Xbox One Game Streaming Coming to Windows 10 PCs with Oculus Rift

With the launch of Windows 10 and the Xbox app, Microsoft provided a way for Xbox One owners to stream games to their Windows 10 PC's over the LAN (home network) and now, they are bringing that experience to life, in partnership with Oculus, completely for free.

There is already a partnership of sorts with Oculus, as Microsoft are the main provider's of the controller, but now Rift owners will be able to stream their Xbox One library to Rift with the new Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app. Thus fan favourites “Gears of War 4,” “Forza Horizon 3” and “Halo 5: Guardians,” backward Compatible Xbox 360 games, and more, will be playable on the device.

The Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app is available for free in the Oculus Store on Dec. 12.

The new Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app connects to your Xbox One via your home network. Once connected, your console’s video output is streamed to your Rift headset and projected onto a massive screen in your choice of one of three VR environments: “Citadel,” “Retreat” and “Dome.”

Rift works natively with Windows 10, which makes it easier to set up, jump in and have an incredible VR gaming experience. Combined with DirectX 12 technology that unlocks the full capabilities of new Windows 10 graphics hardware, made-for-VR games on Windows 10 will have the fastest frame rates and top performance.
