‘Fallout: New Vegas’ Among the Latest Group of Xbox One Backwards Compatible Titles

Earlier today, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb announced via Twitter that eight new Xbox 360 titles are now playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.

The biggest standout amongst the latest crop of games to qualify for the program is Fallout: New Vegas, the 2010 entry in the Fallout series that takes place in the post-apocalyptic equivalent of Las Vegas. Developer Obsidian Entertainment has quite the RPG pedigree; the New Vegas development team included members who had worked on the original Fallout and Fallout 2, and Obsidian went on to make Pillars of Eternity and South Park: The Stick of Truth.


Another noteworthy game on the list is Joe Danger, the 3D motorbike side-scrolling stunt racing/platforming game that also happens to be made by developer Hello Games, makers of the upcoming No Man’s Sky. While it is fascinating to play Joe Danger just to see how different it is from No Man’s Sky, Joe Danger is a great game on its own merits and is definitely worth checking out.


The third recommendation from the list is Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, a double pack of two side-scrolling beat-em-ups from Capcom, Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom and Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara. The games are set in the D&D Mystara setting, and combine traditional side-scrolling combat with RPG-like progression systems and equipable gear.


Here is the full list of Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One as of today:

Blood Knights
Comic Jumper
Crystal Quest
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara
Fallout: New Vegas
I Am Alive
Joe Danger
Red Faction: Battlegrounds
