If you’ve been itching for EA to bring back the dormant Command & Conquer series, and the recent competitive mobile game doesn’t quite scratch that itch, then Microsoft is stepping in to alleviate that problem. Sort of. In addition to the recent announcement that EA will be remastering several classic PC Command & Conquer titles, starting today, you can play four of Command & Conquer’s Xbox 360 games as part of Xbox One’s backward compatibility program.
The four games are:
- Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars
- Command & Conquer 3 Kane’s Wrath
- Command & Conquer Red Alert 3
- Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Commander’s Challenge
Xbox’s Larry Hryb announced the news on Twitter, and it’s at least a good omen for anyone pining for the glory days of the popular franchise. For those who missed it, though, you can check out Command & Conquers Rivals when it got announced at E3 2018 here.

Microsoft has been releasing games onto its backward compatibility list at a steady clip since they launched the program in 2015, and it’s an initiative that has only served to bolster their bullet points after a rocky system launch. With an ever-growing list of games to play from previous generations and the wide array of games to choose from in their new Game Pass program, Xbox is making quite a strong argument for their platform.
