Overlord and Overlord 2 are now backward-compatible on Xbox One

Codemasters’ comedic action-strategy games Overlord and Overload 2 are the latest titles to receive backward-compatibility support on Xbox One.

The original Overlord was developed by Triumph Studios and released on Xbox 360 and PC back in 2007, turning up a year later on PS3 in its expanded Raising Hell form.
