Microsoft today added two more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, adding Haunted House and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
The list is closing in on its next milestone of 300 titles, as today's additions put it at 297. Its last milestone was on September 15, when Microsoft announced that it had 250 backward compatible games. Four games were added on Tuesday, so if the company keeps its usual pace, we should see a total of over 300 next week.
Enter the Haunted House, if you dare. Atari’s classic groundbreaking game is back with more chills, cool new unlockables and plenty of spooky new enemies. Discover hidden secrets, mystical tombs, and new towers and catacombs, as you follow your grandfather’s footsteps on an epic adventure, searching for the magical urn that will lead you to his whereabouts. But beware – danger lurks behind every corner! Are you brave enough for the task, or are you afraid of the dark depths of The Haunted House?
What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? Injustice: Gods Among Us introduces a bold new franchise to the fighting game genre from NetherRealm Studios, creators of Mortal Kombat. Featuring DC Comics icons such as Batman, The Joker, Green Lantern, The Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman, the latest title from the award-winning studio presents a deep original story. Heroes and villains will engage in epic battles on a massive scale in a world where the line between good and evil has been blurred.
Of course, today is the first of the month, which can only mean one thing. It's time for this month's Games with Gold, which like backward compatibility, is a great way to grab fun games on the cheap.
As of today, you can grab Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition (Xbox One) and Outland (Xbox 360) for absolutely free, as long as you're an Xbox Live Gold member and you claim them within the specified dates. You've also got until the 15th to get Murdered: Soul Suspect (Xbox One), which was part of last month's Games with Gold.
