Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series marked most of our gaming days, with San Andreas being everyone’s favorite during the early 2000’s. Now, Rockstar has announced that gamers will get to play GTA: San Andreas on Xbox One as well as two other games – Midnight Club: Los Angeles and Rockstar Games Presents: Table Tennis. The three games will be brought back to the Xbox One as a part of the console’s backwards compatibility feature and will be available from June 7. If you have the original disc, both the Xbox and Xbox 360 versions will also be compatible with Xbox One.
Although the other two games are vastly popular, it is San Andreas that sparkled the most attention and is, as mentioned above, the number one game in the GTA series. The game’s scenery is a fictional version of California, which is the same playing ground for the Grand Theft Auto V, which is considered the best-selling game in the GTA series. On the other hand, Midnight Club: Los Angeles is a racing game that was introduced to the world in 2008. Table Tennis is a mere surprise to everyone, and it shows how the developer approaches sports while still being known for creating violent action games.
As mentioned, both Xbox and Xbox 360 games will work on Microsoft’s most recent console. However, the save files from Xbox won’t be able to be transferred to the Xbox One. Nevertheless, if you own the OG Xbox version, you can get the Xbox 360 HD remaster that contains all the crucial Achievements.
Since the sequel of the Red Dead Redemption is coming out this year, the original Red Dead Redemption is also available on Rockstar’s backwards compatibility list and now to be joined by the three mentioned games. In case you have the digital versions of the game, they’ll appear in the “Ready to Install” tab after they come to the Xbox One on June 7. However, those with the disc can insert it and download the game.
