    There's been little news on the Xbox One backwards compatibility front as of late, but with E3 in the rear-view mirror, it's time for something new. Microsoft has announced a new addition to the BC lineup, and it's a pretty big one in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

    Major Nelson confirmed the news on Twitter, saying the Xbox 360 shooter is now playable on Xbox One. It joins a growing list of classic Call of Duty games that are playable on the console, although curiously it doesn't complete the Modern Warfare trilogy. 2009's Modern Warfare 2 has not yet been added to the list, so if you're looking for a chronological playthrough, you'll have to continue to wait for that to happen.

    If you already own Modern Warfare 3, you can simply pop in the disc or head to the Ready to the Download section of the My Games and Apps area to download it. Alternatively, you can purchase a copyright from the Xbox Store. As it happens, Modern Warfare 3 is a part of this week's Deals With Gold lineup. It's 50% off for Xbox Live Gold members until June 25, letting you get it for $15 / £12. Meanwhile, its DLC packs are all 33% off.

    Backwards compatibility is a notable feature for Xbox One, but with a seemingly endless array of new games to tout during its press conference, Microsoft didn't focus on it at E3. It features prominently last year, as the company announced plans to introduce support for a select number of original Xbox games. Following the initial debut of that last year, another batch was released this spring. You can check out everything that's playable on Xbox One in our full list of backwards compatibility games.

    This is great, but as well all know the game is filled with modding just like BO2. Although BO2 is a lot more toxic with it. It's nice that they are allowing us to play this on our Xbones, but why go out of order? They put COD4 up then completely skip MW2 and go to MW3. I wonder if we could possibly see a remaster simply because of this. :whistle: The only other thing I can see is that if they put MW2 on the backwards compat list the newer CODs would be ditched so I don't know.

    It's good that this has been brought back into life on the XB1, however they need to ensure that they bring MW2 next. The waiting is getting boring now!!
