Two new games are joining to the ever-growing list of Xbox One backward compatible titles today.

First up is Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, a shooter that charges you with defending the fictional city of New Detroit against waves of giant insect aliens and robots. Lead your team, Strike Force Lightning, across the city in order to beat the Queen once and for all.

Next is F1 2014, a racing game that puts you behind the wheel of turbocharged Formula One cars. At launch, this game was supposed to appear on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, but plans for the former were cancelled. Finally, the game can have its proper debut on a modern console.

Both games should become available sometime today, July 11th, if they’re not already live for you. Don’t forget to check out the full list of Xbox One backward compatible titles over at Major Nelson’s site.
