As we mentioned earlier this week, Wordament is now officially part of the Xbox LIVE games family with it’s update/availability today. Originally, Wordament was release on the Windows Phone some time ago, but was not part of the Xbox LIVE games collection. It has now been bestowed with the honor of being an Xbox LIVE Windows Phone game.
If you already had Wordament installed on your Windows Phone, you should have received an update to the new version 2.0 Xbox LIVE edition. If you want to download Wordament go right ahead, it’s now listed as an Xbox LIVE game on the marketplace. The new Wordament obviously boasts the expected Xbox LIVE friends integration, leaderboards, and 200 Gamerscore worth of achievements.
A couple of special changes to note with the Xbox LIVE version release:
- This free release updates and replaces the current version that you have and adds a number of fun and top player-requested features.
- The most notable change is that we are retiring our screen name system and moving exclusively to Xbox LIVE Gamertags. That means you need to have an Xbox LIVE account set up, follow the instructions from the Wordament Blog on how to do that.
- Language Editions will also be rolling out over the next couple of months. English is initially available with the launch, and Spanish BETA. In the next months the following languages will be added: Dutch, Swedish, French, German, and Italian.
Wordament is published by Microsoft Studios for this now available version 126.96.36.199 release, downloads at 5 MB, and is currently listed to support Deutsch, English, Español, Français, Italiano, Nederlands, and svenska languages.
Wordament is absolutely free, and being a brand new Xbox LIVE title, there is no point downloading the trial version. The game is ad-supported and very addicting (we warned you). My Windows Phone is actually charging right now because I’ve already drained the battery playing Wordament.
