With a renewed focus on PC gaming, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer took to the stage at the Windows 10 live event to unveil a brand new feature coming to a PC near you. As Spencer loaded up a Steam copy of Sid Meier’s Beyond Earth, he started a quick game and showed off the built-in Game DVR function that will be included in Windows 10.
By simply pressing the Windows+G function, gamers can record any game, any time, on any digital distribution platform. Once the footage is recorded, this content may be shared directly with friends across the Xbox One, PC, and Windows Phones.
The native game DVR functionality isn’t the only big announcement for PC though. Also announced today, Fable Legends will be coming to PC with cross-platform multiplayer, Xbox One games will be streamable to the PC, and DirectX 12 will bring up to 50% better performance to games on PC.
If these announcements have captured your interest in Microsoft’s first-party gaming division, be sure to keep an eye out for more announcements as we get closer to the official Windows 10 launch. There’s a good chance that Microsoft has a few more tricks up their sleeve.
