Fans of the Borderlands game franchise will be happy to learn that the first game in Gearbox Software's first-person shooter-RPG series, made for the Xbox 360, will be able to be played on Microsoft's Xbox One console. The game will be available via the console's upcoming backward compatibility feature.

People who are signed up for the Xbox One Preview Program and have a copy of Borderlands for the Xbox 360 can go ahead and play the game now, along with any previously-saved files, game add-ons and achievements. The other two games in the series, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, are already available as a direct Xbox One port in the recent game bundle Borderlands: The Handsome Collection.

Currently, Xbox preview members can play 25 Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One with the backward compatibility feature. Microsoft says that over 100 Xbox 360 games will support the feature when the Xbox One officially launches backward compatibility support sometime in November.
