Since the game pass library will be in flux it's worth posting the new additions and later on what they take out.

Firewatch! If you haven't played that it should be a crime not to grab that for free

I've watched a playthrough of Firewatch, I can't imagine enjoying the game after seeing the vast majority of what it has to offer.

 

Haven't we had FH2 before?

 

Meh month for me if this is it :(

Yeah, if you've seen it, there isn't much else to it tbh. Picked it up in one of the last summer sales, great game otherwise. The ending was a little meh, but the rest was fantastic.

I guess we give it a few more days and get the official word from MS or Major Nelson.

 

Edit - I've just seen some pics of the alleged first leak and it looks a little fake.

I'm not overly keen on either offering, to be honest. Gigantic is just not my type of game and Dark souls will likely end with me smashing something.

Man I could use Condemned.  And the sequel, which never seemed to exist digitally.  That was a great series.

      Microsoft Teams now has more than 115 million daily active users
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Microsoft today announced its earnings for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2021, bringing in a 12% increase in overall revenue aided by strong numbers from Azure, Surface, Gaming, and more. As usual, CEO Satya Nadella also held an earnings webcast, narrating the highlights of the quarter and the firm’s outlook for the future. As part of that webcast – recapped by Corporate Vice President for Communications, Frank Shaw on Twitter – the firm announced that Teams now has 115 million daily active users.

      This number comes a few months after the company revealed that the collaboration service surpassed 75 million daily active users. The bump in usage is thanks to the increased reliance on working remotely due to the pandemic. The increased adoption can also be attributed to the constantly improving offering from the Redmond firm, with the company adding highly-requested features such as a 7x7 grid view in calls, improved conferencing features like Together mode, features aimed at educations customers, and much more.

      It is not clear if the number of daily active users are counted based on active logins, call participants, or some other metric. However, the rate of increase in its user base is impressive in itself, considering that there were 44 million daily active users in March 2020.

      The firm has also expanded the service with third-party integrations and more, making it a viable alternative to rival offerings. The deep integration with other Microsoft 365 services also adds to the flexibility and usability advantages of the service on multiple platforms.

      While the 115 million number is from the end of Microsoft’s first fiscal quarter ending September 30, it is safe to assume that that number is on the rise today, surpassing the figure provided by the firm. The rapid adoption of the platform in times of the pandemic puts it in a unique spot to benefit from the changes to collaboration trends.

      Microsoft releases manual update packages for removing Adobe Flash from Windows
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Back in September, Microsoft reminded users about the removal of Flash from the Edge browser and Windows, stating that the company will release an optional update for the latter this fall that will remove Adobe Flash Player completely from the OS. As promised, the Redmond giant has made that optional update available for download through the Update Catalog (spotted by BleepingComputer).

      The knowledge base article is KB4577586 and the update is called “Update for Removal of Adobe Flash Player” followed by the version number of the OS for which the package is designated for. You can head to the Update Catalog here to download the update package for your preferred version. The packages are available for all currently supported Windows versions – including LTSB versions – and the related Windows Server versions.

      It must be noted that the package can currently be downloaded only via the Update Catalog for manual installation. The Redmond firm noted in the announcement earlier this year that it will begin releasing this very update via other channels such as Windows Update as a recommended update after Flash Player reaches the end of support on December 31, 2020.

      Additionally, users that currently install KB4577586 manually do not have an option to uninstall or roll back the update and will have to perform a clean installation of the OS to be able to reinstall Flash. The company has also stated that it will be removing all APIs, group policies, and interfaces that are used for managing Flash later next summer.

      Image credit: BleepingComputer Interestingly, folks over at BleepingComputer noticed that installing the update did not get rid of Flash both on Edge and in the OS. The publication has reached out to Microsoft to request clarification. It is not clear if the firm will release another manual update package before serving it to all users through the usual channels.

      Microsoft delays the fifth Flight Simulator patch by a few days due to autopilot issues
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Microsoft has announced that it will be delaying the fifth Flight Simulator patch by a few days that was slated to be made available today. The company has cited some last-minute issues with the autopilot on multiple planes, because of which it will need a few more days to iron out the problems.

      Here is the complete announcement:

      According to the updated Feedback Snapshot from last week, the patch is expected to bring fixes for issues with the terrain emitting light, the promised removal of the ‘Press Any Key to Start’ prompt – something was originally planned in the earlier patches, the ability to disable cockpit tooltips, and more. It is possible that the company will share an updated snapshot as part of this week’s roadmap containing more information about what it plans to address with the fifth patch.

      Considering that the announcement says that the patch is delayed just by a “few days”, it will not be surprising if it is released before the end of this week. With the highest voted issue also containing autopilot issues, it is best for the firm to release an update that does not add to the problems.

      As for other Flight Simulator news, the firm is closer to releasing the VR beta, with emails for the first wave of the closed beta expected to be sent out soon to users running Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
