As has become a custom, Major Nelson has tweeted out the next Xbox One Backward Compatible titles to be available. It looks like RAGE, Killer is Dead, and Shred Nebula will be joining the ever growing list of classic Xbox 360 games that can be played with the newer generation console. Here is a look at each one.
Fearing a planet-wide extinction from a massive asteroid headed towards Earth, world leaders are faced with the inexorable task of ensuring human survival. Left with few alternatives, life-sustaining pods filled with select people are buried deep beneath the earth’s surface. You are one of the chosen members of these modern day arks and abruptly enter the RAGE universe after surfacing alone. Leaving you to your own devices to stay alive in a world filled with those who prefer you dead, RAGE combines powerful storytelling with heart-pounding action. (via Steam)
The latest from the demented mind of celebrated game creator, SUDA51, serving as a spiritual successor to previous cult favorites No More Heroes and Killer 7. Stylish cel-shaded visuals set the mood in this gritty, bloody, ultra-violent world where biomechanical augmentations increase the power of criminals and “executioners” alike. Mondo Zappa, a newly recruited executioner, hunts criminals wielding a Japanese sword in his right hand, and powerful biomechanical engineering in his left.
Local Multiplayer 2, Xbox LIVE Multiplayer 2-8, HD (High Definition). Ready for more? Upgrade to the full version of Shred Nebula and unlock all three game modes, 40 total levels, achievements, leaderboards, and one immersive storyline to carry it all along. Like multiplayer? Team up with friends in co-op mode, or pilot one of eight unique ships – each with its own weapons, specials, and strengths – for the deep-space dogfight of your life! It’s just another day on the edge of the Shred. This game requires the Xbox 360 hard drive or the 512MB Memory Unit for storage.
