If you’re an Xbox One gamer waiting on Injustice 2, today’s Backward Compatibility announcements might help you wait until the game’s launch next year. Backward Compatibility lets you play select Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, often with better performance, and both Injustice: Gods Among Us and Haunted House are joining the list today.
Developed by Mortal Kombat’s NetherRealm Studios back in 2013, Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game featuring plenty of characters from DC’s comics in its roster. It let players duke it out with superpowers, and even destroy parts of the arena with special attacks. It was a huge success, and went on to get a physical only Ultimate Edition. The Ultimate Edition includes all of the game’s downloadable content, and is completely compatible with the Xbox One as well.
Injustice is only $19.99 in the Xbox Store, and it’s worth the money. Even if you don’t have any friends to fight against, the game’s story mode is set in one of the more interesting DC alternate universes – a world where Superman rules supreme. If you’d like to find a copy of the Ultimate Edition, it’s currently a mere $16 on Amazon.
Of course, if you already owned the game on the Xbox 360, there’s no need to buy it again. Simply insert the disc into your Xbox One if you own it physically, or check the Ready to Install section in My Games & Apps if you bought it digitally.
Haunted House is a remake of an Atari classic, and goes for $4.99 in the Xbox Store.
