Xbox announced two more games for the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program today. The two titles are Command & Conquer 3 and Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 from EA, and they're available starting today.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, Red Alert 3, and their respective expansions, are all playable on the Xbox One. Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb made the announcement today on Twitter.
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is a real-time strategy game released back in 2007 for PC and Xbox 360 set in the Command & Conquer universe. Red Alert 3 however is set in an alternate history Cold War between the Soviet Union, Western Allies, and Empire of the Rising Sun.
The Command & Conquer series is in the midst of a minor revival as of late. Following the poorly-received Command & Conquer Rivals for mobile smartphones, EA announced that it was working with Petroglyph Games to remaster the classic Command & Conquer games in 4K. EA originally surveyed fans on a Command & Conquer fan forum to see what they wanted in a remaster.
Meanwhile, Xbox One's Backward Compatibility library continues to grow. The ability to play Xbox 360 and original Xbox games on the Xbox One is one of the console's key features, and part of a service suite unique to the system alongside Xbox's Netflix-style Game Pass.
