The next Batch of Original Xbox Titles Is Coming to Xbox One in Spring 2018

Microsoft has already announced an estimate for more Original Xbox titles on the Xbox One. The yet unknown games will join greats like KoToR, Prince of Persia, and more.


has just released 13 original Xbox titles on its new console, but it's not stopping there. The company has already announced the next wave of releases, which will land in Spring 2018.

The games will join titles such as Knights of the Old Republic, Red Faction II, Psychonauts, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and more. With the release of the Xbox One X, players will be able to experience them at up to 16 times the pixel count.

However, Microsoft is making it abundantly clear that these are not remasters. Though there are some tweaks for modern TVs, the content and graphics of the games will remain the same. The idea is to keep the same elements gamers love while unifying the console experience.

As such, you'll be able to put discs straight into the and play, if you still have them. If you don't own the disc, they'll be a reasonable $9.99 on the .

Not Driving Sales

Unfortunately, online multiplayer won't be available, nor will other Xbox Live services. Of course, nor will achievements, because they didn't exist then.

Despite the additions, backward compatibility is yet to reach mainstream success. Ars Technica research from earlier this year suggests only 1.5% of user's time is spent playing them.

However, with Microsoft seemingly embracing its feature and pushing more titles, that could easily change. Alongside original Xbox titles, Assassin's Creed, Fallout 3, Halo 3 and Oblivion will all get Enhanced releases next month.
