Arena, Clubs and Looking for Game for Xbox Live
With the Xbox One Summer Update available, Microsoft is getting back to delivering regular feature updates. Two upcoming features were announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June.
Arena will host competitive tournaments over Xbox Live easily, something that’s not possible today. Also coming are Clubs, a way for Xbox Live users to create their own custom communities without separate social networks, like Facebook. The slightly clunky named, Looking For Game allows Xbox Live users on both PC and Xbox One to send out a call for other users to play with. Gamers simply highlight which title they’re enjoying and what they want to do in that tile.
Clubs and Looking For Game recently launched to members of the Xbox Preview Program for testing and feedback. Microsoft hasn’t said exactly when these few features will launch, just that they are scheduled for a release in 2016.
