Looking to get your Xbox fix on your Windows 10 PC? These are the games to get.
Updated April 2017 with the addition of Halo Wars 2 and Resident Evil 7 to the top 10.
1. Gears of War 4
Simply put, Gears of War 4 is a masterpiece. Picking up after the events of the original saga, Gears of War 4 starts a new story filling the boots of J.D. Fenix, son of the legendary protagonist Marcus Fenix.
With a stunning campaign, comprehensive multiplayer mode and the tremendous Horde 3.0, Gears of War 4 is the best exclusive available on Xbox right now, and with Play Anywhere you can switch seamlessly between PC and console.
2. Forza Horizon 3
Forza Horizon 3 is the best first-party racer Microsoft has ever produced. Set in Australia, Horizon is the open world sibling to Forza Motorsport, while sharing the same game engine and stunning good looks.
Forza Horizon 3 has a comprehensive single-player mode, a co-op career and a bunch of action to be had online. It looks and plays magnificently and is worthy of anyone's time. And if you have the power, on Windows 10 you can crank it up to a jaw dropping 4K resolution and see Forza Horizon like it's never been seen before.
3. Rise of the Tomb Raider
Lara Croft's latest adventure brings her to Windows 10 as a full Xbox title. Heading first to Siberia, this is a grittier Lara than we're used to of old as she tries to get to Trinity, the secret of immortality.
It's classic Tomb Raider gameplay, though, with exploration, puzzle, survival and a return to raiding tombs. It looks great, it plays wonderfully and it's a must have for fans and newcomers alike.
4. Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition
This is easily one of the most spectacular looking games you've ever seen. A platformer that tells a tale of love, sacrifice and hope, the hand-drawn artwork and exsquisite soundtrack combines for one of the most atmospheric games you'll find on any platform.
The definitive edition arrived with new areas to explore, new abilities to use and more story on the main character, Naru's past. There's absolutely no reason not to play this game.
5. Dead Rising 4
Big open world? Check. Thousands of brain hungry zombies? Check. Insane weapons? Check. This right here is Dead Rising 4, the only game for you if serious Zombie hunting is your thing.
Dead Rising 4 marks the return of Frank West, the oh-so-brave photojournalist who also doubles up as an ace undead-slayer. The ridiculous weapon concoctions are still here in spades, and just for good measure you can even take a selfie before you start hacking.
6. Killer Instinct
Killer Instinct was the first cross-buy-supporting title between Xbox One and Windows 10, but with the Definitive Edition it went full Play Anywhere. Killer Instinct is Microsoft's first-party brawler, reborn from the Rare game of old with a new-generation overhaul.
Everything you expect to find in a beat-em-up is here: tons of characters, a bajillion combo moves, a single player story mode and the chance to go online and kick the bottoms of players around the world. Killer Instinct doesn't get the hype that Street Fighter does, but it's arguably a better game. Give it a try!
7. Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
This isn't Resident Evil like you remember, far from it. Beyond the jump to first-person perspective, the latest installment in the long-running franchise is a game that'll make you need a spare pair of pants on standby.
Besides the jump scares, what you'll actually find is a slick shooter with a well-designed environment and fairly impressive graphics. It isn't a Play Anywhere title, which is a little disappointing, but you get the full Xbox Live treatment by getting it from the Windows Store.
8. Halo Wars 2
This might just be one of the best titles to bear the Halo name, despite moving away from FPS and into the strategy arena. Halo Wars 2 is jam packed with an epic storyline, sharp visuals and plenty of game modes to keep newcomers and old hands happy.
As a Play Anywhere title you can move between console and PC, but let's face facts. You're playing Halo Wars 2 you're going to be better on the PC. Sometimes a mouse and keyboard is just, well, better.
9. Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
See where it all began in the completely remastered edition of the first Gears of War game, made famous on the Xbox 360. The Ultimate Edition re-release sees current generation graphics, up to 4K resolution and the most fluid multiplayer yet.
It's not quite on par with Gears of War 4, but this is a bonafide classic brought back to life for a whole new generation to enjoy. Step into the boots of Marcus Fenix as he takes the fight to the Locust horde.
10. Quantum Break
Remedy's latest action thriller tells a tale of manipulating time, and the unfortunate circumstances of doing so. It's part game, part live-action TV show, and it's packing a AAA cast which includes Shawn Ashmore playing the lead role of Jack Joyce.
If story driven games are your thing, then Quantum Break is a no brainer. It's quite simply unique in its look, its feel and its tale, and will grip you from the very moment you start playing all the way to the end.
