Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, Portal, Left 4 Dead coming to Xbox One with backward compatibility

Get your classic Valve gaming on.


The Xbox Backward Compatibility program has grown once more, this time adding several fan-favorite titles to its fold:

Half-Life 2: The Orange Box, Portal: Still Alive, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2, all indicative of Valve's excellent cadre of titles, and a great reason to bust out Left 4 Dead once more to get your zombie-slayage on.

These Xbox 360 titles are available to play now, and if you have them still in your collection you can pop them into your system you can sit back and enjoy. These particular titles join the other 17 enhanced Xbox 360 titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2 and Skate 3, which run at a higher resolution and 9 times the original pixel count, according to the official Xbox announcement.

Now that it's just about Halloween, you know you've been dying to start busting out Left 4 Dead, too, so this is a great move by Microsoft to extend the backwards compatible catalogue and celebrate the season. If you never got that "Cr0wnd!" achievement, now's a good time to try for it again.
