Microsoft is continuously working to improve its services and applications. After the launch of its next-generation of consoles, the company could have some news to show regarding its services for PC and Xbox. Recently, prototypes showing the redesigned Xbox Store user interface began to circulate on the Internet.
According to reports, Twitter user wincommunity shared screenshots of the new application from the Xbox Store, which identifies elements of Microsoft’s Fluent Design. Later, the YouTube channel Brad Sams shared an early version of Project Mercury, its supposed code name, and a functional version of the application that can be seen in the video.
According to the video that is posted below, the interface seems to be very intuitive. When you click on a game, 2 options stand out: install or buy it, as you can imagine, the first option allows you to play a free and trial version and it is only possible to download it if you have a demo in the store. If they are sold in several editions, they will also be displayed.
It is also striking that there are tabs for the best-selling or most free games, as well as one completely dedicated to Xbox Game Pass titles. It is important to say that Microsoft has not officially spoken about this new application, so the details of its launch or what platforms it will be available for are not known; that is, if it will only go to Xbox Series X, if it will be Windows 10 or if it will have support for the entire Xbox and Windows family.
It is also unknown if this new application will replace the Microsoft Store or if it will only be dedicated to games and other applications shared by consoles and PC. We remind you that Microsoft has not confirmed the existence of Xbox Lockhart, a cheaper version of the Xbox Series X.
In any case, the company will carry out frequent broadcasts, in which the console’s exclusive games will be revealed and which may serve to show the new model and the new store in action.
