Microsoft recently added new games to its growing roster of titles that are available to play on the Xbox One console under the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program. This time, four new games have been added to the library.
As revealed by Xbox Live’s Director of Programming Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson, via his recent Twitter posts, the four new games that would be coming to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program are “Mars: War Logs,” “Bloodforge,” “GripShift,” and “Go! Go! Break Steady.”
“Mars: War Logs” takes players into the planet Mars as they take on the character of Roy Temperance. The protagonist battles between factions and against savage creatures of the planet.
“Bloodforge” is a third-person hack and slash action game released for the Xbox 360 in 2012. The game features the character of a brute warrior named Crom and was developed by Microsoft and Climax Studios.
“GripShift,” on the other hand, is a hybrid racing game that was originally released for the Sony PlayStation Portable handheld, and was later on ported for the Xbox 360 via the Xbox Live Arcade.
Lastly, “Go! Go! Break Steady” is a puzzle game with the theme of break dancing, with gameplay elements combining styles from “Boom Boom Rocket” and “Zuma.”
Microsoft said in a previous statement that the response of the gamers and fans to their ongoing Xbox One Backward Compatibility program has been nothing but overwhelming and with that, the tech giant promised to do better in terms of adding more classic games that will be available on the current generation Xbox One.
“In addition to all the new games coming, we’re committed to helping carry your favorite games from your Xbox 360 library forward as well,” the company said. “Your response to Xbox One Backward Compatibility has been overwhelming to date, gamers have spent more than 100M total hours playing Backward Compatible titles on Xbox One.”
