Far Cry 2 now backwards compatible on Xbox One

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through tom.bramwell@allgamers.com and he's also on Twitter.

Driver: San Francisco and Sniper Elite V2 also join the growing list.

Microsoft has added a trio of new Xbox 360 games to the ranks of titles that are now compatible with Xbox One.

Far Cry 2, Driver: San Francisco and Sniper Elite V2 are the latest additions, and as with existing titles on the growing list, you just need to put the original disc in the Xbox One and it will automatically download a compatibility patch.

Alternatively, if you don't own Far Cry 2 or Sniper Elite V2 already, you can just buy them through the Xbox One store for $5.99 or $29.99 respectively. Driver: San Francisco is only available digitally if previously purchased.

As you can see from the list on Major Nelson's blog, there's a huge range of Xbox 360 titles compatible with Xbox One nowadays, including heavy hitters like the Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty and Halo series.

We particularly recommend checking out the likes of Assassin's Creed, Halo 3, Fallout 3 and Oblivion if you're an Xbox One X owner, because those titles have 4K updates too. Check out our piece on the best 4K games to play on your new Xbox One X for more info.
