Xbox Play Anywhere is now available: Here’s how to use it
What is Play anywhere?
Hardcore gamers will truly understand how important this initiative is. With it, they now have the liberty to purchase an Xbox or a PC game and access it on both platforms with no extra costs. Players can play a title on their Xbox and switch over to their PC in the middle of the game and resume from the same point they left off, and vice-versa. With this newly introduced freedom, gamers can play where they want and whenever they want.
How to make it work
You will need an Xbox One, its latest update, and the Windows 10 Anniversary Update installed on your PC. Without these services, you won’t be able to use the functionality. Purchase your favorite games on one platform, than log into your account on the other platform and you can resume playing. It’s that simple.
Where to get the games?
You can purchase your favorite games through the Xbox app on Windows 10. Or, you can purchase games from the Windows Store, Xbox.com, or with a digital game code sold in stores. Again, you won’t have to pay any additional charges to play it on a console or a PC.
Play Anywhere lets users save and resume game progress, all achievements, all DLC which also includes add-ons, season passes, in-game unlocks, and consumables regardless of which system is being used. Though you can resume or transfer information between platforms, you won’t be able to login to both platforms simultaneously.
