Microsoft details announcements from Xbox Spring Showcase

In San Francisco last week, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer reaffirmed Microsoft’s commitment to bringing the biggest Microsoft Studios franchises to both Xbox One and Windows 10, and revealed some of the games which are on the way to PC specifically.

“At Xbox we believe gamers should be able to play the games they want, with the people they want, on the devices they want,” Spencer said. “Making more of our popular games available for gamers to play on either Xbox One or Windows 10, each powered by Xbox Live, is another important step towards this vision. We are committed to delivering amazing gaming experiences for gamers who play on consoles, PCs or both.”

One of the games announced, as revealed earlier today was Forza Motorsport 6: Apex – Arriving in the Windows Store this spring, Forza Motorsport 6: Apex is a free, curated standalone experience for Windows 10 that provides fans with a tour of what Forza Motorsport 6 has to offer, including Drivatar opponents and Forzavista cars, as well as new ways to play and compete. The experience also takes advantage of DirectX 12, delivering visuals at up to 4K resolution.

Other games on the way for PC include Gears of War: Ultimate Edition for Windows 10, Killer Instinct: Season 3, Minecraft with Oculus Rift support, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition and Quantum Break, in addition to titles such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, which is already released.

New Features in the Windows 10 Xbox App and Xbox One were also discussed, such as:

- Gamerscore Leaderboard in the Achievements section and Hero Stat Leaderboards in Game Hubs
- See Avatars in your Activity Feed if you’ve chosen to replace your gamerpic with your Avatar
