Dante's Inferno Now Backwards Compatible on Xbox One - EA Access Vault Soon

Ubisoft's RUSE is also now playable on Xbox One consoles.

After making the superb Dead Space, EA's Visceral released Dante's Inferno, a third-person hack 'n' slash in the vein of God of War. The Xbox 360 version of the game is now playable on Xbox One consoles via backwards compatibility, as is Ubisoft's RUSE.

If you own the Xbox 360 disc of Dante's Inferno or RUSE you'll be able to play them on your Xbox One, otherwise you can buy them digitally. The pair are rather expensive for games of their game, with Dante's Inferno costing $14.99 and RUSE $19.99.

Dante's Inferno suffered on its release in 2010 as it couldn't compete with the visually incredible God of War 3. I found it to be a solid game in the genre, though, with its 60fps gameplay offering some strong combat. The game even set up a sequel, but it was never to be. The Xbox 360 version of Dante's Inferno sits on a rating of 73 on Metacritic.

RUSE offered something a little different.

RUSE arrived in 2010 when RTS games were still being pushed to console owners, and did a decent job at tailoring the genre to that audience. It also had a unique ruse mechanic that added a new bluffing dynamic to the tried and tested RTS systems. RUSE on Xbox 360 has a Metacritic rating of 78.

Dante's Inferno is also coming to the EA Access Vault on Xbox One. It should be added to the library later this week, with more games coming soon, including FIFA 18.

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
