Microsoft has announced 19 more Xbox classics for the Xbox this week and will be offering the “new” old games in two waves.
Owners of an Xbox One can look forward to various old classics for their console this month. 19 new games from the Xbox-time will come, starting with the first wave, which includes 8 games and will be released on April 17:
Blinx: The Time Sweeper
Conker: Live & Reloaded
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Hunter: The Reckoning
Tank Dragoon Orta
It continues with the much larger wave, which appears on April 26:
Destroy All Humans!
Full Spectrum Warrior
Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory
Star Wars: Battlefront
Star Wars: Battlefront II
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
Star Wars: Republic Commando
There will also be a couple of Xbox 360 games optimized for the One X:
Gears of War 2
Red Dead Redemption
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
Personally, I’m a big fan of such classics, and I’d even like to play Jedi Academy on a modern console. Microsoft states that it is not so easy to get the old games on modern devices, because there are some old contracts for the licenses on it. But nice to see that there are such classics as a new edition, definitely a plus for me.
