Windows Insiders were given a special treat late on the afternoon of January 12. A second build of Windows 10 for the Fast Ring members of the Windows Insiders Program. A second build in a single week isn’t standard, but no Insider will object once they see that Game Mode has finally made its way into the latest build. As we previously reported, a .dll file was spotted a while ago. Since the...[Read More]

Latest Sea Of Thieves Inn-side Story focuses on why co-op is necessary to core gameplay

When Sea Of Thieves was first shown off during Microsoft’s E3 2016 presentation, a key aspect of the game that both the developers and Xbox made a point of discussing was the co-operative aspect. As an online-only multiplayer game, getting along with fellow piratey players is something many will find problematic if they’re not playing with close friends. But, in the developers’ l...[Read More]

Halo Wars 2 to get physical Windows 10 release

With the advent of Xbox Play Anywhere compatibility beginning with ReCore in mid-September 2016, Windows 10 gamers could buy games through the Windows Store and get a twin copy to play on an account-linked Xbox One for free.

2016 was a year of major milestones for Xbox

When looking back at 2016, gamers remember the highs and lows of getting introduced to new games and the agonizing wait of another year to rejoin their favorite franchise, but most could agree that 2016 was a hell of a year in Xbox-o-sphere. Xbox’s Corporate Vice President of Marketing Mike Nichols took to Xbox Wire today to discuss some of the huge milestones for both the company and its ga...[Read More]

After Tuesday’s Windows 10 debacle with Forza Horizon 3, we have some leaks and ideas about possible cars

It’s fair to assume that today’s update for Forza Horizon 3, which was intended to introduce the Rockstar Car Pack for players on Xbox One and Windows 10, did much more than that by doing so much less. First, the update went largely according-to-plan for Xbox users, but PC users were met with a full-game re-download (my queue personally had it at just under 59 GB). The build was halted...[Read More]

Rockstar Car Pack now available in Forza Horizon 3

While it’s no news that January would welcome yet another selection of seven cars into the Australian race-dream that is Forza Horizon 3, it was great to get confirmation that the long-anticipated and highly-whined-for BMW i8 would be among the seven. Today, the team at Turn 10 Studios are launching the Rockstar Car Pack. The Rockstar Car Pack has a wide selection of cars, from track-intende...[Read More]

Back at Microsoft’s October event where the company introduced Windows 10’s Creators Update as well as the gaming-ready Surface Studio and Surface Book with Performance Base, one thing managed to make its way into the keynote from the gaming-focused part of the world: virtual reality.
