Microsoft has revealed the first set of games that will debut alongside the Xbox app for Windows 8 later this year. Gameloft, Glu Mobile, Halfbrick Studios, Microsoft Studios, Miniclip, Rovio and ZeptoLab will all have games launching for the app on October 26 with more being added to the mix throughout the holiday season and beyond.
Redmond announced earlier this year that Windows 8 would ship with an integrated app that will allow users to access select Xbox 360 content from a Windows-based desktop, notebook or tablet. Gamers will be able to take advantage of console features they might already be familiar with like achievements and leaderboards.
Specific games include hits like Angry Birds, Big Buck Hunter Pro, Cut the Rope and Fruit Ninja in addition to 29 titles from Microsoft Studios. We are told that some titles will be exclusive to the app. Sorry, no serious franchises like Forza, Gears of War or Halo just yet but who knows what the future might hold. A complete list of games can be found below.
