For gamers with a fetish for survival horror games, Capcom’s last addition to their iconic horror franchise, Resident Evil 7, should definitely be making their gaming list.

There’s no denying that Capcom’s horror genre has seen some rough days, with their releases over the past years having been a disappointment because of their failed efforts in incorporating a Call of Duty and Gears of War-esque touch to their games. Resident Evil 7 has broken tradition in reviving the franchise’s long lost charm.

The limited number of major third-party PC titles on the Windows 10 Store is noticeable. The most remarkable title they have is Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. But now that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is making the list, things are certainly turning the other way.

The announcement was first made on a Japanese website Dengeki along with a confirmation of the game’s release on Steam, Xbox One, and PS4. Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America and Europe on January 24, 2017 and in Japan on January 2.

Moreover, the most recent demo video for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard reveals a new set of villains. Apart from that, Capcom confirmed to IGN that the PC and Xbox One versions of Resident Evil 7 will feature cross-save support and stated that “the Windows Store version can share play data with the Xbox One version.”

The Windows 10 version of Resident Evil 7 is expected to sport cross-buy functionality (given that previous games in the “Play Anywhere” scheme have also been the same), which is a positive as cross saving is a pretty useless feature if you have to buy two versions of the same game just to use it.

This shows that Resident Evil 7’s development is heavily focused on UWP and will be immediately ready for Project Scorpio when it launches in 2017. Not to mention the HDR and 4K support for Xbox One S that comes with it for PC users.
