Dark Souls tortures Xbox One players via backwards compatibility; free with Dark Souls 3 pre-order

Dark Souls is coming to the Xbox One. We're not entirely sure if we should be happy about that or not.


Dark Souls 3 is coming to get you in April 2016, but before it releases, we hope you’re all caught up on the previous two games as your first time with the series will guarantee to offer a bad time. Thankfully, Microsoft has announced the original Dark Souls will be coming to the Xbox One via its backwards compatibility feature.

According to the Dark Souls 3 Xbox Store listing, Dark Souls will be available to play on the Xbox One soon. Those who pre-order Dark Souls 3 digitally via the Xbox Store will receive a redeemable code to download the original Dark Souls for free, which will be delivered between 7 to 10 days after your pre-order.
