Microsoft added two more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list today, including Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. While the list includes games that were made for both the Xbox and Xbox 360, both of these are Xbox 360 games.
Xbox One Backward Compatibility supports over 500 games from both consoles now, so chances are that if there's something specific that you want to play, it's on there. The idea is to remove barriers from upgrading to the latest generation of consoles.
Here's what's new today:
Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, is the remastered striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga . The year is 1765. As the events leading up to the American Revolution heat up in the north, Spanish forces plan to take control of Louisiana in the south – but they have yet to reckon with Aveline, an Assassin with a French and African mixed heritage, who finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins. Taking full advantage of its new hardware, Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD introduces graphical improvements and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.
