Microsoft announces 16 backwards compatible games coming to Xbox Cloud Gaming


In a recent blog post over on the Xbox Blog, Microsoft has announced that 16 original Xbox and Xbox 360 games have made their way to Xbox Cloud Gaming.

For those that currently have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you will be able to play the following games through Xbox Cloud Gaming:

  • 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)

Some real classics on that list! I can already see many dropping multiple hours on the Elder Scrolls games alone!

Oh, and if you have ever played any of the above games and were connected to the Xbox Network, you will be able to bring past saves into the cloud as well. So, you can pick up where you last left off!

"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." - Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief.

Microsoft also announced that more backward compatible games are on their way, so the above list is just the beginning.

Being able to play classic games as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription is incredible. The fact that you can play them on the cloud is outstanding!

I am excited to see what other classics Microsoft will bring to the Cloud Gaming scene.
