In case last year’s Star Wars Battlefront II and the great deal of loot box/micro-transaction rubbish related to it upset you, then you would be delighted to realize that the original Battle Front II is on its way back.
The iconic 2005 game is now coming back in Xbox version, and you will be able to play it on Xbox One consoles. The new development is a part of Microsoft’s next planned series aiming at backward compatibility.
Recently an Inside Xbox live stream was held, and in this video (7 minutes mark), a lot of revelations related to the older classic games being made compatible with modern consoles.
The mega game brand is going to unveil Blinx the Time Sweeper, Breakdown, Conker: Live & Reloaded, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Hunter: The Reckoning, Jade Empire, Panzer Dragoon Ortaand SSX 3 on April 17.
Just in case, you don’t feel that is compelling enough, then on April 26 will be the day when Microsoft releases Destroy All Humans!, Full Spectrum Warrior, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction, MX Unleashed, Panzer Elite Action: Fields of Glory (in Europe, at least), Star Wars Battlefront I and II, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Jedi Starfighter, Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and Republic Commando.
In the above-mentioned live stream, video comparisons were showcased, explaining how the game used to be on the original hardware in comparison to its upgraded appearance, and we must admit that the outcome is mind-blowing. The resolution has been upgraded to HD quality, and Jade Empire looked way more colorful. If you own an Xbox One, then it will look even better when played on the console.
The most impressive part is that in case you still have the old CDs then all you need to do is to slide them into your console, and the upgrades will be yours for free.
We are confident that these upgraded games will keep you entertained until Solo: A Star Wars Storylands in theaters on May 25.
