Rockstar Brings More to Xbox Backward Compatibility
Xbox Backward Compatibility is expanding yet again, thanks to the involvement of Rockstar Games. Today, the developer announced the addition of three classic games from their portfolio. Those are none other than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, and Table Tennis.
All three titles will be making their way to Xbox Backward Compatibility on June 7th, the company revealed on their website. Owners of these classic titles will remember the west-coast inspired San Andreas as well as the high-speed innovation if Midnight Club: Los Angeles. But there’s simply no forgetting Table Tennis. Combined with Red Dead Redemption, a diverse lineup of Rockstar-developed games will soon be accessible in one place.
GRAND THEFT AUTO: SAN ANDREAS
After escaping the pressures of life in Los Santos, Carl Johnson returns home after his mom’s murder to find his family falling apart, his childhood friends all heading towards disaster, and corrupt neighborhood cops framing him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.
Both the original Xbox release and the Xbox 360 version of San Andreas will be backward compatible. Save games from the original Xbox version will not transfer, however owners of that version will get the upgraded Xbox 360 version of the game, featuring higher resolution, enhanced draw distances, and Achievements.
MIDNIGHT CLUB: LOS ANGELES
Race at breakneck speeds through the streets of Los Angeles in a collection of real-world tuners, muscle cars, exotics and superbikes. Customize your vehicle with the best after-market performance parts and custom kits.
Both the original version and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition – which adds the iconic South Central area along with new vehicles, aftermarket parts, music and races – will be compatible on Xbox One.
ROCKSTAR GAMES PRESENTS: TABLE TENNIS
Experience the unmatched intensity of real-world competitive table tennis with an authentic physics engine and intuitive gameplay that mimics the exhilarating experience found in true international competition.
Choose from 11 distinct characters, each with their own style of play, and guide them to ultimate victory by mastering all the shots and techniques, including power shots, heavy spin and precision accuracy.
Since the announcement of new Backward Compatibility titles came from Rockstar, there’s still a chance Microsoft will announce more titles in the near future. We’ll have more updates as they come.
