Hitman: Blood Money and Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars are the newest additions to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list. Microsoft have also noted these games are Xbox One enhanced now, but it's optional.

Hitman: Blood Money is the fourth instalment in the Hitman franchise that was released back in 2006. Up until now it could be played on Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2 , PS3 and PC. Now it can be played on Xbox One, along with Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars.

Blood Money was both critically acclaimed and well received by fans. It's the standard package - carrying out assassinations while trying to be as stealthy as possible while doing so. This title also introduced the notoriety system that made it stand out from other entries in the Hitman series.

As we mentioned already, Agent 47's adventures are not the only ones that were added to Xbox One compatibility list. While not received as well as Hitman Blood Money, Lego Star Wars 3: The Clone Wars was a decent release as well, back in 2011. 

Hitman has always been a single player series, but Lego games aren't. The best part is they mostly feature couch co-op. Such is the case with The Clone Wars and both players can switch between different characters in order to progress through the game - either by fighting through the enemies or by solving puzzles laid before them.

Both games will be Xbox One enhanced but if you want to complete that retro feeling, you can switch to the old graphics as well.

Just like with previous backwards compatibility cases, if you have a hard copy of either game, they will run seamlessly on Xbox One. If you want to boot up the classics but don't have the discs, they can be found on Xbox Marketplace and will set you back £11,99 each.
