Three new Backward Compatibility games come to Xbox One

New games have arrived for the Xbox One with regards to the backward compatibility feature. The games were recently announced by Major Nelson on Twitter, and they are some of the most fun titles from the Xbox 360. The games in question are Bejeweled 3, DeathSpank T.O.V. & Gatling Gears. For those who are unaware, Bejeweled 3 is a puzzle, DeathSpank T.O.V. is an action adventure video game, and Gatlin Gears is a shooter.

Bejeweled 3, DeathSpank T.O.V. & Gatling Gears come to Xbox One

These three games were great on the Xbox 360, and we have no doubt they’ll be just as fun on the Xbox One. However, outside of Bejeweled 3, we’re not certain if the other titles have aged well. Compared to the new games on the Xbox One, they might have a dated look.

The following are the description of all games:

Gatling Gears

When the Empire begins its reign of destruction in a thirst for natural resources, it’s up to Max Brawley, a retired Gatling Gear pilot, to stop them. Together with his niece and his trusty Gatling Gear unit he must fight his way to the heart of the Empire and eliminate the destruction at its source.

Bear in mind that all backward compatibility games, when bought, can be played on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. No need to purchase the same game twice.
