Microsoft introduced the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program with the New Xbox One Experience software update. This morning, the company added its most high-profile game to the program to date. Call of Duty: Black Ops is now available through the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program.
As of right now, anyone, absolutely anyone with an Xbox One can insert the disc for their copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops into their console and pick up in the game’s story where they left of. Who are we kidding, you’re more likely ready to jump back into the game’s multiplayer experience, which also works on Xbox One. The fun extends to users that have digital copies of the game for Xbox 360 too.
Microsoft is noting that some users will have to hard restart their console by holding their finger over its power button. From that point on, the digital install that’s required to get the game working should run just fine. You don’t need to have absolutely purchased Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 to get in on the action. You buy the game directly from the Xbox Store and Xbox website for $39.99.
