Tomb Raider: Underworld comes to Xbox One backward compatibility

The list of backward compatible games on Xbox One has picked up another addition today courtesy of Tomb Raider: Underworld. If you already own the game, you should be able to install it and start playing right away on your console.

If you're familiar with the Tomb Raider series, you'll know what to expect from the gameplay in Tomb Raider: Underworld. The game again follows protagonist Lara Croft as she explores exotic locations across Thailand, the Artic, Mexico and more. Throughout the game, you'll be tasked with solving complicated environmental puzzles, climbing, rappelling, and taking down formidable enemies along the way.

Tomb Raider: Underworld is up for grabs now for $19.99 in the Xbox 360 Marketplace. The game also joins 3 others that joined the backward compatible list earlier in the week, including Red Faction: Armageddon, GYRUSS, and Raiden IV.

  • 2nd best game in the Cristal Dynamics trilogy. And 4th best TR game overall IMO.
  • Personally I found Legend had a good story and locations but too much combat against mercenaries, and in Anniversary the boss battles were just too difficult and I never completed it. Underworld is definetly my favourite, I just wish that they hadn't blown up Lara's mansion.
  • Awesome! Now they need to add the rest of the TR games
  • Have it for the PS3 and really liked I'll definitely wait for the next sale when that will most likely be put on a nice discount.
  • I'm really happy to be able to play this again, Underworld is my favourite Tomb Raider, and I much prefer the classic Lara game to the reboot Lara. The DLCs were good fun as well, and rounded off the story nicely. Finally I can play Tomb Raider in front of my children again - they insist I use the tranquiliser gun on the panthers and tigers, but shotgunning giant spiders is fine ;-).
