Microsoft reveales list of 40 Xbox games for Windows 8

Microsoft on Friday revealed the list of the first 40 games, some of which will be available on the October 26 launch of Windows 8 and Windows RT. The majority, or 29, of the titles are from Microsoft Studios and some of these are exclusive to the platform. Freshened up classics like Minesweeper, Solitaire, and Mahjong are back, but so are some more advanced games.

These include Adera, Angry Birds, Reckless Racing Ultimate, and more. Those that don't come preloaded will be available through the Windows Store. All games will allow players to collect Xbox Achievements, while most will also link to other Xbox features like leaderboards, multiplayer modes, and social network connections.

Picking through the full list, available at the source link below, some of the more interesting titles include Big Buck Hunter Pro, Dragon's Lair, iStunt 2, PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX, and Toy Soldiers Cold War.

Studios such as Rovio, Miniclip, Gameloft, ZeptoLab, Glu Mobile, and Halfbrick Studios are other publishers that contributed their own titles. More titles will be released throughout the holiday season. [via Windows Team Blog]
