Xbox One Backward Compatibility turns one-year-old, adds two new games

Xbox One Backward Compatibility will turn one-year-old in two days on November 12, as the company is adding two more Xbox 360 games to the list. Today's additions are Scarygirl and Skate 3.

When the feature launched last year, there were over 100 backward compatible games, and since then, Microsoft has added over 170, bringing the total to over 280. The list hit the milestone of 200 titles in June, and then reached 250 in September.

Scarygirl and Skate 3 are the fifth and sixth titles to be added this week, as Monday saw the addition of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3, and Tuesday also added two more games.

Scarygirl ($9.99)

Scarygirl is a wondrous adventure through a beautifully-bizarre world based on the Scarygirl graphic novel created by acclaimed artist Nathan Jurevicius. Scarygirl, an abandoned girl, dressed like a pirate, with a tentacle arm, is sent on a quest to discover what happened to the Tree of Knowledge. Along the way, she’ll be aided by a giant octopus, a mystical kung-fu rabbit, and vendors who sell new attacks. She can also enter a shadowy version of the world to unleash truly wicked attacks.

Skate 3 ($11.99)

The SKATE™ franchise is back and rolling into new territory as SKATE™ 3 heads to the brand new city of Port Carverton. Delivering a unique co-op skateboarding experience, build your own customized skate team and change the face of the city by taking on unique team challenges, competing against rival crews online, and shredding the streets of an all-new skaters’ paradise. SKATE™ 3 - Team Up. Throw Down.

As always, Games with Gold is a great way to get new games for your collection, assuming that you're an Xbox Live Gold member. You've only got five days left to claim The Escapists (Xbox One) and Monkey Island: SE (Xbox 360), and you can grab Super Dungeon Bros (Xbox One) until the end of the month.
