Update: Microsoft announced today that 19 original Xbox games will join the list of Xbox One backward compatible titles later this month. The list includes the five titles that leaked earlier today, plus 14 more, including Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Orta and Blinx: The Time Sweeper.

Original story: Later today, Microsoft plans to reveal news about Xbox One backward compatibility and which original Xbox games are coming to the console next. Based on store listings at the official Xbox website, it appears at least five more original Xbox titles may soon be playable on Xbox One.

The titles that have recently appeared on the Xbox Games Store, some of which carry release dates of April 10, 2018, are:

  • The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind
  • Destroy All Humans!
  • Full Spectrum Warrior
  • MX Unleashed
  • Panzer Elite Action

Four of those titles come from publisher THQ Nordic (formerly published by THQ), and the last game on the list, Panzer Elite Action, only appears on the U.K. version of the Xbox marketplace.

We’ve reached out to Microsoft to confirm if those Xbox games are indeed coming to the Xbox One backward compatibility list today, and what else might be added to the library. Currently, 13 original Xbox games are playable on Xbox One.

Microsoft plans to officially reveal news about Xbox One backward compatible Xbox games during today’s episode of Inside Xbox, which streams at 3:30 p.m. PT on Facebook, Mixer, Twitch, Twitter and YouTube.
