Microsoft continues its steady rollout of backwards compatible games for Xbox One. Major Nelson announced on Twitter that one new Xbox 360 title is now playable on the current-gen console, and it’s a popular one: Burnout Revenge.
Originally released on Xbox and PS2 in 2005, Revenge expanded on the series by introducing new mechanics like traffic-checking and the Traffic Attack mode. The Xbox 360 port, which was released the following year, is the one to receive backwards compatibility and includes a handful of additional features over the original version.
Burnout Revenge was very well received by critics on its initial release. GameSpot awarded it a 9.1/10 in our original Burnout Revenge review and said, “Burnout Revenge might not be the revolution that Burnout 3 was, but in the end, it changes more than enough to make it feel like a very different game. It’s a technical marvel, but more importantly than that, it’s one of the most exciting racing games ever made.”
If you own a 360 copy of Burnout Revenge, you can pop that into your Xbox One and begin playing. The game is also available purchase from the Xbox Store. You can download a digital copy of the title for US $10 / £10 / AU $14.95.
Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature has proven to be very popular, and Microsoft has been expanding it at a steady rate. Last week, the company added two new 360 titles to the BC catalog: Saints Row 2 and Dragon Age II. Those arrived shortly after the second wave of original Xbox BC games, which included Jade Empire, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and Conker: Live & Reloaded.
