapon. Set in a failed underwater utopia, BioShock gives complete freedom to turn the environment, the enemies, even water and fire into powerful tools against your foes.
In BioShock 2, you step into the boots of the most iconic denizen of Rapture, the Big Daddy, as you explore through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers and your own survival.
Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, veteran of the U.S. Cavalry and hired gun Booker DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He must rescue Elizabeth, a mysterious girl imprisoned since childhood and locked up in the flying city of Columbia. Forced to trust one another, Booker and Elizabeth form a powerful bond during their daring escape. Together, they learn to harness an expanding arsenal of weapons and abilities, as they fight on zeppelins in the clouds, along high-speed Sky-Lines, and down in the streets of Columbia, all while surviving the threats of the sky-city and uncovering its dark secret.
While backward compatible Xbox 360 games are a great way to have fun on the cheap, don't forget about Games with Gold, which gives Xbox Live Gold members four free games (two Xbox One and two backward compatible Xbox 360) per-month. The only catch is that you have to claim them in time, and if you cancel your Xbox Live Gold subscription, you'll lose the Xbox One games, but the 360 titles are yours to keep.
It's the 13th, which means that you only have two more days to claim Murdered: Soul Suspect (Xbox One), which was among last month's Games with Gold. Also expiring in a couple days is Outland (Xbox 360), which is among this month's offers. Finally, you've got until the end of the month to grab Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition.
