Call of Duty 2 now available on Xbox One Backward Compatibility


If you’re a fan of the classic Call of Duty games, then you might want to fire up your Xbox One and head over to the Xbox Store (or search through your pile of game discs!) Major Nelson has just taken to his blog to announce that Call of Duty 2 is now available on the Xbox One via Backward Compatibility.

It’s not the first Call of Duty game in the program, as Call of Duty: Black Ops was added in May. There is clearly demand for other games in the series, too, as five of the top six most-requested games for backwards compatibility support on the Xbox Feedback site are Call of Duty titles.

The World War II shooter became one of the most popular titles for the Xbox 360, with sales of 250,000 copies in its first week on the console, and a total of 2 million copies by January 2008. Developer Infinity Ward created an extensive single player campaign for Call of Duty 2, spanning four sections and letting the player control soldiers in the American, British and Soviet armies. It also has online multiplayer support for several gameplay modes, and Infinity Ward released a number of DLC map packs for the game as well.

If you already own Call of Duty 2, it should show up automatically in your library. Newcomers can buy it for $20. In terms of size, it will take up 5.87 GB on your hard drive.
