Microsoft Announces The First Windows 8 Titles

Announced today by Microsoft was the lineup of Windows 8 games that will be coming out when Windows 8 releases later this year. A total of 40 games will be available in the first wave when Windows 8 launches. I don’t know if you are like me, but my question was do they have achievements? YES! Every title listed below will have those “gotta collect them all” achievements.

Of the 40 titles, 29 of them will be from Microsoft Studios themselves. The other 11 are coming from Rovio, Miniclip, Gameloft, ZeptoLab, Glu Mobile and Halfbrick Studios – promising “innovative mix of fun-to-play titles that will be playable on any Windows 8 PC, laptop, or tablet”. If that means what I hope it means, you should be able to buy a game on your PC and still play it on your laptop/tablet. For the full list of games keep reading after the jump.
