Microsoft today announced another Xbox 360 game that's playable on the Xbox One family of consoles via the Backward Compatibility program: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction. It's the 471st title to be added to the list, after the company added three last week.
For years, Sam Fisher has been off the grid and on his own, chasing his daughter's murderer. But the trail leads to the last place Sam wants to see again: Washington D.C. Now Sam must work with old friends he can no longer trust, forced to save a country he no longer serves. For unless he can stand against both a vast, faceless enemy and the shadows of the past, he'll never know what happened to his daughter - or himself. SPLINTER CELL - CONVICTION (Co-op) Russian weapons of mass destruction have been stolen and need to be recovered before they are sold on the black market. Third Echelon and their Russian counterpart Voron must work together to find them, sending American agent Archer and Russian agent Kestrel into the darkest heart of Russia's criminal underworld. Together, they will embark on a mission that will require their cooperation and combined skill, one that will test their very conviction in everything they think they are.
While games that are playable through the Backward Compatibility program are always a great way to play new games on the cheap, don't forget about Games with Gold, which offers four free games every month to Xbox Live Gold subscribers, as long as you claim them within the specified dates. You can claim Shadow Warrior (Xbox One) until the end of the month, and you can get Split/Second (Xbox 360) and Zombi (Xbox One) until the 15th.
There's also Xbox Game Pass, which promises access to over 100 games (it's actually currently over 150) for under $10 per month. In fact, moving forward, all Microsoft Studios games will be offered on Game Pass as soon as they're released, so you'll be able to play titles like Sea of Thieves on day one without buying it.
