The official reveal of Battlefield V yesterday may overshadow any backward compatible news for games in the series, but an announcement is still welcome. This time, Larry Hryb has announced that Battlefield 1943 will be joining Xbox One backward compatibility starting today. It’s just one game this time, but it’s a pretty good one.

Battlefield 1943 was developed by DICE as a multiplayer-only entry in the franchise. It includes two opposing teams—either the United States Marine Corps (USMC) or the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN)—battling on a few different maps across the pacific. Battlefield 1943 will also be available in the EA Access Vault beginning today for subscribers.

As of May 1, all gamerscore earned in Xbox 360 games will now count towards your monthly leaderboard totals on Xbox One. This should be some extra incentive to jump back into your favorite games.
