The Xbox One’s backwards compatibility list continues to grow even with over 500 titles. Added every month, highly requested titles are added in order to allow players to check out a game they missed out on the first time it hit the consoles, or for players to go down memory lane and relive some of their favorites. The latest addition is Modern Warfare 3, a Call of Duty classic that continues to be a fan-favorite since its debut on November 8, 2011. The Modern Warfare series has a niche carved out for it in the gamer community and the addition was warmly welcomed.
It’s the best selling first person action series of all-time and it has made a comeback with the epic sequel to “Game of the Year” award winner, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The multiplayer experience is reportedly better and bigger than ever, packed with maps, features and modes. It comes with an evolved co-op play with all-new spec-ops missions and leader boards as well as survival mode and an action packed combat progression unlike any other.
Popular franchises like the Mass Effect Trilogy, Batman, Dragon Age, Red Dead, etc. alongside hundreds of other titles are available on the list with more continuously making their way to our consoles. Xbox One users no longer have to switch between the two systems in order for them to enjoy old favorites.
This is how it works: Players just need to put their old 360 discs into the Xbox One and the system will read it, with no charges. Compared to PlayStation 4, there will be no re-payment for a game a player already owns. Also, a digital version of these games will be available for purchase in case you no longer have the disc or you never got to get an older title in the past.
