Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 released in 2011, and was the first game to introduce Survival mode to the series. This mode lets one or two players fight endless waves of enemies, with the waves becoming more and more difficult to beat the longer the fight goes on. Unlike Zombies mode, the enemies appear in tactical locations around the player, rather than at fixed spawn points.
There’s a lengthy list of Call of Duty titles already available as part of the Backward Compatibility Program. Modern Warfare 3 joins Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, Modern Warfare, Advanced Warfare, World at War, Ghosts, Black Ops, and Black Ops II in the program. As always, players who owned the older Xbox 360 version of the games should be able to jump right in and start playing.
The full list of Backward Compatible games can be found on Major Nelson’s site.
