It's Tuesday and right on schedule, Microsoft has more games to add to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. Announced today, the two new games arrive from the Call of Juarez series, them being Bound in Blood from 2009 and The Cartel from 2011. Both games were originally released for the Xbox 360.
The 2013 entry in the series, Gunslinger, has already been available via the backward compatibility program for some time now, so the new additions are great for those wanting to play the older games in the new console family.
When a Mexican drug cartel bombs a U.S. law enforcement agency, the U.S. government puts together a special task force to bring them down. As you fight to dismantle the Cartel and unfurl the mystery of the bombing, you’ll embark on an epic, bloody road trip from the streets of Los Angeles to Ciudad Juarez. Protect your witness and put an end to the Cartel by any means necessary in this modern day Western shooter.
THE OLD WEST, 1864. Join the McCall Brothers in their ruthless journey of Lust, Greed and Gunslinging.
As for other Microsoft dealings, remember that this is the last week to claim this month's Games with Gold titles, Prison Architect and Sega Vintage Collection: Monster World, before the free promotions expire on September 30. The announcement for the October free games for Xbox Live Gold members should land sometime this week as well.
