Two Xbox 360 games have been added to the Xbox One Backward Compatibility catalog today, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and ScreamRide. For those unfamiliar, the first one is a spin-off from the critically-acclaimed Metal Gear series, and developed by Planitum Games in collaboration with Kojima Productions. The second one is a construction simulator which was released on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015 (it’s also currently playable for free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers).
