Microsoft’s utter faith in its Xbox console as the future of gaming led them to release Xbox Play Anywhere. It’s a service that enables gamers to play their digitally purchased titles on both Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs without extra charges. Apart from this, players can pause their game progress on a console and resume from the same point from their PCs, also retrieving all of their saved add-ons and other settings.

Xbox Play Anywhere games have now been released on both the Xbox One Store and Windows 10 Store and the first to make an appearance is the futuristic action-adventure game Recore, followed by the infamous Forza Horizon 3. To use Xbox Play Anywhere, you need to purchase a game from either the Windows Store, Xbox Store or Microsoft.com. To learn how to use Xbox Play Anywhere on your consoles, the Xbox team released a video tutorial to guide its users on how to download a supported title on both platforms:

The process is pretty simple: Just log in to your account from your Xbox Console and from your PC, purchase a digital copy of any Xbox Play Anywhere title and download the game from the Windows 10 Store to your computer. The purchased titles will appear in the « Ready to install » section on your console.

The participating games will be indicated on www.xbox.com and in the Xbox Store denoted by an Xbox Play Anywhere icon in the Windows Store. Here’s the complete list of games participating in Xbox Play Anywhere:
