Deadly Premonition Joins Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Lineup

Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro and Access Games’ cult classic Deadly Premonition has been added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility lineup.

The mystery-thriller is now available to play on the console as an Xbox 360 backwards compatible game.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Playing as special agent Francis York Morgan (call him York – everyone else does), it’s your job to investigate the brutal murder of a young local beauty in the town of Greenvale. Amidst the backdrop of soaring mountains and a small American suburb, York must solve the mystery of the Red Seed Murders and stay alive in a place where supernatural creatures and a mysterious raincoat-clad, axe-wielding killer seek to end his investigation for good. 

Part suspense-filled horror, part action-adventure game, Deadly Premonition offers an open-world experience packed with locals to meet and places to discover, as well as numerous side quests and mini-games that will help you solve the murders and uncover Greenvale’s deepest, darkest secrets.

Deadly Premonition has been available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and later on PC (via Steam). It’s worth pointing out the PC version is a high-definition Director’s Cut, with updated graphics and new content. Check out the entire list of Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One here.
