  1. “Diablo 3”, one of the best action role-playing video games that is present on our markets works great even for the Windows 10 operating system. So basically you only have to go and install it and give it a try.
    All you have to do is choose one of the six available character classes like the Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor or the Wizard and begin your challenging quest in defeating the Lord of Terror Diablo.
  2. “Battlefield 3” is next on our list and I am happy to announce that it will work flawlessly on your Windows 10 operating system if you have the necessary hardware specs which the game requires to run.
  3. “Startcraft 2” a great game for all the strategy game players out there and you can go right ahead and install it on your Windows 10 technical preview without having to worry about any operating system issues.

  4. “Mafia 2” made for the action adventure game lovers works in Windows 10 technical preview as smooth as it did in the previous versions of Windows operating systems as well.
