Seven more games were recently added on the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games list this week, including "Silent Hill: Downpour."

The game "Silent Hill: Downpour" will be joined by "Eat Lead," "Puzzle Quest," "Jurassic Park: The Game," "Battlestations: Midway," "Dragon's Lair," and "Tour de France 2011."

There have been rumors that hit game "Black Ops 2" will be added on the list after the title was mistakenly listed on the Deals with Gold list. However, they later removed it because it was posted due to an error.
