Yeah, the customisability of the Xbox UI has made it a *lot* better now.

Xbox (Beta) App: Performance Updates and Mods

We have a great update to the Xbox (Beta) app on Windows 10, and I’m here to walk you through what’s happening! Some enhancements you won’t be able to see, but will totally notice, and some changes you’ll see and also notice. Updates are funny that way. Let’s jump in.

Let’s start with your feedback! Thank you for all your suggestions, comments, and reports to help us make the experience better for PC gaming. We’ve heard your feedback on download speeds, memory usage, and general app performance, and we’re excited to announce with this update, we’ve implemented some improvements to address this. Not to get too deep into the weeds, but we have rebuilt the Xbox (Beta) app from Electron to React Native, which streamlined the app experience. The app’s design will stay the same, and it will be even easier to download and play your games.

You’ll also notice a significant decrease in memory usage – we are using roughly a third of the memory we had prior to this update. Depending on your region, you should also be seeing improvements in game download speeds already; but we are still early in this journey and will continue to make further improvements.

Next up is mods. We have heard you: You want an easier way to mod your games while using the Xbox (Beta) app. We are excited to share some of the first steps we are taking to improve the mod experience.
The Xbox (Beta) app now has an easy way for you to enable mods for select games where the game developer has chosen to enable them.

This bring-your-own-mod environment allows you to look at mods from different mod distribution sites, download the files that are of interest to you, and enable them on the Xbox (Beta) app.

For those of you interested in modding games in Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta), here are some games that will support mods as of today:

DiRT Rally 2.0
Farming Simulator 17
FTL: Faster Than Light
Into the Breach
MudRunner

Before you enable mods with any of your games though, we strongly encourage you to read through the FAQ.

I don't think Kingdom Hearts is on PC officially so no.

Xbox June 2020 Update Delivers Simplified Digital Library Management and More


Image

Managing Your Digital Games

Today’s game collections are often a mix of games played on a disc, purchased via a digital store, or downloaded with a subscription like Xbox Game Pass. All these great games can make it tough to decide which ones to keep local when you run low on storage space. The June 2020 Update adds overlays to game tiles in My Games & Apps, Home, and Guide to make it easier to tell at-a-glance where you got a game. This release will support games from Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live Gold, and EA Access subscriptions.


Celebrating Your Membership

Members of any Xbox Game Pass membership or Xbox Live Gold will also now see a badge next to their Gamertag on Home and in the Guide, highlighting those memberships. In addition, we want Xbox Game Pass members to have an easier time finding their subscription-related content. When a new member joins, we will add the Xbox Game Pass content block to the top of their Xbox One dashboard so they can start discovering new games right away!


Image

Official Clubs Get Verified

Team Xbox is always looking for ways to bring players together, and we love seeing how active Clubs have become on Xbox One since they were first introduced. Since the start, a plethora of fan-based and Official Clubs have cropped up, creating homes for communities within the Xbox ecosystem.

But how are Official Clubs different from fan-based ones? Official Clubs are created and managed by game developers and their community managers, and serve as an official source for information and updates. With all the Clubs on Xbox, it can be tough to immediately tell if the one you’re looking at is the Official Club. We’ve added verification badges to make it easier to see which Clubs are run by the developers directly.

Have to say the 'Gold' and 'Game Pass' labels on the game tiles have been really helpful for me, easily sorting out stuff I own from those on subscription services. Think it's a great addition.

I’ll give it a go, but not really seeing the appeal. I’ll be more interested in the campaign.

Oof, if you’re on the store, take a look at the reviews for Assetto Corsa Competizione. People are NOT happy!
