Xbox One gamers, heads up: it's time to head back to Liberty City. Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes from Liberty City are now playable on Xbox One via backward compatibility.

Grand Theft Auto has been a heavy hitter franchise for a while now, and scoring both GTA IV and Episodes from Liberty City is definitely a boon for the backward compatible list. If you already own the game digitally, you should be able to install GTA IV from the "Ready to Install" section of your Xbox One now. If you have it on disc, all you have to do is pop it in.

If you're new to GTA IV, however, you can dive in by grabbing the game for $20 at the Xbox 360 Marketplace now. All of the DLC is also up for grabs, including both Episodes from Liberty City experiences, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. And as always, if you're in the market for more backward compatible games, be sure to check out our comprehensive rundown of every title on the list.
