Xbox One News Update and Game Release: Microsoft released more free games for their backwards compatible games this week. The said games are now ready to be played on Xbox One consoles, and this will be the last batch for this year, but expect more on 2017.

Community manager Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb delivered the good news about the arrival of games through Twitter. As part of the gaming console's backwards compatibility update, there are Xbox 360 classics that are now available for Xbox One.

The BioShock series, including BioShock, BioShock 2 and BioShock Infinite can now be enjoyed by the players who missed these games. Included also on the latest free games are Skydive, Planets Under Attack, CLANNAD, Bully Scholarship Edition, Catherine, and Raskulls.

Last week, the addition were Shadowrun, Space Ark, and Shotest Shogi. So it seems like Microsoft is intending to release more of the games by 2017. The latest nine video games released this week will be the last for 2016, as mentioned by Major Nelson.

According to his statement, Major Nelson said, "Before Xbox One Backward Compatibility team takes time off for holidays, we have 6 new releases today. Releases resume after New Year."

Well, that seems to be a fair trade, as the game developers also need to take some rest from the tedious, yet exciting job of creating video games. After the Christmas and New Year break, we can expect more from them next year.

So how do you get your hands on these games? All you need to do is head over Xbox 360 backwards compatibility store on Xbox store. Then that's it, you can browse through the games and enjoy the Xbox 360 classic games. Once downloaded, the games will be available on you Xbox One game library for easier access. These updates will definitely a great treat especially for the coming holidays.
