Five new games have just joined the Xbox backward compatibility Program.

First up, nearly every entry in the Lost Planet series is now on the list. Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition (the gold edition version of the former title with added multiplayer features and new single-player modes), Lost Planet 2, and Lost Planet 3. These third-person shooters follow settles on planet E.D.N III as they survive the planet’s brutal ice age, territorial aliens, and meddling interstellar megacorporations. The only missing game in the series is spin-off 3DS and PS3 game E.X. Troopers, so these additions will let you play through every main game in the series.

The fifth game joining the program today is Resident Evil – Code: Veronica X. This extended cut of Code: Veronica added 10 minutes of new cinematic sequences and a few graphical enhancements from the original, though since the game originally launched in 1998, it’s still likely to be one of the oldest-looking games on the Xbox One. Since the game was originally intended as a sequel to Resident Evil 2, this could be the perfect game to pick up after playing through the newly-released Resident Evil 2 remake.

These games should be live on the Xbox backward compatibility program right now, so head over and check them out if you missed playing the originals. The full list of backward compatible games can be found on Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb’s site here.
