Sniper Elite V2, Far Cry 2 & Driver San Francisco Xbox Backwards Compatible

The Xbox Backwards Compatible game releases have started up again after a break over the holidays. Now as of January 16, 2018 we have three fresh titles available on Xbox one and further consoles sourced from the Xbox 360. This includes Sniper Elite V2, Far Cry 2 and Driver San Francisco as Xbox Backwards Compatible games. This means you can input the disc or just download them digitally if previously owned to enjoy the games once more. All of these titles are disc or digital based, you can also install previously owned digital content from them such as maps or cosmetic items from the ready to install portion of the game area. The games will run exactly like they did on Xbox 360, yet perform much better overall.

Sniper Elite V2 was the second entry in that series greatly growing the concepts of the original while helping to fully establish the franchise. Far Cry 2 was a big update for the series that helped it grow into the power house for Ubisoft it currently is. The final game was the last entry in the Driver series and hopefully we'll see more from that in the future. All the games should be available to play right away though it may take some time for the servers to fully refresh for them, but they should all be available as of the posted date above. These titles join almost 450 titles available on the program and it continues to grow all the time.
