DLC Disc Works On XBox One?

Well, since this game has now gone Backward Compatible on the XBox One, I was just curious to know if the Disc that contains the DLC for the game works on the XBox One Console and allows it to be imported, without purchasing it?

I personally have finished the game, but I've been asked by outsiders on TA, if this was to work, so I thought I'd ask here just in case. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here is a link to a Disc that contains the DLC to give you an idea. It's called the Legacy Edition...

Many Thanks

I just tested it and the DLC disc just launches the game. Not sure how I am supposed to access the coop packs now...

Does it have anything in the "Ready To Install" section when you put those discs in?

I guess it's safe to say we revealed the Disc cannot be used on the XBox One console. That's going to be a pain for anyone who doesn't own the DLC and doesn't own an XBox 360 anymore.

why would this be a pain a legacy copy of this game costs 1 euro here locally and 50p in the uk if you got an xbox 360 this easily boostable

The issue is that the disc does not work on the XBox One console and the game is Backward Compatible. Chances are, people would like to use this disc on the XBox One console, so that they do not have to buy the DLC from the store. But the disc so far only works on an XBox 360 console. Some people (well, not me) don't have an XBox 360 anymore and I believe, they would have liked to have this disc to work with reasons as said above.

You have other games that have a similar disc, but they work on the XBox One console. For instance the XBox 360 Game Of The Year Edition of Borderlands has a DLC Disc and that works fine. So there shouldn't be any rhyme or reason, this DLC disc for this game shouldn't work.

True but really mate people are completionists on this site, so they will grab a legacy copy since its one cheaper then the digital dlc and secondly most hardcore boosters have atleast 2 360s if not more. I double boxed the main game it took me like 2 hrs to complete all but the enforcer and the 1 hour defence the enforcer achievement i will get today and i have a session later this week for the defence so thats base game done without much help from outside. I will do the dlc coop achievements too double boxed since you only need one copy of the legacy to spread the dlc to all your boxes. Anyhow yeah i know about that the dlc disks from many games do work on x1 but the dlc disk from fable does not which is also annoying. Imo they should make all dlcs a few euros each since not many people are buying old dlc foe games since communities are more then often dead. Thou i found a random yesterday when boosting import tuner challange a race game from 2006 xd. If you do happen to have a copy from the legacy ill gladly play it with you

I bought a best sellers version of the game today for 50p from cex and it only comes with 1 disc with everything on it . When u install that disc all the dlc for the legacy edition installs with it. Hope this helps
