Microsoft announces the first mobile game with Xbox Live support
Cross-platform gaming is becoming a growing trend. Mainstream titles like Apex Legends, Fortnite, and PUGB have pushed its development further until the industry leaders took notice.
Microsoft already revealed they created an Xbox Live Software Developer Kit (SDK) for mobile in March.
Now, Microsoft’s Xbox Live, their central online service, is receiving Android and iOS titles by famous mobile developers Gameloft. Gameloft is the studio behind the Dungeon Hunter Saga.
Gameloft is preparing games with Xbox Live support
The video-game studio announced some of their flagship titles are receiving Xbox Live integration. The games are:
- Asphalt 9: Legends
- Asphalt 8: Airborne
- Dragon Mania Legends
These three games are free on the Play Store and the App Store. However, Gameloft is known for substantial pay-to-win features.
Microsoft’s SDK gives developers the ability to pick Xbox Live features so they can incorporate into their games.
Gameloft explains their mobile games will give players the ability to unlock Xbox achievements, use their Xbox friends lists to chat and play together, check Xbox leaderboards, and more.
As for PC, we can’t still be sure about what will happen as the competition between the Epic Store and Valve’s Steam is ongoing.
