Xbox Backwards Compatibility Adds 70+ More Games Today As Microsoft Ends The Program

As part of Microsoft’s 20th anniversary of Xbox broadcast, the company announced that 70+ additional original Xbox and Xbox 360 titles have been added to the backwards compatibility library in what looks to be the single biggest day for new additions in the history of the program. It’s also the last batch of new additions, as Microsoft will no longer add more games to the program as it focuses its efforts elsewhere going ahead.

The games are available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and all of them support Auto HDR, while many get a resolution enhancement boost. Additionally, FPS Boost has been added for 11 of the titles added today and 26 from the existing library. The third big piece of news was that FPS Boost is launching now on Xbox Cloud Gaming for 33 titles, including Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, among others.
