Great news for Xbox One owners today, as Bethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion is now backwards compatible. Simply pop in your disc, or install the digital version if you bought it that way, and return to the rather outdated, but still wonderful open world.
Not only that, but Medal of Honor Airborne, Trine 2 and Astropop also join the backwards compatible list of titles, as we edge closer to nearly 300 available Xbox 360 titles. As for Oblivion though, it released in March of 2006, just months after the Xbox 360 launched, and became one of the biggest titles in the series history. It also paved the way for in-game DLC thanks to the Horse Armor. Thanks, Bethesda…

It could probably do with the remastered treatment in all honesty, but it’s highly unlikely at this point in time. Maybe in the next generation of consoles?
Medal of Honor Airborne released in 2007, with a Metacritic score of 78%. The game takes place in the European theater of World War II, and is the first in the series to focus only on paratrooper activities.
Can you see yourself returning to any of these new additional titles? Curious to see how Oblivion looks and feels, 10 years on?
