You get to play the original Dark Souls on Xbox One if you buy Dark Souls 3 digitally.
The Australian Xbox Store (via Reddit) has let slip a neat bonus for those getting Dark Souls 3 for Xbox One. A digital purchase of the upcoming title will get you a free copy of the original Dark Souls as a backwards compatible title.
Namco has yet to officially announce this, or the season pass details. Much like other game franchises that had a similar bonus, it’s a limited-time offer, and your game will be delivered via a code in 7-10 days after purchase.
This is good news for those who owned the original game on Xbox 360, as it indicates it will soon be available to play on Xbox One, regardless of whether or not you’re buying the latest iteration.
Dark Souls 3 is out April 12 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
