Yet another title is playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility, and this time it’s the Xbox 360 version of the 1982 arcade title, Joust.
Major Nelson announced the title would be available via Twitter. Joust will be free to those who owned it on 360, but those who didn’t will still be able to purchase it through the Xbox Store for just $4.99.
“Joust arrived at the height of the golden age of arcade games, and swept players off their feet. It presented a novel game play in a novel setting that captured the imagination. The player, mounted on an ostrich sized bird and carrying a lance, must ‘joust’ against enemy players in a battle for air supremacy,” a description of the game reads.
Microsoft has been adding a lot of titles to the backward compatibility program as of late, including Call of Duty 2, Bomberman Live: Battlefest, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, and more. Many of the most requested titles for the service are yet to be added, but Microsoft has revealed that the program has been a huge success. The company’s head of marketing, Aaron Greenberg, recently stated that players have spent more than 145 million hours playing the 230+ titles available across the library.
