Today is Tuesday, traditionally the day on which Microsoft adds new games to the Xbox One Backward Compatible catalog. That said, there are three Xbox 360 titles which are coming to Xbox One via Backward Compatibility today: VANQUISH, Lara Croft and Guardian of Light, and Brave. As always, we’ve included the details for you below the Tweet.

Experience the first ever co-op action-adventure game featuring Lara Croft. Team up with a friend or go at it alone as you traverse and solve deadly traps, fight hordes of undead enemies, and collect over 60 artifacts and relics. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light offers fast-paced action and breathtaking visuals shown through an isometric view.

And, if you own physical copies, all you need to do is insert the disk into the Xbox One and let the system work that Backward Compatible magic.
