Play Halo Wars, Soul Calibur 2 HD, and King of Fighters '98 on Xbox One

Three more games were added to Xbox One's backwards compatibility list today, and fighting game fans in particular should be pleased with Microsoft's latest offering. Soul Calibur 2 HD Online and King of Fighters '98 will keep the fists flying while Halo Wars will let you experience the Halo universe from a whole new perspective - get it? Because it's a top-down RTS game! I kill me.

With the addition of Halo Wars, this means that nearly every Halo game can be played on one console. The only title missing is Halo: Spartan Strike, a spin-off designed for mobile devices and PC. Everything else is either part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection (opens in new tab), Halo 5 (opens in new tab), or backwards compatible.

And if you don't already own any of the above, don't forget that you can now buy backwards compatible Xbox 360 games (opens in new tab) directly from Xbox One. We truly are living in the future.
