Windows 10 comes with Candy Crush Saga automatically installed


Windows 10 comes with Candy Crush Saga automatically installed, Microsoft has announced.

King's hugely popular social game joins Solitaire, Minesweeper and Hearts as pack-in games included with the operating system.

"As an added bonus, Candy Crush Saga will automatically be installed for customers that upgrade to or download Windows 10 for periods of time following the game launch," Microsoft said in a post on Xbox Wire.

The Windows 10 version of Candy Crush Saga includes cross-play with iOS and Android devices, which is pretty nifty.

Windows 10, due out this summer, is a free upgrade to anyone using Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.1, so long as customers claim this offer in the first year the upcoming OS is on the market.

From a gaming perspective, one of Windows 10's most enticing features is that it will allow users to remote play Xbox One games on their Windows 10 devices using an Xbox One gamepad as a controller. There will also be a universal Xbox app across all Windows 10 devices.
