By  | 

Gears of War 2

Here is the second wave of this month’s original Xbox games have arrived on Xbox One. Classic Xbox titles are now playable on Microsoft’s Xbox One, plus an additional one if you are living in Europe.

This batch of BC titles includes the alien adventure game Destroy All Humans; the military strategy game Full Spectrum Warrior; the motocross game MX Unleashed; and the third-person shooter Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction. Xbox One owners in Europe, meanwhile, get an additional backwards compatible game in the form of Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory.

On top of those games, six classic Star Wars titles are also now playable on Xbox One. Those include the original Battlefront and Battlefront II; the Star Wars action game Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy; the first-person shooter Republic Commando; and Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Obsidian’s follow-up to BioWare’s acclaimed Star Wars RPG.

If you still own the disc for any of the games mentioned above, you can now put it in your Xbox One and begin playing. The games are also available to purchase digitally from the Xbox Store.

April has been a significant month for Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature. Last week, Microsoft rolled out eight original Xbox BC games, including The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind; Jade Empire; Conker: Live & Reloaded; and Panzer Dragoon Orta.

That marked the second batch of original Xbox games to support Xbox One; the first arrived back in October and consisted of 13 titles, including Black, Psychonauts, Prince of Persia, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. You can see the full list of Xbox One BC games here. Microsoft also recently rolled out Xbox One X enhancements for a number of BC titles, including Red Dead Redemption, Gears of War 2, and Portal 2.
