As promised, the Xbox One backward compatibility program has added a new collection of original Xbox games to its growing library. 10 titles, including several from the Star Wars universe, are now available for Xbox, as well as an extra game for players in Europe and another that’s now open to all regions.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb revealed the new additions to the program on Twitter, which you can see below. Players can now jump back into a few classics from THQ Nordic, including Destroy All Humans!, Full Spectrum Warrior, and MX Unleashed. Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory is also available, but only in Europe for now.

LucasArts is the main focus of this latest batch, though. Six games from the Star Wars universe—Battlefront, Battlefront II, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Jedi Starfighter, Republic Commando, and Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords—have been added, as well as a non-Star Wars game from the publisher, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction. Nelson also revealed that Bandai Namco’s original Xbox game Breakdown, which was previously a region-locked entry in the Xbox One program, is now available around the world.

Playing these games can be done in one of two ways. For players that own the physical disc of the games, they can simply place it in their Xbox One, Xbox One S, or Xbox One X and get started. However, if you don’t own the game, the Xbox Store now sells them digitally.

April was a big month for the backward compatibility program, as this new collection of games was the second set to arrive this month. On April 17th, eight other original Xbox games were also added.
