Microsoft announces new wave of backward compatible Original Xbox games for Xbox One

Morrowind! Battlefront! Conker! And 16 more!

Microsoft has revealed a new wave of backward compatible Original Xbox games coming to Xbox One.

A total of 19 more Original Xbox titles will receive Xbox One backward compatibility support, joining the 13 that arrived last year, and these will launch in two batches later this month.

April 17th brings Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Breakdown, Conker: Live & Reloaded, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Hunter: The Reckoning, Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Orta, and SSX 3.


Then, on April 26th, comes Destroy All Humans!, Full Spectrum Warrior, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, MX Unleashed, Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Star Wars Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II, and Star Wars Republic Commando.

According to Microsoft, these Original Xbox games will feature enhanced visuals in their backward-compatible guise, and will display at "up to 4X the pixel count on Xbox One and Xbox One S, and up to 16X the pixel count on Xbox One X".

As always with Microsoft's backward-compatible titles, all Original Xbox games will be made available to purchase digitally on the Xbox Store, or you can simply insert the original disc into your Xbox One if you still have it lying around.
