While gamers anxiously await the release of Assassin’s Creed Origins later this fall, there are plenty of Assassin’s Creed titles to enjoy in the meantime. In particular, Xbox One owners can now enjoy Assassins Creed Brotherhood, since the game has been included in the list of backward compatible Xbox 360 games.
It’s been almost a month since the last round of backward compatible games, so gamers are excited to be getting five new backward compatible titles to fill their time. Of the games that were added today, Assassins Creed Brotherhood is easily the most recognizable.
Granted, those who picked up the Assassins Creed: Ezio Collection on Xbox One won’t need to make use of the Assassins Creed Brotherhood backward compatibility, but for those who were holding out, it’s nice to see the game added to the list. The other titles added to the growing list of backward compatible games on Xbox One are Blazing Angels, Cyber Trooper Virtual On Oratorio Tangram, Radiant Silvergun, and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3.
Last month, Assassin’s Creed 3 was announced as backward compatible just as the game was announced as one of June’s free Games with Gold. Sadly, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood won’t be getting the same treatment with this month’s Games with Gold.
The lull in new backward compatible games was a bit surprising after the Xbox One feature was discussed so heavily during E3 a couple weeks ago. During the Microsoft press conference, the gaming giant reaffirmed that Xbox 360 backward compatibility will be available on the upcoming Xbox One X, and also announced that backward compatibility for original Xbox games will also be coming soon. While the original Xbox backward compatibility lineup won’t be as significant as the Xbox 360 offerings, Xbox fans are still excited about the opportunity to revisit many iconic original Xbox games.
Interestingly, Assassin’s Creed Origins was the most talked about game from this year’s E3, so it’s safe to say the franchise is still very popular among gamers. And considering the fact that many hold Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood as one of the best in the series, it will be fun for many Xbox One gamers to revisit the game in preparation for the release of Assassin’s Creed Origins in October.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is now available on Xbox One backward compatibility.
