This not only includes the base game, but it’s two expansions as well, The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Xbox owners can play the game today simply by installing it if it was in their digital Xbox 360 library, or inserting the disc into their Xbox One console, regardless of version according to Rockstar Newswire:
All versions of the game, including Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition, are compatible on Xbox One. Digital game owners have instant access on Xbox One, so they can download Grand Theft Auto IV directly from the “Ready to Install” section of their Xbox One and play at will. Physical game owners can just insert the Xbox 360 game disc into their Xbox One and download the game. Your original game saves will also transfer if you have saved your game to the Cloud Saved Games feature on Xbox 360.
With the inclusion of Grand Theft Auto IV and its expansions, as well as Lego Indiana Jones, this brings the count of Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One to 330, with the list growing every month.
