Several titles will also feature FPS Boost technology, which improves image quality on Xbox Series consoles.
Xbox would like to thank the thousands of gamers who have supported the company over the past 20 years, and they’re doing it in the best possible way: they’re about to convert over 70 classic Xbox and Xbox 360 games to Xbox Series and Xbox One compatibility!
The Xbox staff explained all this at the Xbox Anniversary Celebration, where they recalled the hours of gaming and adventures they’ve had on the company’s consoles over the years.
We’re talking about games like the entire Max Payne saga or F.E.A.R., as well as Skate 2 and more than 20 original Xbox games like Dead or Alive Ultimate, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II or Star Wars: Starfighter, which is available to play from today if you own them in physical or digital form. The idea is not just about retro-compatibility; however: all games will benefit from improved visual quality via Auto HDR on platforms that support it. Some (11) games will also benefit from FPS Boost technology, planned to be added to other titles.

So Xbox is successfully riding the 20th-anniversary wave of nostalgia, not only with this announcement but also with all sorts of videos and initiatives that evoke dozens of adventures and memories. But the company is still looking to the future, as evidenced by the upcoming Halo series, which has already shown its first teaser, and the exclusivity of The Elder Scrolls 6, which has put an end to a long-running debate.
Celebrate 20 years of Xbox with the titles that defined it.
