UPDATE: Bandai Namco's official announcement suggests that Dark Souls may not be backward compatible with Xbox One quite as soon as initially thought, confirming that it'll be playable on the console "later".

"For a limited time, gamers who digitally pre-order DARK SOULS III on the Xbox One Store will receive the original DARK SOULS; playable now on Xbox 360, or on Xbox One later via Backward Compatibility," Bandai Namco said. "The code for DARK SOULS will be delivered to their Xbox message center in 7-10 days."

VideoGamer.com has contacted Bandai Namco for further clarification on the backwards compatibility release timing.

ORIGINAL STORY: The original Dark Souls will soon be backwards compatible with Xbox One and available for free with all digital pre-orders of Dark Souls 3, Microsoft has revealed.

As spotted by Reddit, the Australian Xbox Store states that download codes for the original Dark Souls will be delivered to pre-order customers within 7-10 days of purchasing, suggesting the game could be made backward compatible within the next week.

Microsoft has yet to formally announce Dark Souls for Xbox One backwards compatibility or confirm when exactly it will be available on the service. The deal is not yet live on the UK Xbox Store.

Dark Souls 3 launches in the UK on PS4, Xbox One and PC on April 12. The latest backwards compatible Xbox 360 title was released on Xbox One earlier today.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do..

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

I tried Gears 2 yesterday (easily the best Gears game) and it runs like it did on the 360. No issues at all. I did some solo Horde on Nowhere, and man, Gears has become quite casual now. I'd forgotten how little damage you could take before being downed/killed.

That's fine, all of the xbox 360 games that run on xbox one run terribly, Halo: Reach being the most egregious example of that. Terrible frame rate (not something that normally bothers me) kills the game, that and Banjo Kazooie nuts and bolts also was unplayable and appeared to suffer from input lag. I I picked up my old copy of gears of war 3 and im genuinely dreading putting it into my console. I just hope they get Dark Souls right and make it work, because thats one old 360 game i would love to go and play again.
