Xbox One Games with Gold just got better with backwards compatibility

Xbox One Games with Gold just got a lot better with Xbox 360 backwards compatibility.

Every month Xbox Live Gold members get a pair of free games for the Xbox One and another two for the Xbox 360.

But from this month, it’s all about to change thanks to Xbox One backwards compatibility.

“Exciting
news for Xbox Live Gold members, starting in November all future Games
with Gold titles for Xbox 360 will be playable on Xbox One, giving Xbox
One owners double the free games to play each month,” explained the latest Xbox Live blog post.

“When
Xbox One Backward Compatibility launches on November 12, play
multiplayer with your friends no matter which console they’re on and
enjoy Xbox 360 games with the advanced features of your Xbox One,
including Game DVR, Screenshots, and in-home streaming to Windows 10.”

Xbox One owners just need to download their free Xbox 360 Games with Gold from the Xbox website, and then the games will show up in the Ready to Install section of your My Games and Apps.
