In June the backwards compatible game library of the Xbox One exceeded 200 titles, with the addition of Brain Challenge, Babel Rising, Flashback, and the massively popular titles Left 4 Dead and Portal 2. In fact, the first week of June also brought at least three low-key Xbox 360 titles for the Xbox One, Anomaly Warzone Earth, Aqua, and Lazy Raiders, for players to enjoy, and perhaps reminisce.
Here’s a glimpse on what’s new and available:
“With a brutal combat system, stunning art style, and a deeply compelling story, Bloodforge empowers you to slaughter hordes of demonic soldiers, deformed worshippers, and the gods themselves, using ferocious Rage Kills, devastating Rune attacks, and furious Weapon Combos. Help seal Crom’s fate – and the fate of the rest of the world – in this dark, visceral story of revenge, betrayal, and destiny.”
“Buy now to experience high-flying platform gaming combined with extreme stunt driving action in GripShift!

“An intense cyberpunk RPG on the red planet! Mars War Logs takes you to Mars, nearly a century after the cataclysm that threw the planet and its colonists into chaos. Water has become the most precious resource on the arid red planet, with a few companies fighting a perpetual war for its control.

Craft armors and weapons, recruit companions to help you in your quest, and plunge in a thrilling adventure offering a huge variety of quests. In dynamic, real-time combat, face formidable opponents and the most fearsome creatures of Mars. The fate of all colonies of Mars now lies in your hands…”
This “extremely challenging” endeavor is of course expected to continue further throughout the year, improving its leverage on game library expansion in competition to a certain non-backwards compatible game console.
