Dark Souls Coming to Xbox One

/ Feb 15th, 2016 No Comments

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls will be coming to Xbox One via backwards compatibility, according to an Australian pre-order page for Dark Souls 3.

Microsoft’s page mentioned that purchasing a digital pre-order of Dark Souls 3 on the Xbox One store would net the copy of the original Dark Souls. Within seven to ten days players will receive a code for the game in their Xbox message center.
 

Dark Souls 3

The pre-order page strongly alludes to Dark Souls coming to Xbox One.

From Software and Bandai Namco released Dark Souls for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011. The game spawned a sequel in 2014 and a spiritual successor with Bloodborne being released in 2015 exclusively for PS4.

Xbox One’s backwards compatibility has brought many games from the previous generation onto the console. While Dark Souls 2 received an updated release for PS4 and Xbox One, the original Dark Souls has been restricted to last gen consoles and the PC. Though far from a remaster, it can bring the game to a wider audience.

Dark Souls 3 will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 12, 2016.

Quick Take

From Software has etched out a legacy with its Souls game. Dark Souls has received universal acclaim for its difficulty and unique gameplay. It’s great that players will have the chance to play the game on Xbox One through backwards compatibility. The program has been a great win for Microsoft in recent months as more and more titles are made available. The program certainly gives Microsoft one leg up against Sony when it comes to being friendly towards last gen experiences.
