Microsoft adds two more games to Xbox One Backward Compatibility

Today, Microsoft added two more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, bringing the grand total to 581 Xbox and Xbox 360 games. Today's additions include Hydrophobia and Marathon: Durandal.

The news comes five days after the Lost Planet series was added to the list, as new games tend to be added on either Tuesdays or Thursdays. Here are today's additions:

Hydrophobia ($8.99)

Hydrophobia™ is a third person survival adventure set in a floating city, where terrorists take control and heroine Kate has to overcome her haunting childhood memories and fight back using all her skills and expertise as a systems engineer. Hydrophobia offers fast-paced action and breathtaking visuals; engage in mind blowing “flow combat” where emergent gameplay results in a never-the-same-experience. Unleash floating oil fires, electricity and the power of the water itself to wipe out your enemy as you discover the terrifying truth of the Malthusian agenda; Save the World, Kill Yourself.

Marathon: Durandal ($9.99)

Purchase now to unlock the full game, with all the classic Marathon gameplay and shiny new enhanced high-definition graphics! Feeling tough? Take on the universe alone in Single-Player mode. Feeling friendly? Team up with others to fight the Pfhor in Cooperative mode. Spoiling for a fight? Challenge the world to Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Tag, or the ever-popular Kill the Man with the Ball!
