All three are also on sale, so you can get them for cheap now if you’ve been eager to try them out.
The newest batch of games added to the Xbox One’s backward compatibility list is comprised of titles that were generally not all that well received when they came out, but managed to garner a cult following due to their unique takes on their genre, as well as their distinct aesthetic and style, as confirmed by Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb on Twitter.
Well, okay, that description applies to only two out of the three games that is in this batch, but I think that’s good enough. The three games are: The Darkness, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, and Duke Nukem Forever (a game that was famously panned back in the day when it came out).
You might have noticed a theme here, and yes, yes, all three of these games were in fact published by 2K. All three are playable via disc and digitally, and you can buy them on the Xbox Store now (in fact, all three are on sale isn’t now too, if you’re looking to try them out).
The Darkness, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, and Duke Nukem Forever are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today (and all three are currently on sale) https://t.co/qPMRNs2ZLo pic.twitter.com/z4sEROLxUs
