Microsoft Could Be Changing Xbox One Games Development By Using The Cloud

The cloud could change the way developers change and improve games sooner, rather than later.

Microsoft recently showed off how it foresees developing games, as well as issuing updates for those games in the very near future. The company has come up with a way where someone can change various aspects of a game, including the very mechanics that govern it in real time. The updates to those mechanics are then demonstrated in the gameplay immediately, without having to download a new patch.

Microsoft showed off this feature using Project Orleans, which has already been implemented in parts of Halo: The Master Chief Collection‘s online play. Microsoft Azure CTO Mark Russinovich showed the feature at the Build 2015 conference on a little game that has been dubbed Actoroids. The “Reliable Actors API” allowed Russinovich to go into the cloud and make new uploads and builds and then apply those changes to the way asteroids and other virtual actors behaved in the game right away.

While Actoroids might be a very simple game, it seems as if Microsoft is dedicated to bringing this kind of feature to bigger and more detailed games in the very near future. It seems likely that there will be a day, not too long from now where an Xbox One player might complain about a particular bug and that bug will be ironed out in a matter of hours or days, instead of weeks. The fact that the bug would be ironed out as the player was online using the game sounds pretty attractive as well. For now, take a look at the video below and see how the cloud could be changing game development in the near future.

    Should rename it to xboxwon… And MS apparently isn’t innovative. Creating new tech whilst Sony buys it, and makes it inferior

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      This isn’t new tech. The Xbone is getting destroyed in sales because Microsoft lied about the cloud and many other things. Cloud isn’t anything new.

      Meanwhile Sony is innovating with PlayStation Now, Share Play, Remote Play, PlayStation Vue and many other better features. Microsoft has been doing nothing but copying the PS4 over the past 2 years. Microsoft’s is even ripping off Remote Play and making it inferior. PATHETIC!

    • Just stop you’re making yourself look stupid.

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      Says the guy with an Xbox Live Avatar for a profile picture. LOL

      Microsoft fan boys must not like facts.

    • At least I will admit when microsoft is doing something wrong but you will defend sony every chance you get no matter what they do.

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      Why would you support a company that lied to you about DRM, Kinect, and fake exclusives? Why would you support a company that ripped you off with Xbox Live for 10 years and then coppied PS+ because they knew they couldn’t get away with it anymore?

      Answer the questions degenerate. LOL

    • Modi Rage

      Owned!!!!

    • bardock5151

      Circlejerking^^^!!!!!!

    • I can easily answer that you know the head of the company that made those decisionsgo through right ? They got fired *Speaks slowly for you* and when I brought the console right ? It didn’t have those things and the kinect was just a bonus I use it for a mic online and I plug my dre beats into my TV without paying extra and I didn’t get ripped off from xbox live at all ? Please explain that one because I had no problem with it being I never got my credit card or information stolen 😉 I’m sure we all remember that fiasco with sony and Ps plus copied party chat and also making you pay for online.So you shouldn’t have mentioned that lol sounds backwards to me but who would support sony after making the Ps3 $600 and copying almost everything nintendo did ? Every company messes up dumba** End of story stop being a fan boy.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      John Derp why would you support a company known for spying on you and being one of the biggest investors in DRM?

      Oh wait because you are a moron :^)

    • Michael Norris

      Sony develops technologies all the time this isn’t new.The fact that MS wanted to police there customers with a 24 hour lockout was wrong.Now they are paying for it,Ps4 owns half the market now and i just don’t see it getting much better for MS from here on out.3rd party games sell much better on Ps4 3rd party developers are on with Sony.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Sony develops technologies to spy on you, police your media consumption and have done for the last 20 years. Yet you support them and excuse them like the disgusting shill you are.

      Sony are just the japanese Microsoft Who also rip off Nintendo and Valve because they never had a good idea. No wonder Samsung is beating them to a pulp

      By the way, PS4 doesn’t own squat in the market. It barely scrapes a miniscule portion of the market Vs over a billion PC Gamers. PC Gaming rules the market and will always rule the market. Stay mad, Sonycuck

    • Modi Rage

      LMAO

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Neither do Sony fanboys :^)

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69
    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      “M-M-MUH METACRITIC”

      Funny how that Didn’t matter for The Odor 800P John Derp

    • Modi Rage

      Psionicinversion is just damage controlling for Microsoft as usual.

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      I know. He’s been hyping up and lying about DX 12 for the past year saying it will save Xbox but I destroyed him on another article.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      You couldn’t destroy a wet paper bag. I owned you when you started backpedalling about Vulkan after I proved it will do NOTHING for the PS4.

      All you are is a pathetic, desperate snivelling little shill and cancer upon gaming

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      And where did I ever back pedal. I all ready told you. The PS4 doesn’t need Vulkan. Vulkan is based off Mantel and Mantel is based off the PS4’s lower level API. The PS4 will benefit from Vulkan and DX 12 just as the Xbone will.

      You haven’t “owned” anything other than your low self esteem. LOL

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      John Derp doing a 180 like Sony is doing on all their policies.

      Vulkan will never help the POS4. It will still be garbage 20FPS machine while PC will be 120FPS :^)

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Look at that post history. I wonder who’s marketing company you could be working for? :^)

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      How are Sony innovating with PSN? Copying everything Valve does but adding more downtime and paywalls? No wait they are copying MS with TVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTV

      Valve invented remote play, loser.

    • Psionicinversion

      How is sony innovating with PSN??? getting it to actually work properly hahahaha

    • Michael Norris

      Funny that you say that because nearly every time i get online i read something about XBL having issues and certain services not working.You are a sad sad guy that needs to move on in life.

  • Cenk Algu

    The funny part is SONY’s itsself admitting that the PS5 will completely be using Cloud Computing while their fans still claiming that it is nothing but a pipe dream.I just wonder what will they do if Sony announces Cloud Computing even for PS4 as well.

    • d0x360

      If Sony says it will work then it just will! =P

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      If Microsoft says it will work, you can bet that it won’t. LOL

    • d0x360

      Clever girl… My god man you are so one note its obvious its you regardless of the username you picked that day. Its fantastic. You are truly one in a million.

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      <3

    • d0x360

      You know it

    • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

      The funny part is that Sony never said that and Sony is using different tech, not gimmicks and smoke and mirrors like Microsoft is.

      Calm down Xbox fan boys.

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      Sony are all about gimmicks and smoke and mirrors. “MUH 8GB GDDR5”, “MUH GPGPU”, “MUH HSA”, “MUH HUMA”

      And it still looks like PS2 games.

    • Cenk Algu

      All I can see ia a die hard troll.So you are nothing but an ignorant fool and I have no time for such a pathetic hopeless people;)

  • Xbot&PhilSpencer69

    So Microsoft lied about the cloud and the cloud won’t do anything for Xbox. The cloud has been doing AI and physics for ages. The reason why Microsoft is showing this is because they’re marketing their servers. They want devs to subscribe. It was all a marketing trick.

    Microsoft really does know how to hype up fan boys with old flawed technology. They’re marketing geniuses.

    • theduckofdeath

      You know people are playing streamed games on PS4, right?

    • You Are Flat Out Wrong

      You mean like everything Sony rips off from Valve and Nintendo, right?

      John Derp you crack me up with how utterly stupid you are

  • Cyberats

    And there’s the end gamer of all THE CLOUD, mainframe and your expensive paperweight PC. All software is OURZ, ourz my precious….

  • Sounds Nerdy

    https://youtu.be/rqL6EpVAX84 #Microsoft #XboxOne has major changes since launch, how is it 18 months later check out our review. @Xbox @Microsoft

  • Bobby Crosby

    If you think this this was actually done “on the cloud” then I have beachfront property in Montana to sell you.
