Red Dead Redemption on Xbox One

Since announcement of the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility with 360 titles, Red Dead Redemption has been one of the top voted games to be made available for the console. It’s recently been uncovered that Rockstar’s open world of gunslinging antics is now compatible with the Xbox One, but there’s a little legwork required to get the game running as.

In order to make Red Dead Redemption playable on the Xbox One (via. GameSpot), you need to own a digital copy of the game for Xbox 360, or purchase it from the Xbox Marketplace for $29.99 (£24.99). It has also been reported that you’ll need to be following someone who owns the game, accessing it via their game history and either buying or installing the game through Xbox Live Marketplace.

Physical versions of Red Dead Redemption are currently not supported.

Microsoft announced last month that new titles would be coming to backwards compatibility as they became available, and not according to a regular schedule. At the time, Microsoft commented:

“What this means for you is that you won’t have to wait to find out the latest titles. We’ll release whatever is available, when they’re available, once each title has received the engineering and publisher stamp of approval.”

As for how Red Dead Redemption plays on Xbox One, one bug has so far been encountered. This could, however, have easily been an issue on Xbox 360, and others who have installed the game have reported reasonably smooth experiences.

Other games have been reported as playable in a similar manner to Red Dead Redemption and include Left 4 Dead 2, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Tekken Tournament 2. There are currently around 130 games on Xbox’s backwards compatibility program.
