Phil Spencer discusses Halo on PC, mouse and keyboard support and more

Microsoft's annual developer conference revealed reams of new features and services for the engineers building Windows 10 apps this week, but there were plenty of announcements for Xbox One owners as well. Xbox head Phil Spencer took the stage at Build 2016 for the first time, and he sat down with Game Informer and others to discuss a broad range of topics.

On the subject of Xbox One games hitting PC, Phil Spencer said that he had no plans to tell Microsoft Studios devs to target both platforms, and it would depend on whether the games made sense on either platform:

"Our intent is where genres and creative makes sense in both spaces, that we'll put the game in both spaces, and you see us doing that already. But I don't want to make it some kind of artificial mandate because I think we end up with Franken-game that really wasn't meant for a certain platform because some suit said, "Hey, everything's got to run on both platforms," you end up with something people don't want. You should expect it when it looks like a game belongs on both platforms, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a mandate for the studio."

Phil went on to apply that logic to Halo 5, stating that the game was designed from the ground up for console play, implying that Halo on PC would have to be designed with that platform in mind:

"Halo 5 was shipped as a console game, if we're going to [bring Halo to PC] moving forward then we're going to plan on both platforms. In terms of Halo FPS on PC, I think there is a ton of opportunity for us right now, but I don't want to get in a world where we're looking back. It doesn't mean there is nothing there that would never end up on PC, but I would much rather look forward."

On the matter of mouse and keyboard support, Phil Spencer put concerns about competitive cross-play to rest, emphasizing that he'll never force someone who is using a controller to compete against someone using mouse and keyboard:

"I want to be clear on this one – I will never force someone in our games, who is playing with controller or mouse and keyboard, to play against somebody with a different control scheme. Mouse and keyboard rotation speed is faster than controller."

He went on to say that mouse and keyboard support, and cross-platform play would be an option only where it made sense, such as co-operative play:

"If you and I are playing a co-op game together […] there's no reason you and I can't go through a [Destiny] Strike, for example, you on mouse and keyboard, me on controller playing together, and we should be able to talk to each other. [...] This is about putting tools in the hands of smart creators to make decisions on when it makes sense and when it doesn't make sense."

Spencer then went on to discuss Cortana integration, known to be coming this summer with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (in addition to background music). "Hey, Cortana" will replace the "Xbox" voice command Kinect owners use today. Phil Spencer also noted that by plugging the Xbox One into Cortana, the console will gain all of Cortana's current conversational abilities, including weather reports and so on. Cortana will also be able to provide help inside games by showing GameDVR clips from the areas you're stuck. It could be a huge feature for punishing games like the upcoming Dark Souls 3.

"The semantic understanding of whether what's happening on Live… "Hey Cortana, is Mike online right now?" It goes through and considers, "He probably means, Mike Ybarra? Yes. What's he playing right now? Okay. Join his party." My ability to go back and forth with Cortana and understand both the context implied, and we've looked at games with things like, "Hey Cortana, how do I get through this level?" We know what game you're playing. We know what character you are. We know where you are in the game from Achievements and the mapping of what's happening in the frame, so we're actually going to able to say, bring up all the game DVR clips of the area where you are and say, "Here's how other people have completed the level you're on."

Phil Spencer also discussed how Tim Sweeney's recent Universal Windows Platform fears forced them to place a heavy emphasis on openness in their speeches. He also explained Xbox Ones as dev kits, noting that he expects the platform to be used more for apps than games at this point, as the best tools for game development still come via the dedicated Xbox One dev kits, rather than the UWP dev mode. He did, however, state that we could see UWP games too, sooner rather than later.

Phil Spencer also discussed some bits and pieces about t-shirt choices, and Killer Instinct in the full interview. Check it out on GameInformer.

Mass Effect: Andromeda tech demos leaked?

In a surprise evening Twitter leak, Mass Effect Andromeda tech demos appeared on YouTube, courtesy of TakarGaming. The video seems to show a reel of demonstrations for the upcoming space epic Mass Effect Andromeda, complete with some special effects tech, jet pack gameplay, and an early look at the game's UI.

While leaks of this nature are often dubious (particularly when posted on April 1st), serial leaker shinobi602 added some legitimacy to the video, calling it early portfolio reel footage. Either way, expect more information at E3 2016!

The Division's raid-like Incursions outlined

The Division - Incursions

Ubisoft Massive is plowing ahead with Tom Clancy's The Division, describing the first of two free content updates that'll bring end-game raids and tons of other new content.

The first Incursion is called Falcon Lost and takes place in an underground water treatment facility that the fascist Last Man Battalion uses as a base. Players will need to achieve a gear score giving them a level 31's strength equivalent to attack the Incursions hard mode. Challenge mode, naturally, will require even higher level gear.

"An Incursion is a PvE end-game activity for a group of four players at max level. Incursions require preparation and coordination as they are extremely challenging. The first incursion will be available in the first free update. More Incursions are in development."

Falcon Lost will ask players to play more strategically, utilizing voice communication and co-ordination to see victory. Incursions have no checkpoints, meaning that if the party wipes you need to start over. There are no limitations on the number of times you can replay an Incursion, meaning you can claim new loot on repeated runs. It should provide a PVE alternative for those who don't enjoy the frenetic nature of the PVP Dark Zone, which has become a war zone following a recent patch to incentivise conflict.

New daily quests and side objectives will also be added, and with the new gear scoring system, players will be able to break the game's hard level 30 cap and earn new talents and bonuses in the process. Patch 1.1 will also add new gear sets, which will provide additional bonuses.

The Dark Zone will also pick up new supply drops that aren't contaminated, meaning that once they've been looted, they can't be stolen by players who kill you. Players will also be able to trade items by dropping them for others to retrieve.

Patch 1.2, titled Conflict, will arrive sometime after this month's Incursions, adding new PVP features and another raid. After that, you'll need to pick up The Division's season pass or buy future updates separately as DLCs, which should help fund the game's continued support.

  • Best giveaway
  • I agree quantum is the game I'm waiting to try :)
  • Yes! Nice!
  • Looking forward in this giveaway. I buyed my xbox one less than one month ago, so i need games. And this game make my hype go to stratosphere with it's live action sequences :D Posted on Windows Central App for Windows 10 Mobile
  • Make sure you have Xbox liveGold.  2 (or 4) games free each month.
  • I played the beta and would love to win a copy.
  • Nice recap. Thanks!
  • Im excited about the division update

  • I'm excited for the anniversary update for xbox one this summer.
  • Just got an Xbox, it'd be the best thing in the world to snab this giveaway :D fingers crossed, good luck to us all!
  • Last week was a great week for Xbox and Windows 10. We hope for more Quantum exciting times ahead with Particle effects from Microsoft. On the other hand, QB has already made me excited for this week ESPECIALLY after @JezCorden's AMAZING, TOP NOTCH and DETAILED Review and can't wait to get my tiny gamer fingers on a copy....not forgetting it also captures the science geekness in me; I know I'm gonna learn a lot from this game after playing. Just can't wait...and Tuesday I know for sure is gonna be a LOOOOOOOOOOONNNG Day at work. Wish I could meet Jack Joyce or Paul, fast travel, play the game and come back to relax and watch all the hype and excitements in people.
  • Quantum Break, nice!
  • Lots of really positive news. Windows 10 update for Xbox will have some really good and requested features. Hopefully other improvements not yet detailed too. Expanded app store will be a huge thing I hope! Should bring apps like BBC iPlayer into the store for console and Windows 10 because it makes more sense to the corporation to do so now.
  • Quntum Break looks amazing need that game
  • It remind me TimeShift game of Sierra somehow. I hope can win this time.
  • Quantum break looks like a winner. All together great time to be an Xbox one owner.
  • Hmmm... Mouse and keyboard could provide the road to more MMORPGs.
  • I'm playing Ac Unity, Rocket League and I'm finished with The Wolf Among Us. I will get The Division in next week. I'm very curious about E3 this year. Keyboard & mouse don't interest me I play with my elite controller The best giveaway! Looking forward QB so baaaad! Like to win it.
  • Looking forward to E3 too! However, I would like mouse and keyboard fo a fame like Halo Wars or Command and Conquer.
  • Yes, you right!
  • preordered yesterday but nice gift for someone
  • Not too keen about non contaminated items in the dark zone. :|
  • I'm not sure why you say that... these are 'Supply Drops' that just get dropped randomly... then the task is to get there, fight off the gangs of NPCs trying to take possession of it and try to beat other squads from getting it first. Once gotten the items are clean as they have just come from outside the DZ. ​Nothing wrong with that, and if you would add that these would have to be extracted that would just be really messy, real quick - maybe not to take the supplies from the NPCs but an all out mess with other players. I think the formula as it stands sounds good, with enough crazies thrown in.  
  • Quantum break..... Wish to have it free ☺
  • I'd love to win a copy of quantum break! Game looks awesome!
  • oooooh, so nice ! ave Widowscentral, ave Remedy and all of MS!
  • Quantum break! Can't wait! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Quantum break, heard a lot of good things. Would love a copy. Wanna see it for myself, thanks!
  • I'm very excited to play on my Surface at work!
  • I'd be super chuffed if I won a copy of Quantum Break, the game look's tremendously fun.
  • Quantum Break would be an awesome addition to my Xbox collection! :D
  • Great giveaway! I hope QB will run fine on PC.
  • Want to try Quantum Break...
  • Love mass effect and can't wait for the division DLC.  Also just commenting to hopefully win that game
  • Must. Play. Quantum Break.
  • <p>Mass effect looks promising</p>
  • Me win wanna quantum break. ??? Yes ? No ?
  • nice
  • With 4k tvs at really reasonable proces, barely even 1080p support for games on xbox one, and lots of good games coming to windows 10, does it make sense to ditch xbonx one and just set up a windows 10 pc with a good video card for the living room?
  • Seiki's a nice starter 4k tv till the newer standard TVs fall in price. But like most TVs they lack dp
  • That is true, but for 4k TVs, HDMI 2.0 is the 4k connectivity standard. The trick would be to get a computer that ahs HDMI 2.0 so that it can output 4k @ 60 hz.
  • Can anyone tell me what advantages there might be of getting Quantum Break through Xbox Store (which gives access to PC download as well as Xbox digital download) other than giving the PC code to a friend?
  • Once you play quantum break once can you skip the live actin portions? Send like you need to set aside a large portion of time to play the game.
  • So background music this summer? Can't be soon enough.
  • I've installed 10 on multiple systems and multiple platforms as well as my personal computer. I have had a number of issues across the board... But, I still like it! I Skipped 8 and loved 7, but being a techie I had to get in on 10 so I would know what my clients were talkinbg about!! Anywho. love this Giveaway and would love to win it too! Thanks for all that you do.
  • Arg, I'm on the fence with Quantum Break! But a free copy would help sway the decision. ;)
  • Good giveaway! Yay! Posted via the Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Mouse and keyboard support is a nice feature, maybe I should place my Xbox at my desk lol PS: Quantum Break looks nice, let me get it!
  • I am excited joining the preview program for xbox one after the Anniversary upgrade. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • QB almost, kind of reminds me of Blinx.
  • Must. Get. My. Hands. On. Quantum. Breakkkk!
  • Awesome news
  • Nice news week, looking forward to mouse/keyboard support on XOne and other features. Hoping for some ReCore gameplay at E3, too!
  • they really are putting thought into how cortana functions Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • not long to wait for quantum break now!!
  • Hopefully the incursions work well. I'm not a huge fan of the DZ at lvl 30, way too many rogues with much better gear than me. It makes any attempt at getting good drops there frustrating.
  • Quantum Break ! Best giveaway
  • Quantum Break looks great, I just hope it isn't too much style over substance.
  • I appreciate the continued support of games after launch. Really I do. I'm not one of those people who ever complain about sequelitis, too much DLC, etc. Because if I really like a game, generally, I just want more and those are two ways I can get more. I don't want them to change the formula in a sequel. That being said, I don't want $100+ of cosmetic weapon skins, etc. like they do for the Gears of War games. Some cosmetic DLC is fine, especially bundled at no additional cost with meaningful DLC like expansions, quests, armor/gear packs, etc. I'm not normally a MP gamer, so I don't normally buy map packs and other MP focused DLC. But beyond that, I hate it when MP DLC is bundled with SP DLC like several of the 360 Assassin's Creed games. I like Season Passes & bundles, but don't force me to buy one type of content I don't want just to get the type I do want. Sell 3 differnt bundles, A SP-focused bundle, a MP focused bundle, and a complete bundle. Because I WILL vote with my wallet and avoid bundles that force me to spend extra for MP content I don't want just to save a few $ vs. buying all the SP content piecemeal. But I digress. This is about The Division addons & Season Pass DLC. Incursions sounds great, but why does it have to be specifically built for 4-players? I know the AI scales for party size already, so why not do the same for Incursions and the rest of the end-game DLC? I only have 1 friend I play co-op with. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Whether it's your best-friend, significant other, husband/wife, sibling, son/daughter, etc., most people have 1 person they game with most often, even if they have a large stable of friends to play with. Making end-game content like raids that require teamwork shouldn't automatically require 4-players. Teamwork, by definition, requires at least 2 individuals working as a team. If I'm wrong, the "buddy-cop' genre must have been my imagination, and sidekicks are also a figment of my imagination. Sure, going in with only 2-players instead of 4 limits the amount of coordination you can get with the skills/abilities, but it inherently increases the amount of actual teamwork required because you have to make up for those gaps in tech/skills with well synchronized tactics. When I put it that way it boggles my mind why devs focus so much on 4-player or more content. I think they'd revel in seeing their skills & tactics systems put to the test in such a way.
  • Quantum Break looks great. Hope I win
  • Nice
  • Quantum Break looks amazing! I'd love to win
  • I never won anything in this giveaways :(( i hope some day i'll win something...
  • Quantum Break, yes please!
  • I'm loving the division right now its a pretty good game. Can't wait for the new patch. Hope to win quantum break but I have the worst luck
  • Good luck guys!
  • Quantum Break looks amazing. I've avoided the reviews for fear of spoilers. I'll buy anything from the makers of Alan Wake.
  • Quantum Break looks awesome, can't wait to actually play it.
  • Really looking forward to mouse and keyboard support for Xbox, hopefully I'll be able to play Halo Wars 2 like that.
  • R.B.I. 16 was better than I expected. For $20, it's an OK game. XB1 definitely needs a sim baseball experience, though. Also, I'm pleased with how Phil Spencer is approaching the platform. Co-op is a perfect example of where mixing input works, so I don't mind that. Hearing that they won't mix them for multiplayer is really nice, too. Now, just have to hope we don't have PC users hacking their way around those multiplayer input restrictions.
  • Man I really wanna win this giveaway! I just cannot afford quantum break right now, but it looks so cool. XD
  • It's your lucky day! You won!
  • Oh mannn!!! Really? That's amazing! What happens now?
  • I would love to get this Quantum Break code. Trust me Ive already prordered it :) I just want someone to experience this platform seller. Cos I know people buying Xbox for this. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android

  • I break for quantums.
  • Yeah! I really want to play this game. ^^

  • Gimme gimme. Gimme more. -Britney spears.
  • Yeah, Quantum Break, nice!
  • I would love to play Quantum Break, please let it be me!
  • Gimme a Break!
  • Cortana coming to Xbox One is cool and all, but I am not a fan of "Hey, Cortana" replacing "Xbox" for voice commands. "Xbox, pause" = 3 syllables. "Hey, Cortana, pause" = 5 syllables.
  • Mmm, gimme dat Quantum Break.
  • Both The Division & Quantum Break are games I want to buy. And now that Dead Space and Left For Dead 2 are available for BC, it looks like I have a lot of games to play.
  • Great giveaway!! Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Thanks for the news roundup
  • I've been looking forward to this game since it was announced. But im confused about the whole live action thing. Is it a TV series to watch before, during or after playing the game? Or is it part of the game? So need this game. Hope I win a copy lol
  • And the giveaway goes to ...

  • Quantum Break looks amazing. Good luck to all,but this game is mine haha jk, jk fellas!
  • Quantum Breaks looks beautiful!

  • Oh I would love myself quantum break, been so long that I've played any game with interest. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Quantum break seriously looks like Microsoft's version of "Infamous" for PS4. What I mean is, it shows a lot of promise for furthering the Microsoft brand along with the neat incorporation of a live action show to accompany it. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Would love a copy of Quantum Break, that would be awesome!
  • I can't for the summer update for Xbox One!!!!!
  • Quantum Break looks like a cool game with some creative ideas on how it works.
  • Omg! Will love to win Quantum Break!
  • OMG Quantum Break looks like a hell of a game. Looking forward playing it on my XO.
  • My Xbox One just keeps getting better and better with these games and improvements in the platform. While it was a logical choice from my 360, I did contemplate going for the PS4 for a brief moment. Very brief.
  • Double release and tv serie, that game looks insane
  • I'm excited about any Mass Effect news.  I am of course disappointed a winter 2016 launch turned into 2017.  Quantum Break would be great on my Xbox One.  It might take me away from The Division, which stopped this season's Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer endevour...  I have all but one weapon, but my Harrier and Talon are at six.  I'd love to have all weapons and those two up at ten at release.  (Xbox)
  • I dont know about Mass Effect the other games never cought my attention, 3 was ok i think the main reason for me is i just never really had the time to play them properly.
  • Hum..QB looks terrific and i'm really glad to see the Division moving forward! Lot's of hours to be spent on gaming XD
  • Yeah, Quantum break, nice!
  • Never tried quantum break but it looks amazing. What an awesome giveaway Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Damn would be amazing to win this game, its far too expensive down here in South Africa, wish i could get The Devision too, that game looks insanely good.
  • Time is power, and I want this ability!
  • Quantum Break looks really nice! I want this game!
  • I would like try such as game on my Xbox one console and Lenovo laptop! ☺ me and my relatives would be happy too!
  • Hope to win!
  • Good to hear Phils put alot of fears to bed. Cortana sounds pretty good too, may have to pick up a kinect in summer n test her out. Sure would be nice to win that copy of Quantum Break
  • Cool
  • Really enjoyed your review for Q.B...The hype train is really moving so I hope it lives up to my expectations. The main actor, Shawn Ashmore, was awesome on the show "The Following" so I'm looking forward to seeing him star in Q.B.
  • Quantum Break. Nice!
  • I would love to win this game it looks incredible! Surface Pro 4
  • For those of you who are xbox rewards members, MicrosoftStore is now selling digital download codes for Quantum Break.  I don't know if it is only for this game, or if they will be selling digital codes in the future, but this means that digital users can finally cash in on the $15 rebate for pre-orders.  This was previously restricted to physical copies, since MicrosoftStore has not been selling digital pre-order codes until now.
  • Woot Quantum Break!!! Gimmie Gimmie!
  • The tech demos from Mass Effect didn't get me as excited as I had hoped they would. Here's to hoping that E3 has something impressive to show us. Short of that, I'd be happy enough with some minor tweaks and graphics reworking to the original trilogy released as one massive game on the XBox One.
  • Nice Recap !!! and an awsome give away !!!
  • I'd love to play Quantum Break!
  • I would love to play this game on my XBone!
  • Exciting stuff going on with Xbox. 
  • i am in
  • Yes, please.
  • Heard a lot of good hngs about this Quantam Break game and would love to get a free copy. 
  • Cool
  • Great giveaway. 
  • Gameplay of quantum break looks amazing! Posted via the Windows Central App for BlackBerry Passport
  • The reviews have been pretty great for Quantum Break and coming from Remedy I expect a pretty amazing story and gaming experience.
  • I just traded in my PS4 & PS3 for an Xbox One. Why? Quantum Break is part of the reason. The others? More first player shooter games on Xbox, I can stream movies that from my Surface Pro 3 to Xbox (if they aren't alreacdy showing in My Collection on Xbox), and I can play games remotely on my Surface Pro 3. None of this can be done on the PS4. In today's connected world what good are better graphics and disk speed if all you can do is play games? 
  • I really, really should get the division, my mate keeps raving about it.
  • Great wrap up. Good luck all.  Already preordered QB and looking forward to playing. 
  • I really, really want this game to become the next thing. After all this time and hype I'd love to see how it worked out but just can't pick up q copy right now. Winning one would be beyond ideal. :)
  • Would love a shot at Quantum Break. Thank you.
