A bunch of Command & Conquer games are backward compatible on Xbox One now


Rush on in

Backward compatibility just rushed in, commanding and conquering one of the most well-known real-time strategy franchises. Every Command & Conquer release on the Xbox 360 is now playable on the Xbox One.

EA has bolstered its Xbox backward compatibility offerings by adding three Command & Conquer titles and an expansion pack. They are: Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium WarsCommand & Conquer 3: Kane's WrathCommand & Conquer: Red Alert 3, and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3: Commander's Challenge. The last one, Commander's Challenge, is a version of Red Alert 3: Uprising that doesn't contain the four mini-campaigns; it was adapted specifically for release on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Of course, backward compatibility is not the most ambitious Command & Conquer project taking place right now. EA and Petroglyph are working on 4K PC remasters of the original Command & Conquer and the first Red Alert. Think of backward compatibility like the appetizers and the remasters as the entree. It's a good time for people who are into playing old Command & Conquer games.
