Xbox Backwards Compatibility is One Year Old Already

Microsoft and the Xbox New Wire has announced that this weekend marks one year since the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program launched, bringing Xbox 360 titles to our Xbox One catalog so you can continue to enjoy the Xbox 360 games you own at no additional cost. It’s already been a big week with the additions of Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 to our library, as well as to the EA Access Vault, and the hits keep coming. The arrival of the highly-requested fan favorite, Skate 3, has been announced and is adding to the library of Backward Compatibility titles.

Microsoft launched with over 100 titles and have added over 170 more in the last year. Today, you can play more than 280 Xbox 360 games on Xbox One and the library continues to grow. You can check out the ’celebatory video’ right below with a summation of some of the great backwards compatible games on the Xbox One:

As for the newest addition, Skate 3, he Skate franchise fundamentally changed the skateboarding genre, and Skate 3 made everything that was already great about the series even better while adding a number of notable improvements. It’s no surprise that this title has been a fan-favorite. In addition to the already excellent Flickit control scheme, Skate 3 offers players the chance to team up with their friends to build a skate crew and shape their brand on their way to becoming a mogul.

Skate 3 is also the most accessible of the Skate titles thanks to Skate.School, where you’ll be able to go at any time to learn the ins and outs of skating, practice your moves, and hone your skills. Once you’re ready, say goodbye to harsh security, skate stoppers, and draining pools and say hello to darkslides and underflips as you explore an all-new city – Port Carverton, a skater-friendly mecca. Featuring unique districts, all-new plazas, and endless lines, Port Carverton is a true skater’s paradise. Finally, the Hall of Meat is back in Skate 3 and gnarlier than ever. You can brutalize your skater in the harshest ways possible with all-new total body control bails.

As part of the celebration, we’ve teamed up with EA to provide the San Van Party Pack DLC at no cost for a limited time from Nov 10 to Nov 20 in participating countries.
