Microsoft today announced that it's adding three more games to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility list. Today's additions include Bound by Flame, The Maw, and Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown.
The new games mark a milestone for the Backward Compatibility program, as the list of games now has over 250 titles on it. Just three months ago, we reported that it had reached 200, so it's continuing to expand rapidly.
Indeed, last week saw the addition of eight games, with three on Tuesday and five on Thursday. It was by far the biggest week for new backward compatible games since late July, and the first time that more than two games were added since the first week of August. New additions usually arrive on Tuesday and Thursday, but there was nothing new on Tuesday this week.
In a desperate world ravaged by seven Ice Lords and their Deadarmy, you are Vulcan, a mercenary possessed by a flame demon. In this RPG where all your choices lead to consequences, you will have to choose between unleashing the powers of the demon within, and rejecting the demonic influence that wants to claim your humanity. Freely develop your skills and combat style through three skill trees: swing the heavy weapons of the Fighter, wield the sneaky dual daggers of the Ranger, or use the devastating flame spells of the Pyromancer. Recruit companions who will live, love, hate and fight alongside you against the dreadful creatures of Vertiel, in spectacular and tactical real-time combat. The bigger the danger, the greater the temptation to draw on the demon’s power at the cost of your soul… which way will YOU choose?
Unlock The Maw, winner of the 2008 PAX-10 Audience Choice Award, and help Maw devour his way to freedom. The full version of The Maw includes a bonus unlockable dashboard theme and free gamerpics for beating the game!
Reignite your inner fighter and prepare for the ultimate showdown! Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is the definitive version of the Virtua Fighter 5 series that incorporates all the enhancements SEGA has rolled out since 2007 with some brand new features.
If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, don't forget about Games with Gold, which will give you four free games (two Xbox One and two backward compatible Xbox 360) per month. Today is your last day to claim WWE 2K16 (Xbox One), which was part of last month's offering.
This month's Games with Gold include Forza Horizon (Xbox 360), which also expires today, but you can claim Earthlock: Festival of Magic (Xbox One) until the end of the month. Beginning tomorrow, you can also grab Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China (Xbox One) and Mirror's Edge (Xbox 360).
