Today, Rockstar Games announced three new additions to the Xbox One backward compatible library. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, and Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis, will all be playable next Thursday, June 7, 2018 on the system. These titles join the recently-added Bully: Scholarship Edition, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Red Dead Redemption. Many gamers have been requesting these titles for years now, so it's great to see Rockstar working with Microsoft to make it happen.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
After escaping the pressures of life in Los Santos, Carl Johnson returns home after his mother's murder to find his family falling apart, his childhood friends all heading towards disaster, and corrupt neighborhood cops framing him for homicide. Johnson is forced on a criminal journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family, and to take control of the violent streets. Please note that both the original Xbox release and the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be backward compatible. Save games from the original Xbox version will not transfer, but owners of that version will get the upgraded Xbox 360 release of the game. The Xbox 360 brings higher-resolution textures, better lighting, and other enhancements.
Midnight Club: Los Angeles
Midnight Club: Los Angeles requires you to race at insane speeds through the streets in a collection of tuners, muscle cars, exotics and motorcycles. You can also customize your vehicle with the best performance parts and custom kits. Note that both the original version and Midnight Club: Los Angeles - Complete Edition will be backward compatible on Xbox One.
Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis
This is by far the most surprising addition. Rockstar's Table Tennis combines the unmatched intensity of competitive table tennis with an authentic physics engine and intuitive gameplay that mimics the experience found in international competitions. You can choose from eleven characters, each with their own style, and guide them to ultimate victory by mastering all of the shots and techniques.
Next Thursday, digital owners can find the games in the "Ready to install" section of their consoles. They cost roughly $15 at various retailers. If you own a physical copy, you just need to insert it into your Xbox One and download the game. As great as all of these titles are, hopefully Max Payne 3 will be added soon because that's the one we've all been waiting for!
