Bioshock trilogy joins Xbox One backwards compatibility

Three months to the date after Bioshock: The Collection, Xbox Live’s Major Nelson has announced that all three Bioshock games will be joining the Xbox One backwards compatibility program starting today. According to Nelson, the Bioshock trilogy sends the total number of Xbox 360 games playable on Xbox One to over 300.

Like every backwards compatible game on Xbox One, each Bioshock title will be free to play on Xbox One if you own a digital or physical version of the game for Xbox 360.

When the backwards compatibility program launched last year, the Xbox team teased the eventual release of the Bioshock games, but when the remaster was announced last summer, many thought the backwards compatible versions were doomed. Thankfully, 2K and the Xbox team made it happen for those who bought the games last generation.

For those looking to buy the Xbox 360 versions, Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite are available digitally at the Microsoft Store. If you’ve yet to purchase any of the Bioshock games and you’re looking for a place to start, it’s actually cheaper to buy Bioshock: The Collection if you want digital versions of the game.

What do you think of the first 300 backwards compatible games on Xbox One? Which are your favorites, and which Xbox 360 classics are you still waiting for? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below or on Twitter!
