"As with all Xbox Game Studios titles, it'll be available in[...]" Either you died while writing it, or my internet died reading it....
I think it's 'Xbox Game Pass at launch'.
Yes! I meet the minimum specs. If I upgrade my desktop's processor I can reach the recommended specs.
How can people read that blurry chart on the WC app?
We can't properly see any image... Just like can't we open 80% of the articles links... It's a shame...
I can see it just fine on the app?
Can't pinch to zoom in the app. I have to open the article on my phone browser and then do it.
I can't see it in the Android app either.
Glad the app performs isn't just me lol
Hope its made available on xCloud
This would be great. It's not a game that needs good latency
What about VR?
They said they're considering it for an update, but it won't be at launch
