Xbox is celebrating a huge milestone this year; the Microsoft-owned console is 20 years old. To celebrate, Microsoft is adding 76 new games to its backward compatibility program after two years of inactivity. This long list contains some awesome games like Max Payne, Star Wars Jedi Knight II, and Skate 2.
With Skate 2 making a return to Xbox, the whole Skate series is now available on Xbox backward compatibility. Skate 2 will also support Auto HDR on Xbox Series X/S but will not receive an FPS boost which is a bummer. Nonetheless, Fans can enjoy the complete Skate series on Xbox in anticipation of the next game in the series.
The Future Of Skate
Earlier this year, Skate developer Full Circle revealed a teaser trailer for its newest Skate game. The trailer’s title stated, “we’re working on it.” Letting fans know that a new game was coming soon. The trailer showed people shooting motion capture for the game and developers expressing their excitement. Hopefully, we will get more news on the new Skate game soon.
Other Games Coming to Xbox Backward Compatibility
Skate 2 isn’t the only sports game making its way to Xbox backward compatibility. Two games from the MX vs. ATV series were added to the extensive list as well. The first one is MX vs. ATV Untamed that came out back in 2007; the game was released on PS2, Xbox 360, and later Nintendo Wii the following year. Next is MX vs. ATV Alive which was released in 2011 and was only on PS3 and Xbox 360.
