Since announcing Xbox One backwards compatibility, players have been asking for some high-profile games. While the majority of inquiries relate to the Call of Duty series, the Final Fantasy series was another hot series. Today, Microsoft announced that Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be backward compatible next week. In addition, these games and Civilization Revolution are getting an Xbox One X Enhanced update to take advantage of the world's most powerful console.
Backward compatibility opens Xbox One for a variety of games that span three generations of Microsoft consoles. Despite the hardware differences, it remains a standout feature that allows you to play a select library of legacy games on Xbox One. While most of them are Xbox 360 titles, there are also some original Xbox games. To date, players have enjoyed well over a billion hours of backward-compatible games, and the catalog now includes five hundred Xbox 360 games, 25 Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 titles, and 32 original Xbox Classic players following Blitz, Snow, and other heroes to be destroyed by a godlike enemy. Cursed and seen as enemies of society, they must rely on each other. Will they find the strength to free themselves from their curse and determine their own destiny, or will they succumb to this higher power?
