Microsoft has unveiled that seven games are now backwards compatible on the Xbox One with the biggest titles being Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2.

In a tweet sent out by Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, Director of Programming for Xbox Live, confirmed that both Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2 are now backwards compatible. Those who have a physical copy can play it like a normal game while those who have a digital copy will have to download it to the Xbox One hard drive.

Back in May 2015, Microsoft set up a user poll to receive feedback after it announced that some Xbox 360 games will be backwards compatible for the Xbox One. Both Battlefield 3 and Bad Company 2 were among the top 20 most requested titles as of early 2017 while Call of Duty: Black Ops II has been on the #1 spot since 2015.

Other titles that are now backwards compatible are Dragon Age: Origin, Strania, The Splatters, Scrap Metal and Ghostbusters.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was the 10th game in the series and it follows a group of Army misfits who are assigned risky operations. Battlefield 3 was the 11th in the series and a direct squeal to Battlefield 2. Both titles were released on major consoles and were highly praised.
