    Or at least some games anyway.

    Not sure how many of you follow the tech news or are involved in the Windows Insider programme, but

    this story
    may be of interesting to you anyway.

    Windows Insider is like Xbox Insider, it allows you to test newer versions of the Operating System - in this case, Windows 10 - on your computer. The interesting part of this latest insider update is the opportunity for some insiders to try a free version
    of State of Decay.

    Okay, so it's the PC version, big deal, right? Well, that's the interesting part. Is it the PC version, or is the Xbox version? There is already a PC version of the game on the Windows Store, this 'free' version however apparently doesn't download from
    the Windows Store server, It downloads from assets1.xboxlive.com instead. That's not where Microsoft puts its Windows 10 games.

    Also, when I installed the game, I had to install what I can only assume is a special version of DirectX, you never have to install DirectX after downloading a Windows 10 game, very odd.

    Also Microsoft is keen to know from Insiders how well it runs.

    Frame rate seemed to fine, most of the time. Bear in mind I'm running on the follow specs though.

    Intel i7 8700

    16GB

    GTX 1070 8GB

    Windows 10 Evaluation build 18346.1

    That is great news! It would mean a 100% integration between Xbox and Windows. It would be the perfect version of Xbox Play Anywhere , as it would not need a game to be released also on pc to be playable as any Xbox game would be right away available on
    PC. I'm looking forward to hear more about that on E3!

    Hi!

    Do you mean Xbox Anywhere? Because thats already available.
    No, this isn't Xbox Anywhere. This may be an extension to this programme. It may have something to do with Microsoft's plans to add more games to the Gamepass that can also be played on PC.

    Like I said earlier, my State of Decay game didn't launch like a normal Windows 10 game from the Windows Store, and it required a special version of DirectX to be installed.
