For those in the Xbox One Dashboard preview program, life just got a little bit sweeter as the original Borderlands has been added to the list of Backward Compatibility titles. While gamers have been able to play Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! before if they picked up Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, they’ll now be able to play the full series without having to switch back to their Xbox 360.
“We are proud to support Xbox One Backward Compatibility by bringing the complete, original Borderlands to Xbox One, including all downloadable content,” said 2K President Christoph Hartmann. “We know many of our fans have put in dozens, even hundreds, of hours exploring the world of Pandora on their Xbox 360, and now they can continue their adventures on Xbox One.”
The addition of Borderlands follows last month’s inclusion of the original Gears of War to Microsoft’s Backward Compatibility program which is set to release to all Xbox One gamers in November and is currently available to those in the Xbox One preview program. Xbox is expected to have over 100 Xbox 360 titles playable on the Xbox One by the November launch with hundreds more coming after launch.
