Screenshots have emerged online that an Xbox One user was able to successfully install a digital version of Left 4 Dead 2 on their Xbox One.
It becoming a BC title would be huge & welcomed. ( Wow Guess u can't be happy here)
You're right, L4D2 would be an awesome addition to Xbox One's BC list - while we're on Valve sequels, Portal 2 announcement would also be great
Interested to see stats on how many users actually use BC over pontificating about it online. Yeah it's great in spirit and a nice to have but is it practical in reality? I still have my last gen systems but the feeling of getting behind on my current gen games is weighing on me much more than my desire to revisit a game that was released years ago. My brain currently automatically goes "must continue to play fallout, must finish witcher find barons daughter, must complete Metal gear act ii, must open wrapping on Farcry... must Destroy Deathshead in wolfenstien".
This would be great for the Xbox gamers. Edit: I never played on Xbox 360 so would be like whole new game for me on Xbox One...HAI!!!
Why can't you be happy? You have 26 agrees lol. So confused. This would be great news, Left 4 Dead 2 was fantastic.
Started out with disagrees for some apparent reason , guess wanting a good game to be BC is bad to some. Eventually the ones with sense showed up and started agreeing with the comment .
Any good news for Xbox owners is frowned upon here. Sad but true imo
@castillo I don't think it would be huge, but it will most definitely be welcomed, it was my favorite 360 game, and easily in the top 3 of my most played games of last-gen. Left 4 Dead, Warhawk, and Uncahrted 2 were my most played games.
Very interested to see if February will have this surprise waiting
We should hear about February's GWG this week (usually around the last Thursday of the month), so that would be a great surprise!
Cool. The L4D community could use the revival on Live
Pretty sure the L4D community doesn't care because they all play custom maps on pc. Helms deep is the greatest L4D map ever.
Suckitez, ahh well we talk Xbox not PC.
They are changing their policy of BC games. It's now 'When they are ready' instead of bunching them together at a set date.
Wow...let L4D2 be happening for next months GwG! And if so I wonder if that would be any indication for the rumored part 3 happening soon.
That would be awesome to play L4D2 on the Xbox One. A must have on the BC list!
If that goes BC, you will definitely see a fairly large base flocking to it.
Now this would be awesome
Please let this come to GwG. The GwG selection for 360 is looking pretty paltry if the list of BC games doesn't improve soon.
I'm fairly certain GWG will be used as an announcement of BC games from here on out.
Am I the only one who would MUCH RATHER see the original?
I agree with you, loved the first. It seemed more challenging to me.
The first game had better level design in my opinion, but on pc you got all the L4D1 maps to play on LFD2, not to mention unlimited custom maps, and it can run on pretty much any pc or laptop made after 2010.
You can play the original maps in the 2nd game. Even on consoles.
What about original characters? Gotta love Bill.
Oh for sure! Wouldn't be the same without them. Mind you I found there to be less story dialogue interactions in the lfd2 version of the original maps. Which is kind of lame.
But could he play it?
Thats what i want to know
No he couldn't. It said to insert disc. I assume it hasn't been authenticated yet by MS. Still pretty pumped if this does happen.
Can we get the Orange Box while we're at it?
That would be great! So many good games in the Orange Box.
Oh please Microsoft get this on the Xbox One BC too!
but.... does it work? Cause man... I would KILL for this to be XBox One back compat
This would be great as I've never truly played the series. If you clink on this link you will notice that the same user, I believe, also shows himself to have downloaded Red Dead Redemption.
For a second there I thought someone installed a pc only game on the Xbox... Didn't know this game came out on the 360
I'm even more skeptical now, he has Max Payne 3 and Trials HD installed too. Neither of which are backwards compatible yet.
@dark Maybe it's temporarily exclusive (beta testing) for preview members? I know back when I had preview I could get Perfect Dark (XBLA), and a couple other games before the regular firmware people could.
Please be true! I played L4D1 a ton, but got busy when L4D2 hit, so I hardly played it. Would LOVE the chance to play it with my Xbox One Elite controller. So far a lot of these BC games are making way into my regular rotation! Can't give enough props to Microsoft for paying attention to what gamers want.
That's awesome. I love l4d but really, I hope you don't mean that "what gamers want" isn't just old games on newer hardware.
Gamers wanted backwards compatibility, Elite controller ect.. That's what I meant. Options are nice.
I own a digital copy of l4d 2 and I don't see it in the ready to download section I'm also a preview member
I'd actually prefer L4D over LFD2. I have so many memories of me and my friends sneaking past the witch only for me to unload a one shot kill will the shot gun to the head lol. Good times
