Microsoft has said that version 1.2 of its Games for Windows Live service will be spouted out across the Internet in November, GamesIndustry.biz reports.
It will let you obtain Achievements while playing offline and give you the ability to see if you can join friends in their games, along with some other user interface bits and pieces yet to be specified.
So far five games have been announced as supporting the updated service, including The Club and Universe at War from SEGA; Kane & Lynch from Eidos; and Gears of War and Viva Piñata from Microsoft.
Games for Windows Live update 1.1 introduced support for Russian, Polish, Czech, Norwegian and Dutch languages, 12 new gamer pictures, and a new Network Information Viewer to help you get to the bottom of connectivity issues.
