Microsoft’s Game Pass Ultimate subscription is becoming more appealing with every passing day! Not only does the $14.99 subscription give you unlimited access to a library of over 100 games on both PC and Xbox, EA Play membership, day-one access to all of Microsoft’s first-party titles, and the ability to stream games to your phone, but starting this week, the cloud streaming service will also let you play games made for the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox.

In a new blog post this week, the Redmond giant announced the launch of backward compatibility for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Backward compatibility has been one of the most requested and most beloved features on Microsoft’s consoles, so it makes a lot of sense for the company to bring the same magic to the cloud.

The initial slate of Xbox and Xbox 360 titles available for Game Pass Ultimate members includes 16 of the most iconic titles of the past decade. Banjo-Kazooie, Fable II, Fallout: New Vegas, Perfect Dark, Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and Kameo are all available to play on your phone using a controller, while games like Jetpac Refuelled, Viva Pinata, and Viva Pinata TIP come with touch controls built-in, so all you need for a trip down memory lane is a phone and a good internet connection.

The full list of games can be found below:

  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • Double Dragon Neon
  • Fable II
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Gears of War 2
  • Gears of War 3
  • Gears of War: Judgment
  • Jetpac Refuelled (touch controls enabled)
  • Kameo
  • Perfect Dark
  • Perfect Dark Zero
  • The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Viva Piñata (touch controls enabled)
  • Viva Piñata: TIP (touch controls enabled)

If you’d like to try your hand at one of these classics — and all the other benefits an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription brings — you can sign up for the subscription here. The first month also only costs $1, making it an incredible deal.
