Adhere to the damn train! Rockstar ’’s train s Xbox One Backward Compatible game line-up that is. Based on Rockstar, a bunch of older names are making the leap to Xbox One beginning June 7, 2017.
The information comes by means of Rockstar who announced three new games coming to Xbox One’s Backward Compatibility service:
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andres
- Midnight Club: Los Angeles
- Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis
As I mentioned previously, the clear highlight on this listing is 2004’s Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Set against a backdrop of a San Franciso-like gang scene from the first 90’s, players take on the function of Carl “CJ” Johnson because he rises through the ranks in the street.
Placed firmly involving both Vice City and GTAIV, San Andreas feels notably dated. There has been more than enough prodding at the game for its occasionally daft gameplay and over-customization. However, the game is well-regarded as among the building blocks that helped enhance the open universe sandbox, action-adventure genre.
Besides Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the other two games offer incentives to more market Rockstar fans. For Example, Rockstar San Diego’s Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis was an enjoyable spinoff for its AAA developer. Created for the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii, the game scored well critically despite how off-beat it’s for the developer.
Meanwhile, the Midnight Club: Los Angeles arrived at PSP, PS3, and Xbox 360 at October 2008. Part of the Midnight Club series, the game features an in-game Rush Editor, sixteen-player multiplayer, and a map that dwarfs the previous games of this series.
This is not anywhere near the very first Rockstar title to make it on the Xbox One’s Backward Compatibility app. Formerly, Red Dead Redemption got the celebrity treatment — in actuality, the launch boosted sales of their Xbox 360 game by 6000 percent .
The same as all Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles, all that’s required to perform these games would be an Xbox 360 buy (physically or digitally) of one or more of these games. For those seeking to re-acquaint with Big Smoke, you can grab San Andreas via Amazon.
