Microsoft has announced that 76 new games are now available to play in a final update to the Xbox Backward Compatibility program.

We thought Microsoft was done with its impressive Backward Compatibility programme, but not so.

On today’s Xbox Anniversary Livestream, it was announced that 76 new original Xbox and Xbox 360 titles are now available to play via back compat on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Every game supports auto HDR on Xbox Series X|S, and all OG Xbox games receive a resolution bump. 37 titles – including Gears of War, Nier, and Fable III – will also receive improved frame rates via the FPS Boost feature.

New back compat titles include the complete Max Payne series, the F.E.A.R. franchise, and a smattering of classic Star Wars games.

Here’s the complete list of new additions.
