Rumor: New Xbox backward-compatible games include Morrowind, Destroy All Humans

Recently Xbox has made a big announcement regarding backward compatibility and turns out there is a whole flock of games coming our way as part of Backward Compatibility on Xbox One program.

Upon checking, it hasn't hit the Australian store yet, but hopefully it will overnight.

Microsoft has taken to their website blog and has announced that fans of some of the classic games will receive Xbox One X Enhanced updates. And up until now only 13 games launched for Xbox have been made available for backward compatibility.

Following that, one batch of games were given backward compatibility for old games.

You'll be able to play all of these games on Xbox One through the disc you already own, or you can purchase them digitally in the Microsoft Store.

Then on April 26 you've got these others: Destroy All Humans!, Full Spectrum Warrior, Mercenaries: Playground Of Destruction, MX Unleashed, Panzer Elite Action: Fields Of Glory, Star Wars: Battlefront, Star Wars: Battlefront II, Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy, Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter, Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic II, and Star Wars: Republic Commando.

Four of those titles come from publisher THQ Nordic (formerly published by THQ), and the last game on the list, Panzer Elite Action, only appears on the United Kingdom version of the Xbox marketplace.

Cross-platform play between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 was once again placed in the spotlight last month, as Microsoft continued to push for Sony to allow the feature to happen in massively popular multiplayer shooter Fortnite.
