Earlier today, Microsoft made another dozen Xbox 360 games playable on the Xbox One; these were mostly Xbox Live Arcade games, but the crown jewel of this batch was The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings. The second installment in CD Projekt RED’s Witcher saga had seen an Xbox 360 release back in May 2012, and that version is now playable on the Xbox One as well.
That’s not all, though- The Witcher 2 is also being offered for absolutely free to all Xbox users, until February 5- this isn’t an Xbox Live Gold promotion or anything, and there are no strings attached. You get the game for free, just like that. You just have to go to Xbox.com to redeem your copy. You can get the game as long as you own some Xbox, meaning that you don’t even need to own an Xbox One for this- Xbox 360 owners are welcome to the party, too.
That’s really an awesome goodwill gesture, right there.
