Microsoft has announced that Xbox One game streaming for Windows 10 PCs using the Oculus Rift virtual reality system will be available on Dec. 12 via a new, free app, allowing owners of the console and Rift to stream games like Gears of War 4, Halo 5: Guardians and Forza Horizon 3.

Microsoft added that it will support more games — including legacy Xbox 360 titles — for the Rift in 2017. The app works by connected the PC with a home network that also has an Xbox One connected. Rift owners are then asked to choose between several VR environments to get started.

Meanwhile, Microsoft also announced that Windows 10 PCs can now handle Netflix 4K content, with Windows 10 users also received some exclusive Netflix 4K content, including Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, premiering Nov. 25.
