17 ID@Xbox games are coming to Windows 10 devices

Microsoft has announced that 17 games that are being developed as part of the Xbox One's ID@Xbox program will also be released for Windows 10 devices as well,

Microsoft has also released a video that shows several ID@Xbox game developers stating how easy it was to port their Xbox One games so that they will work with Windows 10. Microsoft has already stated that purchasing a Windows 10 game once will support cross-buy across all devices that use the OS, including the Xbox One.

Here's a look at Microsoft's current list of ID@Xbox games that are due for release for Windows 10:

  • IDARB (Other Ocean): In its developer's own words, #IDARB is "a chaotic 8-player eSport jumping jetpack future arena ball game." That's about as accurate a description as any we've heard. #IDARB will feature cross-play with the Xbox One version of the game.
  • Ashen (Aurora44): In this third-person action-role-playing game, you are a lone wanderer in a sunless land.
  • Bierzerkers (Shield Break Studios): It's a team-based, multiplayer combat game set in the Viking afterlife. Prepare for battle!
  • Cuphead (Studio MDHR): A run-and-gun adventure, with plenty of 1930s style to it.
  • Divinity: Original Sin (Larian Studios): One of the most critically acclaimed role-playing games of 2014 arrives on Windows 10 PCs. Hooray!
  • Dungeons & Dragons: Sword Coast Legends (n-Space/Digital Extremes): Four players can participate in a campaign managed by a live, human Dungeon Master on a fifth PC, in real-time. Now this is D&D.
  • Game 4 (The Behemoth): The Behemoth brings their inimitable style to turn-based strategy! Game 4 will feature cross-play with the Xbox One version of the game.
  • Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (Asteroid Base): Jump in your neon battleship and explore the galaxy in this frantic co-op action game.
  • Pillars of Eternity (Obsidian Entertainment/Paradox Interactive): It's a classic RPG inspired by the likes of Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale – and that's pretty much all we need to hear to be excited about this one.
  • Pinball FX2 (Zen Studios): It's the most powerful virtual pinball platform in existence – and if you've never played Pinball FX2, there's never been a better time to jump on board!
  • Shovel Knight (Yacht Club Games): Steel thy shovel! The amazing retro sidescrolling adventure comes to Windows 10 PCs, with special guest stars courtesy of Rare, The Battletoads!
  • Siegecraft Commander (Blowfish Studios): Sharp mechanics and positional tactics combine to form one of the coolest strategic games we've ever seen. Siegecraft will feature cross play with the Xbox One version of the game!
  • Super Dungeon Bros (React! Games/Wired Productions): A multiplayer dungeon-crawling extravaganza with a rock music theme. Get your bros together and get ready to rock out! SDB will feature cross play with the Xbox One version of the game.
  • SWORDY (Frogshark): In this multiplayer physics brawler, you will hit your friends until they explode. You really have to see this one to wrap your head around this craziness.
  • The Long Dark (Hinterland Games): The lights have gone out, and they're not coming back. This survival simulation gives you a front seat to the end of the world.
  • This War of Mine (11 Bit Studios): In war, not everyone is a soldier – and in this unique tale, you play as a group of ordinary citizens who are just trying to survive.
  • Wasteland 2 (inXile Entertainment): The sequel to one of the most beloved post-apocalyptic RPGs ever made is coming to Windows 10!
