It looks like backward compatibility is back on track. After a rather long hiatus, some amazing games are joining the service today. The highlight today has to be Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood which is just a phenomenal title. However, if you’re more into casual experiences, you’re in luck as well. According to Xbox’s Larry Hryb, titles like Blazing Angels and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 will also be playable on Xbox One today.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood continues Desmond and Ezio’s stories. Desmond’s story continues where it left off, in 2012. After escaping the Templar attack at the end of Assassin’s Creed II, Desmond Miles, Lucy Stillman, Rebecca Crane, and Shaun Hastings flee to Monteriggioni, establishing a new hideout in the ruins of the Villa Auditore. After restoring the electricity in the old tunnels under the villa, the player once again takes control of Ezio Auditore, using the new Animus. Their mission is to find the Apple of Eden and stop the Templars from acquiring it first.
