Xbox One adds Halo Wars and more to backwards compatibility

Three more games have been added to the now flourishing backwards compatibility program.

Halo Wars is now available to the general public after just under two weeks in the Xbox Preview program. Alongside Halo Wars, Xbox Live’s Major Nelson revealed that Soul Calibur II HD and King of Fighters ’98 will also be available on Xbox One later today.

Soul Calibur II is currently on sale for $4.99 USD as part of the spring sale, so if you’re interested in picking the game up, it’d be wise to do so before the sale ends tomorrow morning.

Unfortunately, Halo Wars is maintaining it’s $19.99 price tag for the foreseeable future. If you have the patience, though, the original game will likely be bundled in with pre-orders for Halo Wars 2, which is due out sometime before the end of the year.

While today’s backwards compatibility additions might not knock anyone’s socks off, the Xbox team has been adding more and more titles to the program on a weekly basis. At this rate, it’s just a matter of time before the highly-anticipated Call of Duty, Bioshock and Skate games making their long overdue backwards compatibility debut.
