Battlefield: Bad Company Is Xbox One’s Backwards Compatibility’s Newest Recruit

Kick it old school.

The Xbox One backwards compatibility train keeps on a-rollin’, and the latest game to pull into the station is an excellent entry in the Battlefield series. It’s also one of the quirkiest. Maybe you even missed it when it first came out. It’s Battlefield: Bad Company. If you’ve still got it chilling around the house in its decrepit old Xbox 360 case, you might want to take some time and pop it into your system.

Bad Company was the first game to be released using DICE’s Frostbite engine, and it also offered up an awesome single-player campaign with a story that mirrored classic war movies and their campy characters. Back in 2008 it offered a pleasing alternative to the main Battlefield series.

It still holds up now, so you can pop it right into your Xbox One tray if you have it or go pick up a physical copy for dirt cheap at somewhere like GameStop. If you don’t want to wait, you can nab the game online via the Xbox Store for $15. That’s a little pricey, but that’s obviously what you have to pay for digital convenience. And it’s convenient that this spinoff made its way to Xbox One!
