In 2016 games like Red Dead Redemption, the Bioshock trilogy, the Mass Effect trilogy, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion were added.
While in 2017 the biggest release so far has undoubtedly been Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but this week that massive addition was joined by the following nine games: TimeShift, Assault Heroes 2, Commanders: Attack, Dead Space 2, Dead Space 3, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts, Cabela's Alaskan Adventure, Cabela's Hunting Expeditions and Cabela's Survival SoK.
Obviously, the two stand out additions from the week are Dead Space 2 and 3, which come as a nice surprise for anyone who might have been tempted to jump back into the original Dead Space following the reveal of Call of Duty: WW2.
In 2016 Xbox Head Phil Spencer had also suggested that the team could look at the prospect of bringing original Xbox games into the fold for backwards compatibility.
