Xbox Cloud Gaming adds backwards compatibility titles

Microsoft's Xbox Cloud Gaming with Xbox Game Pass service is getting a major enhancement: backward compatibility. While the service previously only supported last-gen Xbox One titles, the service is now being upgraded to take advantage of the brand’s stellar back catalogue.

Not only will some titles be playable on the service, but some will also be enhanced with newly created touch controls.

What backward compatible games are on Xbox Cloud Gaming?

The new addition of Xbox Cloud Gaming backward compatibility is starting with a small collection of titles. Much like the addition of FPS Boost on Xbox Series consoles, the feature will be trickling out in short bursts.

With that said, there is still a great collection of games to choose from. While some titles are obvious Xbox exclusives, others are iconic Bethesda titles that Microsoft now owns after their huge $7.5 billion acquisition.

Here's the full list:

  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • Double Dragon Neon
  • Fable II
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Gears of War 2
  • Gears of War 3
  • Gears of War: Judgment
  • Jetpac Refuelled (touch controls enabled)
  • Kameo
  • Perfect Dark
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Viva Piñata (touch controls enabled)
  • Viva Piñata: TIP (touch controls enabled)

Will Xbox release more backward compatible games on mobile?

The launch of backward compatible games on Xbox Cloud Gaming is not a one and done. Microsoft is committed to bringing more titles to Game Pass subscribers, even games that are over a decade old. The company has already stated that “more games [are] coming soon".

“We’ve listened to the feedback, going all the way back to our earliest cloud gaming preview, and making games from previous generations available on mobile devices has been one of the most requested features by the community,” said Xbox Wire editor, Will Tuttle.
