Backwards Compatibility is something of the unsung hero for Xbox One. Microsoft keeps working on the service and has just announced that two more games have joined the program. Larry Hyrb, a.k.a. Major Nelson, made the announcement via his Twitter account that Mafia II and Prey are backwards compatible.

Here are the official descriptions of the games as well as their trailers –
Mafia II is a beautifully crafted look into the dark and unforgiving world of the Mafia. Hi-octane gunplay, brutal fighting and white-knuckle driving bust onto the screen as a Hollywood-style cinematic experience. It is the intriguing story of Vito Scaletta, who along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organized crime. Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. Starting with low-level jobs like robbery and stealing cars, Vito and Joe escalate quickly up the Mafia family ladder…but the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.
Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. Along with his people, he is abducted to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, where he sets out to save himself, his girlfriend, and eventually his planet.
