Assassin's Creed joins Xbox One backward compatibility list

Alongside Grid 2 and Dark Void

Assassin's Creed, Dark Void and Grid 2 are the newest Xbox 360 games now compatible with Xbox One, Microsoft announced this morning.

The three join Alan Wake, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Pac-Manadded late last week, on a backward compatibility list that now numbers 145 games. Backward compatibility was introduced to Xbox One in November 2015.

Those who own these games through Xbox Live Arcade or Xbox Live Games on Demand will find icons for them in their Games & Apps window on the Xbox One dashboard. If they are owned on a disc, the digital copy can be downloaded to Xbox One and played with the disc in the tray.

Assassin's Creed, which kicked off Ubisoft's blockbuster franchise, launched in 2007. Dark Void, a sci-fi third-person shooter by Airtight Games, was published by Capcom in 2010. Grid 2 is a racing simulation by Codemasters that launched in 2013, and is the sequel to 2008's Race Driver: Grid.

The full list of backward compatible games is below.
