Today, Microsoft is once again adding two more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list, which includes games that were originally built for the Xbox and the Xbox 360 consoles. Both of today's additions were made for the Xbox 360.
The firm has been adding games pretty regularly to the list. There were two games added last Tuesday, and the week before that, and the week before that. Today's additions are Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent.
Unleash the power or the most lethal agent to ever exist. You are Sam Fisher, and you've been given the ultimate freedom to protect innocents against a series of global terror attacks known as Blacklist - the freedom to use limitless force, to break every law, and to become the globe's deadliest operative. If you succeed, the President of the United States will deny you exist. If you fail, millions will die.
Splinter Cell Double Agent is a Stealth-Action game where you play as Sam Fisher, a secret NSA agent, infiltrating a terrorist cell to destroy it from within. Face the gut-wrenching dilemmas of a Double Agent's life, do whatever it takes to complete your mission, and get out alive. Play Online Multiplayer, as a Spy or a Mercenary, to experience either the chilling tension of infiltrating and hacking unseen or the brutal power of hunting and eliminating intruders. Use acrobatic moves against high-tech gear and drones in an instant and addictive 3 vs. 3 game mode. Cooperate with two teammates, improve and challenge yourself against advanced AI bots in the exclusive “Coop Challenges” mode.
Also, if you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, then you should be cashing in on your Games with Gold, which offers four free games per month to paid subscribers. It's a new month, which means new offers.
As part of this month's Games with Gold, you can now claim Forza Horizon 2 (Xbox One) and Dead Space 3 (Xbox 360). You've also got until August 15 to claim Death Squared (Xbox One) as part of last month's offers.
