New Xbox One Backward Compatible Releases Ending After Final Wave That Includes Asura's Wrath

The spirit of retro gaming will live on with Project Scarlett though.

New Xbox One backward compatibility releases will be ending after a final wave of games, Microsoft announced today. The popular program, which helped to separate the Xbox One from the PlayStation 4, will be concluding at around 570 games.

Highlights from the final round of releases including Super Robot Fighter 2, Skate, Enslaved, and Asura's Wrath. If you're a masochist, you can also play Too Human, which famously helped to tank Silicon Knights.

You can find the complete list below. Check it out.

  • Asura's Wrath
  • Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
  • Enchanted Arms
  • Enslaved
  • Farcry Classic + Instincts Predator
  • Infinite Undiscovery
  • King Kong
  • PoP Forgotten Sands
  • Skate
  • Star Ocean Last Hope
  • Super Puzzle Fighter 2
  • Syndicate
  • Too Human (free)
  • Unreal Tournament

Microsoft's backward compatibility originally became available in 2015. In 2017, another update added games from the original Xbox library. A handful of games have received Xbox One X enhancements, including popular titles like Witcher 2, Fallout 3, and Red Dead Redemption. If you haven't had a chance to check them out, you really should, because they are really quite good.

If you're feeling sad about the end of backward compatibility, don't worry, it will live on with Project Scarlett, which launches next year. One way or another, the spirit of retro gaming will continue.
