Michael Wolf over on the Gamerscore Blog announced on Wednesday two new Games for Windows Live titles hitting store shelves this week: Crysis and Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Crysis received a score of 98 out of 100 by PC Gamer and utilizes Windows Vista’s DirectX 10 offering incredible graphics. And Kane & Lynch: Dead Men is a Games for Windows – LIVE title supporting online game play for up to 8 players with free List Play for Silver users and, for Gold members, enhanced matchmaking and online multiplayer achievements.
Gears of War was also released as a Games for Windows – LIVE title earlier this month. The Games for Windows – LIVE update I posted about in October was released as well. Michael Wolf has some information on the update including some specifics about getting the update installed with Gears of War. I was able to install the Games for Windows – LIVE update flawlessly through Shadowrun. You can also download it and install it separately.
Remember, games under the Games for Windows brand offer easy installation, widescreen capability, native 64-bit support, and take advantage of Windows Vista’s gaming features and technology (such as DirectX 10).
It is great Games for Windows expanding with new titles!
