And Alan Wake's American Nightmare is being sent to Quantum Break pre-orders

Microsoft added three Xbox 360 titles to its list of backward compatible games supported on Xbox One, including Remedy's excellent Alan Wake, the legendary Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and arcade classic Pac-Man.

Alan Wake compatibility arrives just in time for the release of Remedy's Quantum Break early next month. Last month, Microsoft announced plans to bundle the titles:

Every copy of Quantum Break for Xbox One will come with a full-game download for Alan Wake for Xbox 360, plus its two add-on packs, The Signal and The Writer, playable on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility. Fans who pre-order Quantum Break for Xbox One at participating retailers or through the Xbox Store will also receive a full-game download of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare for Xbox 360.

That full-game download of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is going out now to those who pre-ordered the game.

Originally released for the original PlayStation in 1997, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was ported to the Xbox Live Arcade platform in 2007.
