As promised, Microsoft has recently unveiled the 16 new Xbox 360 titles that can be played using the Xbox One through the backwards compatibility service.

With the latest roster update, the total of number of last-gen games that are now available for the company's next-gen console is now at 120.

Through the Major Nelson site, Microsoft revealed that the list of new games for Xbox One's Backwards Compatibility feature includes "Braid," "Doritos Crash Course," "Fable III," "Hydro Thunder," "Iron Brigade," "Kane & Lynch 2," "Motocross Madness," "Ms. Pac-Man," "Peggle," "Portal: Still Alive," "Spelunky," "Splosion Man," "Ticket to Ride" and "Zuma's Revenge."

But aside from these, probably the most interesting titles unveiled by Microsoft are "Deus Ex: Human Revolution" and "Halo: Reach."

The former first came out in 2011 and is the third installment from the "Deus Ex" series. As a prequel to the entire franchise, "Deus Ex: Human Revolution" sets the story for the succeeding "Deus Ex" games.

The other title coming to Xbox One is 2010's "Halo: Reach." The story of the game takes place during the events of the "Halo: The Fall of Reach" novel. It focuses on the members of the UNSC special operations unit Noble Team as they fight a Covenant Invasion on the human planet known as Reach.

According to Gamespot, Microsoft launched the backwards compatibility service earlier in November as part of a system update. At that time, the feature, which allowed Xbox One gamers to enjoy selected Xbox 360 games on their consoles, came with a total of 104 games.

Microsoft then noted that it will regularly support its latest service by unveiling new games every couple of months. Now, through the latest roster update, gamers can choose from 120 titles under the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility service. The updated list of these titles can be viewed here.

Gamers can expect to see more games added to the list next year. As noted by Microsoft, gamers can enjoy these games on the Xbox One system as long as they already have the downloaded version of physical copy of the Xbox 360 title. This means they will not have to pay for anything to enjoy these games.

But aside from backwards compatibility, the new service also comes with cross-play support. As explained by the game, players will be able to enjoy supporter multiplayer titles with their friends whether they're using and Xbox 360 or an Xbox One.
