Xbox One Backwards Compatibility: Call of Duty 3 Added to the List?
The Xbox 360 was a great platform for first-person shooting games, which the Call of Duty franchise make a good special seat in. But for an upgraded console, whose backwards compatibility, was not an original feature, any of the games that make up the Call of Duty series were not playable to the Xbox One until Microsoft decided to include Call of Duty 3 on the list.
Yes, according to Attack of the Fanboy, it is now confirmed. Call of Duty 3, the first Treyarch-developed game for the franchise, will now be made playable for those who own either the physical or digital copy of the game on the Xbox 360 but have now moved on to Xbox One. The popular Xbox 360 game is now playable on the latest-gen console through the backwards-compatibility program.
Originally lacking the backwards compatibility feature at launch, many were unaware that they would be able to play their pre-owned Xbox 360 games until only last year when the rumor about the feature was announced and eventually implemented. Since then, the number of games that are playable with the Xbox One has already exploded to as much as 200 game titles more and still growing.
Call of Duty fans may remember Call of Duty 3 to be the last title for the series to be set on a World War II environment. It gave way for a sequel that was put for the modern era with the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and its eventual sequels.
Just last month, Call of Duty 2 was also added on the Xbox One Compatibility List, which gives nostalgia for its old-time gamers. However, according to Eurogamer, Call of Duty 4 may not follow the steps made for its predecessors, as the game will have its own HD remake that will be made exclusively for will be owners of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy, Legacy Pro, and Digital Deluxe Editions.
