At E3 Microsoft announced it’s new initiative ‘Xbox Play Anywhere’. This new initiative will allow gamers to purchase games for there Xbox One and receive another code to be able to play on there Windows 10 device. 2 for the price of 1… Bargain!
Microsoft has said that the Xbox Play Anywhere will launch September 13, 2016 – However to be able to take part in Xbox Play Anywhere you will need to have the Windows 10 Anniversary Update as well as the Xbox One Summer Update.
“The Windows 10 Anniversary Update and the related Xbox update coming this summer enable the Windows Store on Windows 10 and Xbox One to support Xbox Play Anywhere games. Then, beginning with the launch of ReCore this fall and continuing with Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2 and others, when you digitally purchase a game that supports Xbox Play Anywhere, you have access to the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs for one price and your progress, game saves and achievements are shared seamlessly across both platforms.”
I think this is a brilliant way to try and bring gamers together as well as get developers to bring more cross platform ideas and play together. Any games that are compatible with Xbox Play Anywhere will be marked on the xbox.com website.
