    Game Epically on Windows 10


    PC gaming is at its best on Windows 10 thanks to awesome integration with Xbox. But that doesn’t mean you need be a hardcore Xbox gamer to have a blast playing games on Windows 10. Heck, you don’t even need to own an Xbox (but, of course, we wouldn’t blame you if you did). Windows 10 is about making all of your PC experiences more human, and that includes playing games. And we mean all games, from classics like Solitaire, to hardcore PC games like Dota 2, or games from epic Xbox franchises like Gears of War and Fable.

    From recording epic moments in virtually any game from any gaming service, to joining the greatest online gaming community in Xbox Live, to building your gaming legacy and even streaming Xbox One games to your PC or tablet (if you do have an Xbox), you’ll find many great reasons to game with Windows 10. Let’s take a closer look.



    Xbox Live on Windows 10

    Xbox Live** has been on the cutting edge of online social gaming since 2002. It’s where gamers today get together, team up, show off, and do what they love – play games. Xbox Live comes to Windows 10 via the integrated Xbox app. You can start a whole new chapter in your gaming life, build a new army of gaming friends and kick off your gaming legacy. Oh, and Xbox Live membership on Windows 10 is free. So, free Windows 10*** + free Xbox Live = GAME ON!

    If you’re an Xbox Live member already, all your friends and Xbox Live activities come with you to Windows 10. See what your friends are up to, view your gaming legacy and continue to build your Gamerscore through the Achievements you earn in-game, watch and share the epic game clips you’ve created on Xbox One or Windows 10, message and chat with friends via cross-device parties, and view your entire game collection. Whether you’re on your Windows 10 PC or your Xbox One, you’ll always have your gaming life at your fingertips.

    DirectX 12 Brings Amazing Graphics

    DirectX 12 technology unlocks the full capability of your PC’s graphics card to give you superior visuals with a higher level of realism. Because DirectX 12 is built into Windows 10, you can experience the stunning quality of DX 12 graphics, even on existing systems when you upgrade to Windows 10. ** Games created for DirectX 12, like Fable Legends, will look downright amazing. Windows 10 also gives your PC optimal CPU and GPU output when gaming, which is sweet, too. This means that when you’re playing in full screen, your PC is putting more resources into everything that makes your game run smoother and look better.

    Capture Your Greatest Gaming Moments

    With Game DVR**, you can capture your best moves for any game that you’re playing (hear that Solitaire fans?!) quickly, easily and without leaving your game, simply by pressing the Windows and G keys. You can then use the Xbox app – where all your gaming activities come together – to edit and share your recorded clips with your friends. Your Game DVR clips can be saved to a folder on your PC, from which you can share your recorded clips to your social channels like Facebook and YouTube.



    Cross-device Gameplay


    People play games on different devices today, so we made Windows 10 play with people on different devices, too. The cross-device barriers are down – starting soon, you’ll be able to play select games with or against your friends across Windows 10 and Xbox One.** Because Xbox Live reaches Windows 10 PCs, phones, tablets, and Xbox consoles, you have more options for people to play with or against. You can also start playing a game on your PC and continue later on your Xbox. Or you and your friends can team up on your PCs and pound someone playing on the console.

    Xbox One to Windows 10 PC Game Streaming

    Here’s one for people that also play on Xbox One. Now, you can stream games from your Xbox One to a Windows 10 PC, laptop, or tablet anywhere in your home.** Best of all, with support for the Xbox controller1 built right in to Windows 10, you’ll get a consistent gameplay experience no matter what device you’re playing on. You’ll even be able to stream your backwards compatible Xbox 360 games from your Xbox One!

    Next week is a big one for gamers. Thanks to Windows 10, you’ll be getting more options, more control, and more general gaming awesomeness than ever before. We’ll see you on Xbox Live, and good luck developing your epic gaming legacy!

    **Broadband internet required for some features (ISP fees apply). Xbox Live features only available with supported games in Xbox Live-supported countries, see xbox.com/live/countries. Limited number of games available in 2015 that support cross-device play; additional games to follow.

    I am sure the fifteen people with Xbox One and the ten people with Windows Phone will love this.

    This will be interesting how this in fact plays out. The word free is far subjective, but who knows with Microsoft completely changing its business processes.

    I am one of those people that can't play high intensity graphics games so I don't have a gaming system. I have eye problems.

    Well, as a gamer I couldn't get my games to detect DirectX 12 or any DirectX, I ended up installing an old standalone update MS put out years ago.

    Yes, not only would the game version be inferior, but its game-play & performance would also be inferior since the much more powerful PC would be reduced to the mere display device while the inferior xBone would be doing the grunt work...

    Better: It's backwards, actually--should be streaming from the PC to the xBone as the display device...

    Best: Leave off the xBone completely... (I hear they make stunning planters and attractive bird feeders)...

    3 words for me: Red Dead Redemption

    Undead Nightmare is still one of my favourite games ever, why RDR or RDR:UN were never ported to PC is beyond me. Amazing games.

    It's be cheaper to just play direct to the TV and cut the XBox out.
