Three more games added to Xbox One's Backward Compatibility program library

Xbox One owners who miss some of their games from their old Xbox 360 consoles may want to check the former's Backward Compatibility library.

According to a report from Gamespot, Microsoft added three more titles to the growing number of backward compatible games for Xbox One. Joining over three hundred other games are "Assault Heroes 2," "Commanders: Attack of the Genos," and "TimeShift," which means these three are now playable on the Xbox One console.

Players who already own the titles digitally can access them through the "Ready to Download" list, while those who do not may purchase them through Xbox.com or via the Xbox One console. Both "Assault Heroes 2" and "Commanders: Attack of the Genos" cost $5 each, while TimeShift carries a heavier price tag of $30.

First launched in 2008, "Assault Heroes 2" is an arcade-style, top-down shooter video game that was a follow-up to its predecessor, "Assault Heroes." Players now having the ability to hi-jack units from their enemies is the main difference that the sequel has compared to the first title.

Sierra Online's "Commanders: Attack of the Genos," on the other hand, is a turn-based strategy game that features head-to-head warfare using infantry and missile launchers for weapons.

Meanwhile, Sierra Entertainment's "TimeShift" is a first-person shooter game that featured scientists who traveled to the past to change history's timeline.

Xbox's attempt at bringing in more titles from Xbox 360 to Xbox One is apparently in full swing, as three other titles were added just last week. "RoboBlitz," "Contra," and "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" became last week's additions, with the latter being one of the most requested among fans. Other titles that were recently transferred to Xbox One include "Far Cry 3," "Civilization Revolution," and "Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet."

To date, there are over 320 games Xbox 360 that are included in the Backward Compatibility program, which was launched in November 2015.
