Six more games have just been added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility List today: the most interesting additions are the space survival horror games Dead Space 2 and 3, which now join the first episode of the critically-acclaimed trilogy. On a little less exciting note, Xbox’s Major Nelson also announced that four different Cabela’s hunting video games are also being added today.

As usual, we’ve added official descriptions, video trailers, pricing details and download links for all games below:
