Xbox One Adds Three More Backwards Compatible Games Including Fable Heroes

A soccer sim and racing game also join the fray.

Microsoft has added three more games to the Xbox backwards compatibility program, expanding the library of older Xbox games available on the Xbox One.

The three Xbox 360 games coming to the Xbox ne includes Sensible World of Soccer, Grid Autosport, and Fable Heroes. If you already own any of these games, either physically or on digital, then these games can be played right now. Otherwise, you'll have to purchase them digitally from the Xbox store.

Sensible World of Soccer might not have the draw of say FIFA or PES, but it has a kind name and is still a soccer game you can play while the World Cup is happening right now. Meanwhile, Fable Heroes is a Fable spinoff that gives the series a more comical look and replaces the RPG elements with hack-and-slash mechanics, and Grid Autosport is Codemasters' popular racing sim.

Since Microsoft started allowing backward compatibility on its platforms, it has secretly become one of the Xbox One's defining features. Hopefully we'll have even more games in the future as Microsoft continues to support backwards compatibility.
