Xbox One just added three new games to its backward compatibility program, two of which will put your stealth skills to the test.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition have just gone backward compatible on Xbox One, as well as point-and-click adventure game Axel & Pixel.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier was the precursor to Ghost Recon Wildlands and introduced some of the mechanics (like drone spotting and synchronized take-downs) that Wildlands would popularize while maintaining the series’ historically linear third-person gameplay.
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker takes place between Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (and, obviously, Ground Zeroes) and follows Big Boss who must take on a mysterious new military group that’s shown up in Costa Rica, introducing characters that would become pivotal to The Phantom Pain‘s plot, like Paz Ortega and Kazuhira Miller. The HD Edition was originally included with the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which also included Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD Edition and Metal Gear Solid 3 HD Edition. Later, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD Editions and Peace Walker HD Edition were made available as two separate digital downloads, but it looks like we’re only getting Peace Walker as a backward compatible title for now.
Axel & Pixel, while not as exciting as the other two additions, is still a fun point-and-click adventure game known mostly for its art style. The game follows Axel and his dog Pixel as they explore the worlds of an artist’s paintings, looking to find their way home.
