Microsoft has added another nine classic Xbox 360 titles to the ever expanding Xbox One backwards compatibility library.
As per usual, community manager Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb delivered the news of the new games arrivals on Twitter.
While in 2017 the biggest release so far has undoubtedly been Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but this week that massive addition was joined by the following nine games:
TimeShift, Assault Heroes 2, Commanders: Attack, Dead Space 2, Dead Space 3, Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts, Cabela’s Alaskan Adventure, Cabela’s Hunting Expeditions and Cabela’s Survival SoK.
Obviously, the two stand out additions from the week are Dead Space 2 and 3, which come as a nice surprise for anyone who might have been tempted to jump back into the original Dead Space following the reveal of Call of Duty: WW2.
And for anyone who doesn’t understand the link, Sledgehammer Games was founded in 2009 by leads at Visceral, the creators of Dead Space.
However, nothing more has been mentioned on the subject, for the time being, so you’ll have to make do with these six new Xbox 360 games for the time being.

However, if you don’t own the games or indeed any of the Xbox 360 titles previously announced as backwards compatible then there is still hope for you.
All you have to do is head over to the Xbox 360 backwards compatibility store on the Xbox store, making it easier than ever to search for and download these classic titles directly on your Xbox One.
So if you’re interested in trying out a Xbox 360 classic but don’t already own a copy of the game, you can still give it a go like everyone else.
Writing on Twitter earlier this year Phil Spencer also provided more details on how the backwards compatibility service would work on Project Scorpio, which has been dubbed Microsoft’s most powerful console ever created.
But with the most recent release of Scorpio specs from Digital Foundry Xbox users have been given some even better info.
According to the Xbox hardware team, Xbox users existing library of games will run “smoother, look better and load faster” on Xbox One Scorpio.
Hopefully, as we edge closer to the release, which many believe will be at the end of the year, we’ll learn more about how these services might work.
