Complete list of backwards compatible games for Xbox One

Microsoft’s Xbox One console is able to play a number of Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles as a result of its backwards compatibility functionality.

This means Xbox One owners can revisit some of the Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles they already own, or discover some classics they might have missed out on first time round.

The catalogue ranges from Xbox Live Arcade gems like Castle Crashers and Braid, to AAA blockbusters including Mass Effect and Red Dead Redemption.

Since November 2015, the Xbox 360 games included in Xbox Live’s monthly Games with Gold promotion have been backwards compatible, meaning Xbox One owners can potentially get a total of four free games a month.

How can I play Xbox 360 and original Xbox games on my Xbox One?

If you own the physical version of any of the Xbox titles listed below, you can put the disc into your Xbox One which will then download a digital file to the hard drive. You will need to have the game disc in the console’s drive in order to play it.

Should you own the digital version of a backwards compatible Xbox title, it will show up automatically on the ‘Ready to Install’ list in the ‘My Games and Apps’ section of the Xbox One dashboard. You won’t need a disc in the console if you already own the game digitally. However, there are a handful of games that are only backwards compatible if you have the disc. These are marked on the list.

What about Achievements and old game saves?

If you’re a completionist or Gamerscore fiend, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be able to unlock Xbox 360 Achievements as normal.

The Xbox One will also recognise old Xbox 360 save files so you can pick up playing where you left off, as long as you’re using the same Xbox Live account.

To do this, you’ll need to have enabled Cloud Saving on your Xbox 360 console and then ensure the relevant game save has been uploaded to the cloud. Be aware that Cloud Saving on Xbox 360 requires an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Game saves from the original 2001 Xbox will not transfer over.

What if I don’t have an Xbox 360 or original Xbox console?

If you don’t own an Xbox 360 or original Xbox, you can still buy backwards compatible games digitally from the Xbox website to play on your Xbox One. Clicking on the game titles in our list will take you to the relevant page on Xbox.com.

Do I have to pay?

Xbox One backwards compatibility is a free feature.

You don’t need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to enjoy backwards compatible titles – unless you want to play an Xbox 360 game’s online multiplayer mode (which was the case back on the Xbox 360 anyway).

Online multiplayer modes on original Xbox games are unavailable as the Live service for this particular console has been deactivated.

Will there be more games?

New titles are added often, and we’ll update the list as backwards compatible games are announced.
