Microsoft’s Windows 10 Wordament app has undergone a huge update and has been essentially rebuilt from the ground up. The app is now called Microsoft Ultimate Word Games and contains full versions of Wordament, Jumble, and Crosswords.

Like the previous Wordament app, Microsoft Ultimate Word Games also connects to Xbox Live but being an app built for Windows 10, this new collection of games rewards the more modern-looking Xbox Achievements as seen on the Xbox One and Windows 10 as opposed to the older Xbox 360 and Windows 8 ones. Similar updates have already been done to several other Microsoft games on Windows 10 such as Microsoft Mahjong and Bingo.

The Wordament app on Windows phone hasn’t updated yet so it’s unclear if Windows 10 Mobile users will be given a new app to play with. The official store listing does say it supports mobile however so the update may still be rolling out to users on different devices. Of particular note is the fact that the Xbox Games Hub for Microsoft Ultimate Word Games lists it as an Xbox One game which suggests that it could be coming to console. It is possible this is just a technical glitch though.
