Original Story

The original Call of Duty: Black Ops will soon be available on Xbox One through backwards compatibility.

No official announcements were made. Instead, Eurogamer spotted a listing of the game via the Xbox 360 dashboard that reads, "COD: Black Ops - Now Plays on Xbox One."

This is shown alongside the game's cover art.


This likely appeared ahead of schedule, as is usually the case, but it means fans will soon be able to play Treyarch's Xbox 360 shooter on Xbox One.
