New Xbox One Update with Beam Support
Whats up gamers? Welcome to some more gaming news for you. Last night was full of updates as I was beginning to play the new Destiny expansion “Age of Triumph” I was prompted with an Xbox One system update that hindered me from playing. However, once done they added a new dashboard and apparently some sweet new features.
I know many of you are probably preview members like myself, but this is what you have to look forward to coming in April. There are some features to enjoy which involve Beam. This is a new streaming service backed by Microsoft that gives gamers a new area of a streaming service. I have been on beam for quite some time and there is a new audience to stream too as well as this cool points system that rewards you for streaming and watching other streamers. You can use said points for streamers voice sound buttons and unlock some other features. I am currently level 72, but I am hoping some more rewards become available.
The new dashboard does make things compact a bit with easier access to your features. Xbox has also separated the Xbox 360 games from the Xbox One titles. I like this feature because of the structure, makes things less cluttered.
Another huge feature is the Xbox Co-pilot mode. This is known as “Shareplay” on the PlayStation 4. I remember this feature from my homie mechanic who had some trouble playing that one mission against the tank forces in Batman: Arkham Knight and I took over his game helping him get through their level. This is the same concept where you can help out a buddy and take over their game online. This is a fantastic feature to give players a chance to try out a game before their buy it instead of watching your friends play.
So, far I can dig it and glad to see beam is up and running for those that are previewing it right now. If you want to take a look at the dashboard yourself, please follow me on Beam.pro/Beastgamerkuma. I will take you on a tour as we play some Mass Effect: Andromeda. The dashboard will be available to all Today, but also check out April’s new Games with Gold free games and deals. – Beast Out –
