Microsoft announced that it has added four Valve projects to the backward compatibility list:
• Left 4 Dead
• Left 4 Dead 2,
• Portal: Still Alive
• The Orange Box, which includes five games:
– Team Fortress 2
– Half-Life 2
– Half-Life 2: Episode One,
– Half-Life 2: Episode Two.
Let’s recall two details. First, Portal: Still Alive is the usual first Portal to which bonus levels have been added from The Flash Version MapPack. The assembly was released exclusively on the Xbox Live Arcade digital distribution service.
Improvements for the Xbox One X include an enhanced nine-time resolution picture and enhanced color detailing. No extra money is asked for it: if you have a copy of the game from the backward compatibility library (not important, on a disk or in a “digit”) then you get the version for Xbox One and Xbox One X for free.
The similar “remasterers” for Xbox One X include Portal 2, Red Dead Redemption, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and some other well-known games. In general, the compatibility library with the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox has several hundreds of projects and is constantly replenished. Recently, for example, the Xbox One family has been allowed to launch the entire trilogy of Crysis.
