If you own DLC for any of your previously purchased Xbox 360 games we have good news for you, the DLC will still work on Xbox One. If you don’t yet own the DLC don’t panic as it’s not all doom and gloom as explained further down.
Microsoft have confirmed that all the DLC you bought for your Xbox 360 games will carry over to Xbox One, But only if the game is backwards compatible.
In cases where you don’t yet own DLC for a game, you won’t be able to buy it through the Xbox One console. However a Microsoft representative has confirmed that you can buy said DLC from an Xbox 360 or through Xbox.com.
“Right now, Backward Compatibility does not emulate the Xbox 360 store and new Xbox 360 games can be purchased on your Xbox 360 or via Xbox.com,” the representative said.
If you want to navigate to the DLC you already own on your Xbox One, you’ll find it under the ‘Ready to Install’ section for each game. You can get there by clicking ‘Manage Game’.
Xbox One’s backwards compatibility officially launches today, 12 hours after the new dashboard becomes available. You can find more information on the backwards compatibility here.
