Sounded like another garbage show. Xbox backing away from b/c, didn't reveal the Washburn thing, X1 enhancements for a game no one should care about anymore. And don't dare ask about Crackdown. The game MS can't seem to find the right time to tell everyone is cancelled.

can't believe they are finally putting Dayz on Xbox after all these years.

its a stinker folks, would advise against spending any money on it.

Nice. I already have The Master Chief Collection but that’s definitely a really good addition for Game Pass. The Xbox One X update is really cool as well.

The MCC news made my day, this is one of the finest gaming packages in existence, I cannot wait to replay it on the X!

Also coming to Early Preview is the highly acclaimed "Hunt Showdown", heard great things about this one from the PC gamers!

i hope it doesn't. Everyone on this forum reiterates every single day how xbox has no games but then on the other hand you all want them to put everyone of their games on PC so you can claim "xbox has no games"

No. It's already on the PC in Early Access form.

It's been the place where Bohemia Interactive has been rebuilding their engine. The original concept never could be properly executed on the ArmA 2 or 3 engine so they decided to use the project as the living test ground for their reworked engine.

Of course this means DayZ has been in development forever with no end in real sight.

LOL! I don't care if you get Crackdown 3 or not, I'm just having my doubts that it's gonna make it.

dayz is better than any battle royale game out there and beyond, at least imo. This is going to be great but of course I'm not a preview member, I hope I can download it anyway.

Does that mean you can get it for Windows or just on Xbox? Would be cool with a MCC PC version.

Yeah, probably. I want it mostly to play the first Halo's multiplayer. Played it a lot on PC back in the day, would be fun to relive it.

I want MCC on PC. I still own MCC on Xbox, even though I gave my Xbox to a buddy. Just in case I ever buy an X just to play it.

Excited for MCC getting an XB1X update, and the Game Pass addition will be a good reason to revisit it as well as a close friend of mine doesn't have the MCC but has Game Pass and will totally play through all the campaigns with me when it's available on Game Pass.
