Two more Xbox 360 games have joined the roster on the Xbox One Backward Compatibility feature. In addition to working on the older consoles and new, the games are now updated in the Xbox Store for purchase through your Xbox One. Saves, achievements, and other progress can be transferred over via the cloud with relative ease so you can pick up and play where you left off.

Forza fans are excited to be racing off with the game once more. The racing game Forza Horizon was originally released on Xbox 360 in February 2013.
Forza Horizon’s description reads:
Where cars belong! Celebrate speed, music, and style at the Horizon Festival. From the makers of the highest-rated racing franchise of this generation, Forza Horizon combines legendary Forza authenticity with the freedom of the open road.
Disney’s Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse is also now Backward Compatible. It was originally released as a Sega Genesis game in 1990 and then re-mastered for the Xbox 360 in 2013.
The title’s description reads:
With all-new HD graphics and gameplay, Castle of Illusion brings Mickey and his world to life in this magical Disney adventure! When the evil witch Mizrabel kidnaps Minnie, it’s up to Mickey to brave the dangers of the Castle of Illusion to rescue Minnie. Gather your courage and traverse enchanted forests, take on hordes of rebellious toys and navigate mazes of living books. Play as Mickey and save Minnie from Mizrabel’s evil clutches!
As of late, fans of Disney have been clamouring to buy the Castle of Illusion from a variety of sources. The game was confirmed to Game Informer by Sega to be officially delisting as of September 2, 2016. Buyers of the original Xbox 360 fans might find themselves nostalgic for the game and thankful for the addition to the Backward Compatibility list.
As he always does, Larry Hryb from the Xbox Team has updated the Backward Compatible list on his site to reflect the new additions. Check out the rest of the Xbox 360 games that you can play on your Xbox One by visiting his Xbox One Backwards Compatibility List.Further reading: Backward Compatibility, Gaming, Microsoft, Video Games, Xbox 360, Xbox One
