Microsoft adds three more games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility list

Today is Tuesday, which means that Microsoft added three more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, including Burnout Paradise, Pure, and Rayman Legends. It's worth noting that the company just announced this month's Games with Gold, and Burnout Paradise was among them.

New additions to the Backward Compatibility list typically show up on Tuesdays and Thursdays; however, don't expect to see any on the 24th, as it's Thanksgiving in the United States. For the same reason, Microsoft won't be releasing any Windows 10 Insider Preview builds this week.

Here's what's new to Backward Compatibility:

Burnout Paradise ($14.99)

Race, jump and smash through the streets of Paradise City in muscle cars, exotics, hot rods and even supercharged SUVs designed from the ground up to look beautiful whether they’re brand new or torn to pieces! Earn your Burnout Driver’s license by competing in over 100+ events including Races, Stunt Run, Road Rages and Marked Man. Compete against your friends for Time Road Rules and tear up the streets in Showtime, the all new destructive open world crashing experience. Looking for an online challenge, seamlessly connect with up to 7 buddies instantly, drive together cooperatively in over 300 Freeburn challenges or go head to head in custom created race routes across town. Take down your friends and grab their mugshots for your trophy room using the Xbox Live Vision Camera!


PURE is an offroad trick-racing game featuring incredible tricks and massive, vertigo-inducing jumps. Leap hundreds of feet into the air - off mountains, over lakes and across gaping chasms in epic worldwide locations. Pull off over 70 different tricks and build over 100,000 different custom quad bikes. It's all about speed, air and incredible tricks. PURE Adrenaline!

Rayman Legends ($39.99)

The Glade of Dreams is in trouble once again! During a 100-year nap, the nightmares multiplied and spread, creating new monsters even more terrifying than before! These creatures are the stuff of legend… Dragons, giant toads, sea monsters, and even evil luchadores. With the help of Murfy, Rayman and Globox awake and must now help fight these nightmares and save the Teensies!

You'll notice that there's no price next to Pure, and that's because it's not sold online. You can check it out in the Xbox Store, but if you want to play it, you'll need the disc.

Other than Burnout Paradise, next month's Games with Gold include Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition (Xbox One), Outlast (Xbox One), and Outland (Xbox 360). You still have time to grab some of this month's games though, with Super Dungeon Bros (Xbox One) and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (Xbox 360) available until the end of the month, and Murdered: Soul Suspect (Xbox One) available until December 15.
