Microsoft has been doing every Xbox One owner a solid with the backwards compatible features of late. We’ve seen new games being added regularly, and we’ve also seen improved performance and super-useful features such as screenshots and DVR being added to the newly revived last-gen titles. In short, Microsoft is on the ball with this backwards compatible lark, despite some bumps in the road.
The Xbox team is pushing the envelope even further with some new additions to the library, but that’s not all. There’s a change in how games will be added to the Xbox One’s library. Writing on the Major Nelson blog, Xbox Director of Programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb explained that instead of monthly dump date for new titles, they’ll just be added as and when they’re ready for primetime. Sweet stuff.
The new additions to the service have been listed below, but you’ll also want to listen up to the next part: The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is free for most Xbox One players (excluding Japan) to download until February 5th. Again, sweet stuff indeed.

- Sam & Max Save the World
