What you need to know
- Deep Rock Galactic is an exciting and unique co-op game that combines procedurally generated environments with intense combat.
- It recently exited Xbox Game Preview and fully launched for Xbox and PC.
- Now, Deep Rock Galactic is testing cross-play and Xbox Play Anywhere support through the Xbox Insiders program.
- Anyone can sign up to test the insider version of the game, and playing between Xbox and PC devices.
Just a few months after Deep Rock Galactic made its eventful exit from Xbox Game Preview and officially launched with version 1.0, Ghost Ship Games is now testing cross-play and Xbox Play Anywhere support with the Xbox Insiders program. These features would allow players to buy the game once and play it on both Xbox and PC devices, as well as play with their friends on either platform.
Deep Rock Galactic launched into the Xbox Game Preview program, and was originally conceptualized under a now-shuttered Microsoft studio, so it's no surprise that the game is seeking to support as many of Microsoft's gamer-centric features as possible. All players have to do to try out these new features is to sign into the Xbox Insider Hub and join the Deep Rock Galactic insider program. You'll be able to install Deep Rock Galactic Insider, and these new features should be active.
It's great to see more games add support for these features post-launch, and hopefully it won't take long before every Deep Rock Galactic player can enjoy cross-play and Xbox Play Anywhere in an official release. If you're interested, you can find more information at Xbox Wire.

Microsoft’s ‘Project Latte’ aims to bring Android apps to Windows 10
Microsoft is working on a software solution that would allow app developers to bring their Android apps to Windows 10 with little to no code changes by packaging them as an MSIX and allowing developers to submit them to the Microsoft Store. The project is codenamed 'Latte' and I'm told it could show up as soon as next year.
