Xbox One Backwards Compatibility update: ANOTHER classic game joins the list

The  backwards compatibility games list just got a little bigger.

Splinter Cell Conviction is the latest Xbox 360 game to join the Xbox One backwards compatibility list.

The game is available from the Xbox One online store, and can also be played by inserting the original disc.

Anybody who downloaded the game in the Xbox 360 era will find the new release in the ‘My Games and Apps’ section of the dashboard.

Even better news is that Splinter Cell Conviction is available at a discounted price as part of the latest Xbox One sale.

Fans can grab the Xbox 360 release for just £4.49 from the Xbox store. 

The sale ends on February 12, so you’d better hurry if you want to make a big saving.

“In Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction, all of the rules have changed, as the Splinter Cell story takes a dramatic turn that will reinvent the franchise forever,” reads the official description.

“Sam Fisher, now a renegade from the law and without his trusted bag of tools, must race against time to thwart a deadly terrorist plot that threatens millions.

“Uniting revolutionary gameplay enhancements with a high-octane, no-holds-barred storyline, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction arms you to the teeth with new high-tech weaponry and lethal skills of an elite operative and invites you to enter a dangerous world where justice means making your own rules.”

The news comes as Microsoft pledges to make more original Xbox games backwards compatible.

Microsoft has assured fans that more original Xbox games will be added in the future.

However, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, there are complications with licenses.

“There are a number of OG games in BC pipeline, they won’t drop as often as the 360 games but team is working to validate and get permissions,” Spencer tweeted.

“More complicated with some just due to the age of the rights etc.”

Original Xbox releases joined the backwards compatibility lineup last year. Compatible games include Ninja Gaiden Black, Bloodrayne 2, Crimson Skies, Dead to Rights and Grabbed by the Ghoulies.
