Major Nelson has, today, tweeted on two separate occasions, noting the addition of a few more games to the ever growing list of Backwards Compatible games:

The newest games to be added are:

  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  • DuckTales: Remastered
  • Hexic 2
  • Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012
  • Domino Master
  • Unbound Saga

If you had previously owned these games digitally, they should already show on your ‘Ready to Download’ area of ‘My Games and Apps’ of your Xbox One. You can, as any other game, download and play them as much as you’d like.

With these new games, the list continues to grow with more than 170 games in the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility library. You can view the list of Xbox 360 games that are currently playable on the Xbox One here.

New games will be added to the ever growing list whenever they are ready, and there is no set schedule of when they’ll be added. There are 4 more popular games on their way after Black Ops’ backwards compatible release, and have been confirmed to the program, which are:

  • BioShock
  • BioShock 2
  • BioShock Infinite
  • Skate 3

These games are definitely ones to look forward to as they are undoubtedly more popular than a lot on the list. People have made it very clear that they want to see even more popular games being added such as Bethesda’s beloved The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Rockstar’s smash hit Red Dead Redemption being added to the program. Each of the desired have 150,000 and 140,000 votes, respectively on the Xbox Feedback site.

As always, we will keep you updated when we find out more information and any additional games to be added! Let us know down below in the comments if you’re excited for these new games! Perhaps you’re not too impressed with the line up? We’d love to hear from you!
