Xbox One has been updating its compatibility and reliving some of its games back with Backward Compatibility for over a year now. In fact, the line keeps on growing as they recently added "Scarygirl" and "Skate 3" to its backward compatible titles to date. The recent compatibility update includes a download link and also game descriptions for fans to enjoy.

EA Black Box's "Skate 3" was originally released on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2010 and was a massive hit back then. That's why Microsoft is so eager to have the title released together with its additional support for both "Mass Effect 3" and "Massive Effect 2" just a couple of days ago. Meanwhile, "Scarygirl" was released in 2012 and was based on a Nathan Jurevicius graphic novel that goes by the same name, Metacritic reported.

On top of making both "Skate 3" and "Scarygirl" compatible to Xbox One, Microsoft made a partnership with EA on a very special deal. Starting from November 10 to November 20, the "San's Van Party" pack for "Skate 3" will be available on the Xbox Marketplace for no additional cost. Even "Skate 3" itself is also available on sale exclusively for Xbox Live Gold Subscribers for 16.67 percent less than the actual cost.

Last weekend marked Microsoft's backward compatibility program first-year celebration on Xbox One. It started out on November 12, 2015, with only 105 Xbox 360 game on its launch lineup. Since then, the company has been adding several titles to its extensive list which now includes "Scarygirl" and "Skate 3", which brings its total number of recently supported games to 284.

More games will soon be added to the list, Microsoft is planning to add even more title games as the months pass by, even promising to add hundreds, GameSpot reported. Both games are now available today for download alongside the other games that have been recently added by Microsoft.
