Windows 10 April’s Update To Support Xbox One Games

Microsoft has confirmed that April’s update of Windows 10 will allow user to run Xbox One games natively without developers having to write a single line of code.

This is a pretty big deal as Microsoft can have a better Store and will be easier for players to buy content for both the PC and Xbox One.

It therefore looks like you’re able to download the Xbox One version of the game, rather than a PC port. When the game is downloaded, it appears in the .xvc file format, which is an Xbox One file format, and this file can be installed using the updated PowerShell application in Windows 10 April 2019 Update.

Running the file pops up a legacy DirectX installation window. The latest build of the Windows 10 April 2019 Update also adds a new Gaming Service app (Microsoft.GamingServices) which installs two drivers xvdd.sys = XVD Disk Driver (Microsoft Gaming Filesystem Driver) gameflt.sys = Gaming Filter (Microsoft Gaming Install Filter Driver).

Users who tries the Windows 10 update will also receive a free version of State of Decay as Thurrot explains

You choose where to make your stand, designing and fortifying your home base, performing daring raids for food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors with unique talents.
