Director’s cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution leads the way.
Despite earlier reports that it may not be possible, Microsoft has found a way to make Xbox One backwards compatibility function with multi-disk Xbox 360 titles.
The news came from Major Nelson himself, via a post on r/xboxone. In fact, the first multi-disk game was added earlier this week, Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut.
In a statement to IGN, a Microsoft spokesperson had this to say:
“Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut” was the first multi-disc Backward Compatible title added to the program. We know fans were asking for this feature and our engineers worked hard developing a solution to enable it so we could further expand the titles included in Xbox One Backward Compatibility. We’re continuing to listen to our fans on Xbox Feedback and work with our publishing partners to grow out library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles and will work to include more multi-disc games.“
This opens the door for plenty of great Xbox 360 titles. Be sure to check out our full Xbox One backwards compatibility list regularly to see what gets added, and when.
