Call of Duty: Black Ops II Now Available via Xbox One Backward Compatibility

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now playable on Xbox One via Backward Compatibility. This blockbuster joins more than 350 Xbox 360 classics available on Xbox One. Fans who own Call of Duty: Black Ops II can play it on Xbox One at no additional cost.

Black Ops II was a big shift for the Call of Duty series, which had previously been set only on generations-old wars and modern day conflicts. In addition to continuing the story of Call of Duty: Black Ops protagonist Alex Mason during the late 1980s Cold War, the game introduces Alex’s son David, who forty years later battles the same foe that tormented his father. This part of Black Ops II, set in 2025, introduces a number of futuristic technologies that has since appeared in a number of Call of Duty games since.



In addition to gameplay changes, the traditionally linear Call of Duty story structure saw an update as well. The game’s branching storylines, dictated by the actions of the player during Strike Force missions sprinkled throughout the campaign, changed the game’s ending by tilting its US/China Cold War one way or the other. The fates of a number of key characters are fluid as well, encouraging multiple playthroughs for fans who want to see it all.

Even the multiplayer got a bit of an overhaul. Pick 10, a new system within the Create-a-Class menu, offers players 10 slots per class, each of which are used for things like perks, weapons, and grenades. Another new feature was the weapon-specific progression system, which unlocked weapon attachments. Finally, Black Ops II featured the third appearance for the hugely entertaining Zombies mode, giving fans more ways to enjoy the game.
