As part of Microsoft’s plan to bring original Xbox games to modern players, eight more classic titles are now available through the Xbox One backward compatibility program.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb announced the arrival the new selection of oldies on Twitter. As seen in the tweets below, the new offerings include Blinx: The Time Sweeper, Breakdown, Conker: Live and Reloaded, Hunter: The Reckoning, Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Orta, SSX 3, and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

There are a few ways to play these blasts from the past. For players that still own a physical copy of any of the games, they can now insert the discs into their Xbox One, Xbox One S, or Xbox One X and play. If you’re new to the titles, the Xbox Store sells them digitally and can be saved to your console.

Players wanting to jump back into the original generation of Xbox now have a healthy handful of genres to enjoy. These additions mark the second batch of original Xbox games added to the backward compatibility program. In October 2017, Microsoft released the first set, which included 13 games.

While the library of backward compatible games from Microsoft’s first console is nowhere near as expansive as the Xbox 360 offerings in the program, 11 more OG Xbox titles are headed to the roster on April 26th. Included in the next set are a few titles that were recently leaked by Reddit users.
