The Orange Box arrives on Xbox One BC

Big news on the backward compatibility front with word that The Orange Box, Valve’s compilation of their biggest and best titles, will now work on Xbox One. Consisting of Half-Life 2, Half Life 2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2, it was one of the best value releases ever on the Xbox 360 with a staggering amount of content all packed onto a single disc.

Even if it were just Half-Life 2 released it would have been considered a big deal (it had previously been available on the original Xbox) as it is a brilliant game deserving of recognition. But the addition of the episodes, the debut of an innovative puzzler in Portal and multiplayer battles in Team Fortress 2 ensured that there was something in it for everyone.
