Call of Duty: World at War Is Now Backwards Compatible On Xbox One

Treyarch’s Call of Duty: World at War joins a growing a list of classic first-person shooter games making their way to Xbox One’s backwards compatibility program.

Today, Xbox announced that the fan-favorite World War II shooter, originally on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, is joining now Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, and Call of Duty: Black Ops on Xbox One. Each title can now be purchased separately on Xbox One as well.

For many, World at War was their first experience with Call of Duty multiplayer or Call of Duty in general. The game is also Treyarch’s first second crack at developing a numbered entry in the series in parallel with Infinity Ward who went on to move the series forward into a modern era with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare a year earlier.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, a project in the works at Raven Software, launches alongside Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare later this Fall.

    They made this hackfest backwards compatible? Even though WaW was like my second most favorite COD (behind the original BO), this game is near unplayable with all the god mode hackers.

      I’m only playing it for the Singleplayer. No way I’d touch MW/WAW servers again

        But that’s only a one time thing. Play, finish, done. Especially if you have done it before already. To me, this COD had almost the best story of every other, but I wouldn’t necessarily do it again unless hunting for trophies/achievements.

    World @ War came out after COD4, it sounds like you’re saying the opposite. Also wouldn’t COD3 be Treyarch’s first crack at the series.

    • Yeah, I kinda botched that section. Made some corrections. Thanks!

        Cool, thanks.

    I loved the goryness of WaW on Xbox360. Player shouting was nice too (since I speak all 3 languages).

    I switched my 9/5 job for working online and now I make $75-95 per hr. My work didn’t bring me enough satisfaction so I decided to take a chance on something new… I’ve found this, the simplest and easiest way of making bucks and now I couldn’t be happier. This is what I do
