Platinum Games’ acclaimed shooter Vanquish has officially joined the ranks of Microsoft’s ever-expanding Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup, the company has announced.

The brainchild of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, Vanquish was released back in 2010 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and is now playable on Microsoft’s latest console either from a disc or digital download.

Joining Vanquish is puzzle-platform game Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, which adds an isometric and cooperative twist on the Tomb Raider heroine’s traditional adventures. Last but not least is Disney/Pixar romp Brave, which features actress Kelly Macdonald reprising her role from the animated film. 

As always, you can purchase any of these games to play on Xbox One if you don’t already own them by hitting up the Xbox Store. However, it’s worth noting that none of them are available in this week’s game deals, so you’ll be paying full price for your troubles. 

In case you missed it, here’s last week’s lineup of Xbox One backwards compatibility games.
