Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Game Rage Now Available Digitally

Before today, you needed to own the Xbox 360 disc to play the id Software shooter on Xbox One.


Id Software's shooter Rage was added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility catalog in October 2016. Its release was good news for fans wanting to play the Xbox 360 game on Xbox One, but the catch was that it required the physical disc; it could not be purchased digitally.

That changes today. For the first time, Rage can now be bought digitally on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Microsoft announced. You can buy the game on your console for $15 or through this Xbox Store page; it weighs in at 21.2 GB.

In other Xbox One backwards compatibility news, Square Enix's Hitman: Absolution joined the catalog on Tuesday. Additionally, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said Call of Duty: Black Ops II will not join the lineup this week. He really wants the game to be added to the catalog but said you shouldn't expect it soon.

The Xbox One's backwards compatibility library has more than 320 games in it, including Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV--you can see them all here.
