Those that use Microsoft’s Xbox One console can rejoice at the news the company is preparing to use its Arena feature to add online tournaments. For the moment, this is only available for users signed up for the Preview program, but it will eventually be released to the public. While just an Xbox One feature right now, there seem to be indications that Microsoft is planning on adding this feature to their PC operating system Windows 10 as well.

  • At the Windows 10 event hosted by Microsoft, it specified the availability of this function for those receiving the Windows 10 Creators Update. With this unveiling, it looks like Microsoft is taking steps forward to facilitate its services for eSports and improve the ease of access to its entire customer base.
  • Microsoft officials have been heard saying that Arena is meant to evolve in order for eSports to evolve on Microsoft platforms, the first step towards something bigger.

For the time being, there are not many details about when we might possibly see Arena released for the public and not just for those in the Preview program, but Microsoft is bound to make an announcement sooner or later with further updates. In the meantime, Preview users can head out, try Arena right now, and get an early impression of what’s to come in what most hope to be a short wait.
