Xbox One Backwards Compatibility just got a major boost, as Microsoft adds four huge classics to the scheme.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 are all now backwards compatible on Xbox One.
This includes all of the original campaigns and multiplayer.
Even better news is that the Halo games come with free DLC, which means even more maps for multiplayer.
The Halo series took longer than expected to come to backwards compatibility, as 343 spent more time making sure they were up to scratch.
“We know everyone is very eager to get their hands on the Xbox One back-compat release of Halo: CE Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, and Halo 4,” reads a recent 343 blog post.
“We are eager to get them into your hands! The Xbox back-compat team is hard at work on final polish and we continue to work closely with them to help test and evaluate all four games for launch.
“We’re taking extra time to ensure the experience lives up to fan expectations but I hear we’re making great progress and release should be getting closer.”
The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program currently boasts over 400 games and continues to provide regular new additions.
And while a lot of the most requested titles have now been added, Microsoft still have plans to add a few more.
The most popular games not available as part of the scheme include the Call of Duty Modern Warfare trilogy, Skyrim and Batman: Arkham City.
More recently, Microsoft announced plans to add Fable Anniversary to the scheme.
That’s according to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, who said that Fable Anniversary is being worked on right now.
“Hey Phil can we expect Fable anniversary to go backwards compatible on the Xbox One any time soon I have been waiting ages,” asked one fan on Twitter.
Spencer replied: “This should come, it’s being worked on now.”
Fable Anniversary is one of the most requested games on Backwards Compatibility, securing 34,000 votes from fans.
