Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 now backwards compatible on Xbox One

Solid copy.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is finally backwards compatible on Xbox One.

Infinity Ward's 2011 first-person shooter was one of the most-requested games to be added to the Xbox One backwards compatible list - a fact the people behind the Xbox UK Twitter account had some fun with last night.

To coincide with the launch, Modern Warfare 3 is on sale as part of Microsoft's Deals With Gold promotion - £12.49 down from £24.99. (Expect a 10.75GB download if you're grabbing Modern Warfare 3 from the Xbox Games Store.)

The addition of Modern Warfare 3 to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list means all of the Modern Warfare games apart from Modern Warfare 2 are available to play on Xbox One. Now, why would Modern Warfare 2 be absent? Because Activision is working on Modern Warfare 2 Remastered, that's why.
