“Red Dead Redemption” Now Playable on Xbox One with Backward Compatibility
Rejoice Red Dead fans. The Xbox 360 version of Red Dead Redemption is now backward compatible on Xbox One.
Digital game owners now have instant access to the game on Xbox One, so they can download it from the “Ready to Install” section of their Xbox One and play it at will. Physical game owners can just pop the Xbox 360 game disc into their Xbox One and download the game.
Red Dead Redmeption‘s narrative follows reformed outlaw John Marston on his journey across the American frontier to hunt down the members of his former gang.
All versions of the game (Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare and Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition) are compatible on Xbox One. And for those who did not experience it the first time around, the fright-filled Undead Nightmare story is available for download from the Xbox Games Store. Furthermore, anyone who doesn’t already have Red Dead Redemption as part of their collection can now get it directly from the Games Store on Xbox One.
Happy hunting. Let’s hope this is just priming us for Red Dead 2.
