Microsoft has announced that the first wave of Xbox Play Anywhere titles are now available for pre-order in the Windows 10 store. The Xbox Play Anywhere program allows a consumer who purchases a game to play it on either a Windows 10 PC or Xbox One without additional charge. The games this holiday that are featured are Forza Horizon 3, ReCore, and Gears of War 4. Here is an excerpt from the official Microsoft press release:
“When you buy an Xbox Play Anywhere digital game through the Xbox Store or the Windows Store, it’s yours to play on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC at no additional cost. Plus, when you start playing any Xbox Play Anywhere game, you can pause and pick back up where you left off on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC, bringing all your saves, game add-ons, and Achievements with you. In all cases, Xbox Play Anywhere titles act as one game with one account and can be accessed across multiple devices. And if you don’t yet own one of these devices, don’t worry, your catalog of Xbox Play Anywhere games lives in the cloud and will be ready to download in the future.”
