Xbox One’s backward compatibility program has provided us with revivals of many fantastic last-gen titles, but one obscure title is back: Too Human.

Dennis Dyack’s unparalleled launch disaster is coming to Xbox One backward compatibility, and it’s free!

Due to legal complications with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, Too Human’s developer Silicone Knights lost the rights to the Norse mythology title. The result of the fierce 2012 legal battle ended with the developer having to recall and destroy copies of the game.

Originally planned as one part of a trilogy, Too Human is a famous gaming disaster that, weirdly, isn’t as bad as you might remember. It certainly isn’t good, but it’s a unique title that may be worth playing. Especially since Xbox is making it free!

What else could Xbox possibly make backward compatible?!
