Microsoft has added more games with backwards compatibility for the Xbox One.

10 new games have been included in the program this month. As provided by GameSpot, check them out below.

  • "Aegis Wing"
  • "Age of Booty"
  • "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive"
  • "Jeremy McGrath's Offroad"
  • "Sam & Max Save the World"
  • "Skullgirls"
  • "Small Arms"
  • "Soulcalibur"
  • "Space Giraffe"
  • "The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings"

With these 10 new games, the Xbox One's backwards compatibility library now showcases 130 titles, GameSpot reported. In addition, Microsoft announced that "The Witcher 2" will be available for free for users until Feb. 5.

Microsoft also confirmed that it will unveil new games into the backwards compatibility listings "as they become available," instead of on a pre-determined monthly release date, the news outlet noted.

The new Xbox One Experience update that was rolled out in November featured backwards compatibility support alongside an initial lineup of 104 games and other new features, GameSpot wrote. 16 new games were added in December.

Microsoft management announced in past interviews that they intend to boost Xbox One console sales through backwards compatibility. However, the effect of this feature in this department "remains to be seen," GameSpot noted.

New Xbox One Update - Features & Improvements

Microsoft's first Xbox One update will bring back an important feature and several new additions.

According to the Verge, party chat details will make a comeback as well as a new Gamerscore leaderboard option. The leaderboard will allow users to compare their Gamerscores to their Xbox Live friends' stats. The option will emphasize who has the biggest Gamerscore growth over a 30-day period.

Microsoft also made some changes to its home and pinned sections in the Xbox One dashboard, the news outlet added. Users can now reorganize individual pins, while pinned items are now accessible even though you are offline. That will be helpful when Xbox Live is down.

Other minor improvements include the activity feed, which will now prompt users when there's a new item to check out, a feature similar to the Xbox app on Windows 10, the Verge further reported. Game hubs are updated to easily view who's broadcasting on Twitch, and users can now hide games from the ready-to-install lineup.

Updates are in store next week for those using the Windows 10 Xbox One app, the Verge wrote. Xbox News items have been added to the activity feed, along with improvements to the trending section to prioritize popular Xbox Live content. There's also a new compact mode that will allow users to minimize the app so it appears like a small messaging panel on the Windows 10 PC while you're doing other tasks.
