Today, Microsoft announced two more games that are being added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, including Hitman: Blood Money and LEGO Star Wars III. With these new additions, it brings the grand total of games on the list to 479.
Here's what's new today:
Hitman’s back, drawing you closer than ever into his deadly world where staying anonymous, being smart and totally ruthless are the key to a perfect execution. Lucrative contracts on the rich and powerful in high profile locations make killing for money good business. But when a rival agency enters the scene it’s war and only the best man will be left standing. There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see www.xbox.com/live/accounts. Official Xbox Magazine- 8/10 “a unique and hugely enjoyable experience” VideoGamer- 8/10 “some of the best levels ever created in a video game.”
Laugh your way through an all-new story that takes you through 16 different systems and experience brand new features like massive ground battles, boss fights, and multi-layered space combat. Expanded Force abilities, brand new weapons, characters, environments, and over 20 story-based missions make this the most action-packed LEGO game to date!
It's also a new month, which means that there are all-new Games with Gold for Xbox Live Gold subscribers to claim. You've got until the 15th to grab Brave: The Video Game (Xbox 360) and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India (Xbox One), and you can claim Trials of the Blood Dragon (Xbox One) until the end of the month.
Xbox Game Pass is another way to get new games on the cheap. Microsoft recently announced that first-party exclusives will be available on Game Pass on day one, so for $9.99 a month, that's a bargain.
