Two all-time great titles in the Metal Gear Solid franchise will be available for Xbox One today courtesy of its backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 titles. These are Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD which were originally part of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. The announcement was made by Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb on Twitter.
Though the gameplay and story are the same as their non-HD versions, these versions include 720p resolution support and 60 FPS frame rates. You can also look forward to Metal Gear Solid 2’s Snake Tales and Casting Theater along with Metal Gear Solid 3’s third person camera option among features.
Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker HD Edition was made backwards compatible for the Xbox One earlier this year so that makes almost every game from the original Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. When will Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake arrive? Time will tell.
In the meantime, you can head here to view the full list of Xbox One backwards compatible titles here.
