1Dark Souls 3 Pre-Order And Day 1 To Get The Original Dark Souls Free On Xbox One

We love backwards compatibility right gamers? It’s cool we can play our older games again because some of them just can’t be beaten by any new stuff. So when, like in this case with Dark Souls 3, they come for free it’s even better.

So for those gamers on Xbox One who pre-order the game digitally or get the game as a Day 1 edition will get the original Dark Souls free via backwards compatibility. Full statement from Bandai Namco is below for you.


Some further information detailing the digital and physical pre-orders of DARK SOULS III on Xbox One, specifically regarding the backwards compatible version of the original DARK SOULS. Please find below an official statement:

“We are proud to give gamers a variety of ways to purchase and experience their games as well as offering a host of differently timed promotions for those that grab their copies early.

With that, we are excited that all digital pre-order and day one physical disc purchases of Dark Souls III for Xbox One will include a copy of the original Dark Souls.  If you digitally pre-order Dark Souls III for Xbox One from the Xbox Store, you will receive a token for the original Dark Souls within 7-10 days of your purchase.

If you purchase a physical disc of Dark Souls III for Xbox One from a retail store at launch, a digital token for the original Dark Souls will be included with the game at participating retailers while supplies last”.
