November will bring some major updates to the Xbox One's system software, Microsoft announced at its Gamescom 2015 briefing today.

Backward compatibility will finally land on the console for all users, following its surprise announcement at E3 in June.

Over 100 Xbox 360 titles will be playable at launch, including Fallout 3, Dark Souls, and BioShock, and all future Xbox 360 Games With Gold titles will be made backwards compatible with Xbox One.

The Xbox One's system software will also see a refresh, with a new dashboard powered by Windows 10.

Featuring a wholly redesigned interface, the new dashboard aims to enhance the console's multitasking, speed, and community features.

Cortana comes full circle in the update, with the Windows 10 personal assistant returning to the Xbox via Kinect voice activation.

The new software will hit in November, although some testers will receive the Windows 10 update in September.
