Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 are now backwards-compatible on Xbox One

Matt Sayer 22 September 2017 NEWS


The Master Chief makes his return to Microsoft's latest console.

A slate of long-awaited Xbox 360 games are joining the backwards compatible line-up on Xbox One today, with Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4 and the disc version of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition now playable on Microsoft's latest console.

After the debacle that was Halo: The Master Chief Collection, it's good to see Microsoft bringing the seminal FPS series to Xbox One, even if it means losing sales on players who already own the Xbox 360 versions of the games. Better yet, it gives a slew of new Xbox One owners a chance to play the greatest Halo game ever made: Halo 3: ODST. Seriously, if you skipped ODST due to its lack of Master Chief, you owe it to yourself to check it out. The way it tells a more intimate story within the Halo universe is spectacular, plus it's got Nathan Fillion in it to boot.

In other Xbox One news, you can pre-order the Xbox One X again, though you'll want to prepare for Xbox One X game install sizes to be 30% bigger.
