Microsoft is aiming to release its first console game for the Xbox One next month, but there are plenty of reasons why gamers may want to wait until next month.
The new console’s next big feature, which will enable games to be built from the ground up for Windows 10, is expected to be released later this month, with the game code expected to arrive via a download via a new Xbox app.
In order to install the game you’ll need to sign into your Xbox Live account, but the game won’t launch until later this year.
That means the first game developers to try to use the new Xbox hardware and the new Windows 10 version of the software should be working from a fresh copy of the Windows 10 Creators Update.
“This will be the first time the Xbox will come with a fully fledged Windows 10 game code, and we are really excited to see the first steps taken by developers to take advantage of the new hardware,” Microsoft’s Xbox Live Product Marketing Manager Dan DeBartolo told Ars.
“As you can imagine, there will be a lot of opportunity for developers to experiment with the new features and APIs.”
Microsoft is planning to roll out new features for developers in the Creators update, including the ability to run games from the Windows Store on the Xbox console.
So, there’s going to be a whole new way for developers and game publishers to build their games.
“DeBartolos comments are backed up by Xbox Live Producer Matt Loh, who told Ars the Xbox team will continue to work on the new software until sometime in late October.”
The Creators’ update, which is due out later this fall, includes new features such as a new gamepad control scheme and the ability for users to customize gamepad settings. “
We will continue working on the code, but we will also continue to deliver a lot more features, such as improved console-level support for gamepads and improved online multiplayer.”
The Creators’ update, which is due out later this fall, includes new features such as a new gamepad control scheme and the ability for users to customize gamepad settings.
The Xbox team has also improved the Xbox Dashboard and the gamepad’s touchpad controls, and improved the way gamepad-based controls work across multiple platforms.
In addition, the Creaters update will allow for more flexible gamepad and touchpad inputs, which should make gamepad input and gamepad controls easier to use on multiple platforms and platforms.
“The Xbox Dashboards and gamepals have always been one of our most popular features, but now that we’ve got the new controls and more input options for users, we’re really excited about all the ways we can take advantage,” Lof said.
“There are a lot changes coming for the Windows console, so there are going to really be some changes for game developers as well.”
DeLoh said that the Xbox Team is focused on delivering the best experience possible for developers on the next generation of Xbox hardware.
“We have a lot to look forward to, and that’s really where we are focused, working with Microsoft to ensure that every Xbox gamer gets the best possible experience,” he said.
Microsoft will also be announcing more details about the Xbox Live Developer Program in the coming months, including how to access developer resources and the Xbox developer portal for developers.
Microsoft will be releasing a new Windows developer dashboard and developer portal in early December, but developers will need to get a developer license to publish games using the new platform.
Microsoft is also working on a new tool for developers that will allow them to share code and build games with other developers.
