Earlier this summer, Microsoft made all Xbox 360-era Halo DLC free on the Xbox Store, so the release of these backwards-compatible games isn't a big surprise.

The official Halo Twitter account confirmed the news that Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4 and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary are all now playable on Xbox One.


This latest round of Halo games join previously released backward compatible titles Halo Wars, Halo: Reach, and Halo: Spartan Assault. Mythic disc that was bundled alongside ODST can also be used to get online with the Halo 3 multiplayer.

Today, Halo fans will be able to dive into Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST Campaign Edition, Halo 4, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary via backward compatibility.


Backwards Compatibility news on the Halo series isn't exactly what Halo fans are hoping for at this point from Microsoft. If you have a digital copy of these games, you will find the game icon within the "Ready to Install" section of the My Games and App.

All of these titles are now available on the Xbox One through The Master Chief Collection, but for those that didn't pick-up that collection of Halo titles in 2014 can finally play their old games on the system.


With today's additions, there are no w 425 playable Xbox 360 games on Xbox One.
