Xbox One owners will soon be able to play more games on their console. Microsoft has already added hundreds of titles to the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility catalogue. Now, the company is adding new titles that include “Halo: Reach,” “Portal: Still Alive,” “Fable III,” “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” and “Ms. Pac-Man.”

The arrival of “Halo: Reach” obviously puts more weight to the list announced today by Microsoft via its official blog Xbox Wire. The Xbox One backward compatibility archive is getting stronger as the company is constantly bringing exciting games for Xbox One players. Other inclusions to the backwards compatible title list are “Doritos Crash Course,” “Peggle,” “Braid,“ “Kane & Lynch 2,” “Hydro Thunder,” “Motocross Madness,” “Spelunky,” “Ticket to Ride,” “Iron Brigade,” “Zuma's Revenge” and “Splosion Man.”

Xbox Live Gold members get exclusive access to a number of selected games twice in a month. Microsoft said that the Xbox players are the heart of the Xbox community and that they deserve such exclusive collections. This time, the Xbox One players will be getting access to all the Xbox 360 games available via Games with Gold after Nov. 12. “Sacred 3” is going to be this month’s attraction as the Xbox One players will be able to play this game already.

According to Microsoft, the company will continue to add more titles and promises to bring more games in the library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility games. GameSpot reported that Microsoft has already released more than 100 Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games in November. Microsoft also suggests users to ask for the specific titles they need. Fans are the driving force to develop a better Xbox Experience so the company highlighted the website called Xbox User Voice where fans can share feedback and they can also request the games of their choice.

Microsoft revealed that players have spent more than 9 million hours playing Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One since the launch of its backward compatibility on Nov. 12 this year. Titles like “Fallout 3,” “Just Cause 2,” “Gears of War 3” “Dirt 3” and “Assassin’s Creed II” are accountable for those playing hours spent on Xbox One.
