During E3, Microsoft announced the 'Xbox Play Anywhere' program, a service that would allow gamers to purchase a game digitally and enjoy the title on both Xbox and PC. Now we are getting word that the service will launch in September.
According to the folks at Polygon, the Play Anywhere service will launch with ReCore, which is being released on September 13th. Not only will the service allow you to play games on both the Xbox and PC, it will also offer progress and achievement synchronization between both systems.
Naturally, there will be some stipulations - PC owners will need to update the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 and Xbox owners will need to download the summer update when it becomes available.
Currently, there are only a handful of games that will support Play Anywhere. You can find the full list below:
- Gears of War 4
- Forza Horizon 3
- Sea of Thieves
- Halo Wars 2
- Killer Instinct Season 3
- State of Decay 2
- Ark: Survival Evolved
- We Happy Few
- Crackdown 3
