As game releases start to come out and we get closer to E3 2021, the gaming news landscape is starting to get busier.
Below, we've got all of the Xbox news you need for April 29, where you can buy an Xbox console today, and what games are releasing.
Halo Infinite PC Update & Crossplay
The big Xbox news for today centres around Halo Infinite. In a breakdown of Microsoft's changing approach to PC gaming, the publisher talked about Halo Infinite and how it'll work on the system.
They wanted the next game in the long-running series to be excellent on PC. They say in the blog post that they want to ensure that Infinite is:
"A premier PC experience, including highly desired features such as support for ultrawide and super ultrawide screens, triple keybinds, a wide variety of advanced graphics options and more. We want to make sure that Halo is serving the PC community."
They also go on to confirm that Halo Infinite will support both crossplay and cross-progression when it launches. They say:
"We’re excited to announce Halo Infinite will support multiplayer cross-play and cross-progression when it releases later this year. That means if you’re playing on PC, you can play with your friends on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S."
