Halo developer 343 Industries announced today that Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary are now available to play on Xbox One through backward compatibility.
This means all Halo titles released for the Xbox 360 are now backward compatible with Xbox One. Spin-off titles Halo: Reach and Halo Wars have been Xbox One backward compatible in December 2015 and March 2016, respectively.
Xbox One backward compatibility allows Xbox 360 games, and soon original Xbox games, to be played on the system with the physical disc or a digital copy. 343 Industries noted that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is currently not available to purchase digitally, but will be “soon.” The developer also said the Halo 3: Mythic disc, a separate disc that allowed Halo 3: ODST owners to play multiplayer, will work via disc to play Halo 3 multiplayer.
The move was previously announced by the developer and publisher Microsoft last July, and the companies made all Xbox 360 Halo add-ons free to download forever to mark the announcement. All four titles have been available on the Xbox One as part of 2014’s Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
