A curated list of original Xbox games will be available on Xbox One tomorrow, as part of the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program, featuring thirteen fan favorite titles.
Aimed to take advantage of the power of the game system with up to 4x the pixel count on Xbox One and Xbox One S, and up to 16X the pixel count on upcoming Xbox One X — fans will be able to play the original Xbox games on Xbox One through the disc you already own, or you can purchase the games digitally in the Microsoft Store.
Xbox Live services such as online multiplayer that were available on the original Xbox will not be available since these are original games and not remastered. However, offline multiplayer scenarios such as co-op and system-link are supported as they were originally.
Below is a list of the first games releasing on the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program, while another curated list is due out in Spring 2018.
Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
Dead to Rights
Grabbed by the Ghoulies
King of Fighters Neowave
Ninja Gaiden Black
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Red Faction II
Sid Meier’s Pirates!
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Additionally, to help celebrate the launch, Xbox Game Pass members get access to Ninja Gaiden Black for free as a part of their membership to the game subscription service.
Furthermore, when Xbox One X launches on Tuesday, November 7, you’ll be able to run select Xbox 360 games at a higher resolution, 9x the original pixel count and with expanded color details.
