Microsoft has had a bit of a wave of games getting added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility program over the last few days and the latest one is Call of Duty 3. The timing of this game becoming available on Xbox One is likely not exactly a coincidence, considering Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is just a few months away.
Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb, otherwise known as Major Nelson announced Call of Duty 3 was available starting today on his official Twitter account. As is the case with other new additions to the program, you can purchase Call of Duty 3 right now if you don’t already own a hard copy version from previous generations of consoles.
For those who haven’t played the game yet, Call of Duty 3 is set in World War II and features the US, Polish, Canadian, British and French forces as they pushed into the village of Chambois, France during a maneuver called the Falaise Pocket. Unlike other games in the series, this one had just the one mission in the campaign, but users played that mission through the eyes of the five different armies launching that attack.
Call of Duty 3 is available to play now on the Xbox One and can be purchased for $19.99.
