Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Program Latest News & Updates: ‘Burnout Paradise’, ‘Rayman Legends’ And ‘Pure’ Added
There should be three new game titles popping up in the game libraries of Xbox One gamers following the addition of “Burnout Paradise”, “Rayman Legends” and “Pure” recently. Ironically, “Burnout Paradise” is part of the upcoming Xbox Games with Gold lineup for December.
The addition of the three new titles come from Major Nelson who made the announcement via Twitter. Of the three, the addition of “Burnout Paradise” comes as no surprise considering plans to bring it to the Xbox One came out as early as July 2015.
Hence, gamers who own either “Burnout Paradise” or “Rayman Legends” should see them pop up in their Xbox One game libraries soon. For the ones who don’t own these game titles, getting hold of their original Xbox 360 game disc version will be required. They are not available digitally.
For reference purposes, “Burnout Paradise” is priced at $15 while “Rayman Legends” costs about $40. The addition of the new titles bumps up the games available in the Xbox backwards compatibility program to 280, GameSpot reported.
While the addition of the three games to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program is welcome news, there are a couple of high profile games that are not coming for now. These are “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3” and “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion”. There is no projected date on when (and if) these games will be added to the program.
“Burnout Paradise”, “Rayman Legends” and “Pure” follow the November additions to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program. Previously added were “Mass Effect 2”, “Mass Effect 3” and “Blue Dragon” in November.
The series of developments are fitting considering the programs recently turned one following the launch of the “New Xbox One Experience” update. Moving forward, the Xbox One backwards compatibility program is expected to be carried on to Project Scorpio, the next game console that Microsoft will be offering in 2017.
