Its been quite the new year! We’re not even an entire month in and already we are seeing a lot more games being added to the Xbox One X enhanced game list and the Xbox One Backward Compatible List!
There are 3 new arrivals and they are:
Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 is an open-world first-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in October 2008.
It is the second installment of the main Far Cry series, preceded by 2004’s Far Cry and followed by 2012’s Far Cry 3.
Far Cry 2 was met with positive reception upon its release, with critics praising the game’s setting, open-ended gameplay, visuals and AI, while criticism was directed at glitches, design choices, and the writing. By January 2009, the game had sold nearly three million copies.
Sniper Elite V2
I have this one and I love it! If you like sniping, then this is one to check out.
Sniper Elite V2 is a third-person tactical shooter stealth video game developed by Rebellion Developments and published by 505 Games in 2012. It is a sequel/remake of its 2005 predecessor Sniper Elite, which takes place in the same timeframe and location—the Battle of Berlin in April–May 1945—but with an altered narrative.
The game’s story follows an American Office of Strategic Services officer who must capture or eliminate the scientists involved in the German V-2 rocket program while the Red Army invades.
Driver San Francisco
In San Francisco, Jericho is shown being transported in the back of a prison truck to his trial. A hired assassin fires an RPG at the convoy; whilst Jericho’s guards are distracted, he melts through his chains with a hidden vial of acid given to him by a bribed guard. He overpowers his guards and hijacks the truck. Tanner and Jones witness this from Tanner’s car and pursue Jericho as he causes chaos on the streets of the city.
Tanner loses track of Jericho when he turns into an alley and is caught by surprise when Jericho drives up behind him. Jericho uses the truck to ram Tanner’s car into the path of a semi truck, resulting in a devastating crash, putting Tanner into a coma.
All 3 games are now available on Xbox One so if you own the physical disc, just pop it in and voila you can begin playing. On the off chance, you own Far Cry 2 like I do, in digital form, simply go to your games and apps on your console and you can find the games there.
Likewise, if you do not own the games you can find them on the Xbox One store or Amazon.
