Xbox One gets its final backwards compatibility update, adding Splinter Cell 1-3, and Too Human has been made free

The latest Xbox One backwards compatibility update, spanning original Xbox and 360 titles and a few Xbox One X enhancements, is the last one that the Xbox One will receive.

In light of the news that Xbox Scarlett will have full backwards compatibility with four generations of Xbox titles, stretching back to the original Xbox console, Microsoft is winding down its support for backwards compatibility on the Xbox One to focus its energy on the next generation of console.

Xbox has made the announcement alongside a list of the final games being added.

The final update is fairly significant, adding several Xbox and 360 titles to the One's list of backwards compatible titles, which, all told, now comes to over 600 titles.

The original Xbox titles added today are:

  • Armed and Dangerous
  • Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb
  • Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
  • Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Double Agent
  • Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict

The Splinter Cell titles are obviously the standout here, even if it doesn't make up for the series' continued absence on new consoles.

Several pieces of DLC for original Xbox games are also being made available for free, including all mission and map packs for the Splinter Cell games.

Meanwhile, the following Xbox 360 games are being made backwards compatible:

  • Asura’s Wrath
  • Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
  • Enchanted Arms
  • Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
  • Far Cry Classic
  • Far Cry Instincts Predator
  • Infinite Undiscovery
  • Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie
  • Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands
  • Skate
  • Star Ocean: The Last Hope
  • Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo
  • Syndicate
  • Too Human
  • Unreal Tournament 3

On top of this, several Rare games are getting Xbox One X enhancements:

  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Kazooie Nuts & Bolts
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • Kameo Elements of Power
  • Perfect Dark
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • Viva Piñata
  • Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise

Too Human will be made available free to everyone as well - it's not the most well-loved game, but it's certainly interesting.
