Grand Theft Auto IV Is Now Backwards Compatible

By Rich Stone, 2 years ago
One of the most highly-regarded titles of all time, Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV is now playable on the Xbox One via the Backwards Compatibility Program.

Today's update will include all versions of the game, as well as both "The Lost and Damned" and "The Ballad of Gay Tony" DLC packs.

All versions of the game, including Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition, are compatible on Xbox One. Digital game owners have instant access on Xbox One, so they can download Grand Theft Auto IV directly from the “Ready to Install” section of their Xbox One and play at will. Physical game owners can just insert the Xbox 360 game disc into their Xbox One and download the game. Your original game saves will also transfer if you have saved your game to the Cloud Saved Games feature on Xbox 360.

As always, you can view the full list of backwards compatible games here.

Are you looking forwards to heading back to Liberty City with Niko Bellic?
