Arena on Xbox Live and More Start Rolling Out to Preview Today

Today, Microsoft is starting to roll out even more features to Preview, including Arena on Xbox Live and special updates to Achievement Rarity and Looking for Group.

As noted on by the crew at Xbox News Wire, here’s a bit more on the new features rolling out to Preview members on Xbox One and the Xbox app (beta):

Arena on Xbox Live:

  • Beginning today, Arena launches to Preview on Xbox One with the pilot title and legendary fighting game, Killer Instinct. During Preview, you can compete in daily Killer Instinct tournaments across Xbox One and the Xbox app (beta) on Windows 10 PC. For the initial roll out, Arena will only be accessible to Preview members through practice tournaments on Xbox One in the U.S., with plans to add additional features and expand to the broader Preview audience later in To start competing, all you have to do is register on the Tournament tab in the Killer Instinct Game Hub. We’re really excited about the potential of Arena and eager to hear your thoughts as we evolve it and make eSports more accessible for gamers everywhere, regardless of skill-level.

Achievement Rarity

  • You might have already seen some buzz about Achievement Rarity from @XboxQwik and @majornelson. If you missed it, Achievement Rarity, a top fan request on Xbox Feedback, launched to Preview a few weeks ago. Now, you’ll be able to discover just how unique an Achievement is among players of a given game and celebrate the Achievement itself with a special notification and diamond icon highlighting it.

New Looking for Group (LFG) Features

  • Starting today, fans will be able to create LFG posts for future gaming sessions – up to seven days in advance! Additionally, based on feedback, fans can now create LFG posts directly in a Club and control who sees them: just members of the Club or everyone on Xbox Live. When creating LFG posts, you can also note what language the party will be speaking and filter your LFG searches based on the language.

Group Messaging on Xbox Live

  • Last week Microsoft launched Group Messaging on Xbox One and the Xbox app (beta) on Windows 10 PC. Group Messaging helps you coordinate and keep in touch with your friends and fellow gamers by sending a single group message to everyone in the group. You can also add people to the group and dynamically change the conversation topic. Group Messaging will soon work across the Xbox app (beta) on iOS and Android devices.

So there you have it, simple, sweet and to the point.
