Microsoft adds six more games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility

The list of Xbox 360 games that are backward compatible with the Xbox One continues to grow, as Microsoft has today added six further titles. In fact, the list is drawing close to 200 games.

While the list has generally been expanding at a rapid pace, the only game that was added last week was Call of Duty: Black Ops. The week before that saw five titles added.

Here's what's new to the list this week:

Domino Master ($4.99)

There was no description listed for Domino Master, but the game looks like it's pretty self-explanatory.

DuckTales: Remastered ($14.99)

DuckTales: Remastered is a hand-crafted, beautiful reimagining of one of the most cherished 8-bit titles of all time. Go back to one of the golden ages of gaming, but now refined with a level of detail that will please the most hardened devoted Disney or retro Capcom fan, alike. Featuring hand-drawn animated sprites, authentic Disney character voices talent and richly painted level backgrounds from the classic cartoon TV series, Scrooge McDuck and family come to life like never before. The gameplay retains the authenticity of its 8-bit predecessor, simple and fun, with slight modifications to improve gameplay flow and design. Embark on an authentic DuckTales adventure, as Scrooge McDuck and his three nephews; Huey, Dewey and Louie travel to exotic locations throughout the world in their quest to retrieve the five Legendary Treasures.

Hexic 2 ($9.99)

Ready to put your hex-busting skills to the test? The game’s not over until you build a full cluster, flower, or line of black pearls! For an extra layer of challenge, match wits with a friend or the devious computer player in Battle mode.

Magic 2012 ($9.99)

All-new and redesigned, Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 takes last year’s massive hit game to even greater heights with better graphics, more options, and new challenges! Face off against the AI, or gather your allies for the new multiplayer format: Archenemy, where you team up to take down a boss opponent. And if one of your fellow Planeswalkers drops out, no problem–the AI will drop in for uninterrupted action! Featuring ten unique decks, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 also lets you customize those decks. As you progress in the game, you can enhance your deck by swapping in new, unlockable cards! Gather your allies. A challenge awaits.

Unbound Saga ($9.99)

Unlock the full version of Unbound Saga to enjoy all 10 issues of madcap brawling adventure! Guide Rick and Lori through dozens upon dozens of environments filled with realtime physics, destructible objects, fearsome foes, and wicked bosses. Unlock a huge variety of super-skills and power moves on your journey through the wild comic world of Toxopolis! Break off a weapon and RAGE OFF THE PAGE!

XCOM: Enemy Unknown ($39.99)

From the award-winning creators of Civilization comes an action-strategy game about humanity’s last stand. Threatened by an unknown enemy, the Earth’s governments unite to form a secret paramilitary organization, known as XCOM, to combat this extraterrestrial attack. As the commander of XCOM, you control the global defense team in a battle against a terrifying alien invasion. Control the fate of the human race by creating and managing a fully operational base, researching alien technologies, planning combat missions, and controlling soldier movement in battle.

You'll notice that XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the most expensive title out of the games added to the list today, but good news! From June 16 through June 30, you can get it for free through the Games with Gold program, assuming that you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.

Games continue to be added to the list at a very fast pace, so if the game that you're waiting for isn't on the list, hold tight - they're not done yet.
