View and download game content and add-ons on Xbox One

Many Xbox One games have add-ons such as new in-game items or new playable levels that you can buy from the Microsoft Store.

Note To access your downloads, make sure you're signed in with the Microsoft account you used to purchase and download the content. See How to find games and game content after you redeem a code online on Xbox One for help with automatic downloads of your purchases.

Find games or apps that are currently installed

  1. While on the Home screen, scroll down to My games & apps, select See all, and press the A button on your controller to open it.
  2. Select Games or Apps.
  3. Your content will appear alphabetically. However, there are additional sort options you can use.

View add-ons for a specific game

If you already own the game and want to see available add-ons to download:

  1. In My games & apps, select See all, locate the game, and then press the Menu button.
  2. Select Manage game & add-ons.
  3. Select the Ready to install tab.
  4. Select the add-on you want to install.
  5. Press the A button to install the add-on, or select Install all.

If you don’t own the game but want to browse available add-ons in the Microsoft Store:

  1. Return to the Home screen, scroll right to Store, and then select Search.
  2. Enter the game title, and then select Search.
  3. Select the game from the list of search results.
  4. If add-ons are available for the game, they will appear below the game on the game description page within the store.

Find games, apps, add-ons, or content packs that you downloaded but uninstalled

  1. While on the Home screen, scroll down and select My games & apps, and then select See all.
  2. Select Games or Apps.
  3. Select the Ready to install tab at the top to view any games or apps you own that aren’t installed to your hard drive.
  4. To view add-ons for a game that have not yet installed to your hard drive, select the game, press the Menu button, and then select Manage game & add-ons to see a Ready to install tab for that game.

Download add-ons you’ve purchased as part of a bundle

If multiple add-ons were included in a single purchase, such as a season pass or a limited edition game bundle, you may need to download them separately. There are two ways to download the individual items:

  • Inside the game, look for a store. Find what’s included in the season pass and do your downloading there.
  • Download the individual add-ons from the Microsoft Store:
    1. While on the Home screen, scroll down and select My games & apps, and then select See all.
    2. Locate the game, and then press the Menu button.
    3. Select Manage game & add-ons.
    4. In the Ready to install tab , select the add-on you want to install.
    5. Press the A button to install the add-on.

If you’re having issues downloading your add-ons, see Troubleshoot game or app installation problems on Xbox One.
