With the recent release of ReCore, Microsoft officially unveiled the Xbox Play Anywhere program to go along with the release. The Play Anywhere is a new initiative by Microsoft to combine platforms of gaming, letting Xbox gamers play on PC with any first-party Microsoft Studios published game that is digitally purchased, and vice versa. For simplicity’s sake for this article we will be framing any purchase as on the Xbox One, with the PC as a secondary platform.
HOW DOES XBOX PLAY ANYWHERE WORK?
Simply put: buy any Microsoft Studios published Xbox One game after ReCore digitally and it will officially be supported with a free version to use on the PC.
Is that all?Not quite. Sign up for an official Xbox Account (which you should have if you game on Xbox) and Play Anywhere let’s you merge accounts across platforms. Any achievements, progress, season passes and extra DLC and purchases you make on one platform, it will carry on to the other.
