The library continues to grow.

The Xbox One backwards compatibility train shows no signs of slowing down, as Microsoft has announced that another three Xbox 360 games have joined the ever-expanding lineup.

The news comes via a tweet from Major Nelson’s (Larry Hyrb) Twitter account. The new games added are Halo Wars, SoulCalibur II and The King of Fighters ’98. Halo Wars is a real-time strategy game that has players building up their own base, forming an army and defeating their opponents on large maps. All of the units, buildings and maps are, of course, based on the Halo universe. With Halo Wars 2 due to release sometime this year, now would be a good time to brush up on your skills.

With the Xbox One March update, the system also got its very own backwards compatibility store. This makes it much easier for users to search, purchase and download any backwards compatible games.

These latest additions to the backwards compatibility lineup now mean that Microsoft has added new titles three times over a two week period. Assassin’s Creed and Dark Void were first to be announced, with Dark Souls and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 following shortly after. With these titles now available, the Xbox One now has over 140 backwards-compatible games. A pretty impressive number considering the announcement was made less than one year ago.
