Two new games have just joined the Xbox backward compatibility program.

As Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb revealed on Twitter this morning, both Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter are now available on the Xbox One.

Assassin’s Creed Liberation first released on the PlayStation Vita in 2012, with the upgraded HD version appearing on home consoles in 2014. Set in New Orleans at the end of the French and Indian War, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD stars the series’ first female protagonist, Aveline de Grandpré. The game shares many qualities with Assassin’s Creed III, including the same engines, so long-time Assassin’s Creed fans who may have missed this entry will have a good idea of what to expect gameplay-wise.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter first released in 2006. The tactical shooter requires players to use cover and coordination to complete missions, rather than brute-forcing their way through, though players can still take a few shots before going down.

As always, if you owned the Xbox 360 version of either game, you should be able to dive in and start playing right away. If you missed out on the games the first time around, they should now appear in the Xbox Store.
