Xbox One Backward Compatibility gets two Dead Rising titles and more

Four more Xbox 360 games are now playable on the Xbox One thanks to Microsoft’s Backwards Compatibility program. The new additions include two standalone DLC pieces of Dead Rising 2 and two games based on Disney animated movies.

These four games mark the first Backward Compatible games to join Microsoft’s program in the month of March. Following last month’s exciting line-up that included titles such as Assassin’s Creed Rogue, GTA IV, and Hitman: Absolution.

In fact, it’s interesting that the Dead Rising 2 base game itself is not backward compatible yet. That’s most likely due to its remastered version, which is already available on the Xbox One. That’s not an issue for the DLCs though, as they are perfectly playable standalone but will contain plenty of spoilers.

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero

Once an Xbox 360 exclusive downloadable piece of content, is now available for players on the Xbox One. The game is a prequel to Dead Rising 2, with a short but fun zombie killing experience.

In Case Zero, players have to deal with a “small” zombie outbreak that has appeared in the town of Still Creek. In its heyday, Case Zero was Xbox Live Arcade’s fastest selling game, selling over 300,000 copies in its first week.

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is available now on the Xbox Store for $5.

Dead Rising 2: Case West

Next up, in the same vein as the previous title, is the once Xbox 360 exclusive DLC – Case West. Unlike before, however, this piece of content continues the story of Dead Rising 2, after its ending.

Case West has the protagonist from the original Dead Rising game – Frank West – alongside Dead Rising 2’s central character – Chuck Greene – with the entire game playable in co-op with each player controlling one of the characters.

The game features plenty of new enemies, weapons, challenges and even the original Dead Rising’s photography aspect. Available for purchase through the Xbox Store for $10.

Meet the Robinsons

This is a tie-in game to Walt Disney Pictures’ animated movie – Meet the Robinsons – from way back in 2007. The game follows the storyline of Wilbur, leading to the character’s entrance in the movie with his time machine.

The game features original voice actors from the movie as well as visiting some of its familiar locations. Meet the Robinsons is currently $20 on the Xbox Store.

Cars 2: The Video Game

Lastly, we have another movie game based on the Disney Pixar animated movie – Cars 2. With the release of Cars 3 just a few months away, this is great timing by the Microsoft Backward Compatibility team.

Cars 2: The Video Game gives its players a wide range of characters from the movie to race with. Just as the movie, players can take part in spy missions, giving access to high-tech gadgets to use against opponents.

Cars 2: The Video Game is also available for $20, purchasable through the Xbox Store.

All Xbox 360 digital owners of these games will already have them available on their Xbox One console. However, physical disk owners can simply insert the disks to their Xbox One to start downloading the titles straight away.
