Splinter Cell games backwards compatible on Xbox One

Two Splinter Cell games are now backwards compatible on Xbox One.

The Xbox 360’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Splinter Cell: Double Agent are both backwards compatible from today, Ubisoft has advised.

Double Agent was released in 2006 on PC, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, GameCube and Wii, while Blacklist hit PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U in 2013.

If you own a digital copy of a backwards compatible game, you’ll find it available for download inside the Xbox One’s My Games & Apps section. If you’ve a physical copy of a backwards compatible game, simply insert the disc into your Xbox One to begin the download process.

If you’re a Splinter Cell fan, it’s a good time to grab Splinter Cell: Conviction for free as part of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program — the game is free for the rest of the day ahead of the changeover to August 2018 Games with Gold titles.

Moreover, Ubisoft added Splinter Cell content into Ghost Recon: Wildlands back in April 2018.
