Microsoft announces Xbox Play Anywhere program

 

Microsoft has announced their new Xbox Play Anywhere program, which allows Gamers to own PC and Xbox One games across both platforms with cross-saves, PC + Xbox One Co-op. If you won the game on one platform, you will automatically own it on the other. 

Gamers on PC and Xbox One will not be able to play together in competative modes due to balance issues, but this new program brings Xbox One and PC closer than they ever have been before.

Below are the first games that Microsoft has confirmed to be part of this program, all of which will be exclusively available on the Windows 10 store on PC. This means that all of these games will be UWP applications and likely only work with DX12 compatible hardware. 

 

  • - Forza Horizon 3
  • - Gears of War 4
  • - Halo Wars 2
  • - ReCore
  • - Scalebound
  • - Sea of Thieves
  • - State of Decay 2
  • - We Happy Few

Does this mean that you can play your Xbox games on PC (and vice versa) or just that you can play the same save on both platforms if you happen to own the game on both? It's very unclear to me from the article alone.Quote

It seems to me that buying one copy grants both versions (I'm guessing it'll have to be a digital purchase though). That allows you to play the game on both platforms with shared cloud saves etc.Quote
