xbox play anywhere

Play Anywhere, it’s the hot new Microsoft thing that let’s you play the same digital copy of a game anywhere, if “anywhere” is your Xbox One console or Windows 10 PC. Both of which, technically, could also be anywhere, I suppose. Like the middle of rush hour traffic, or a swamp, or a five-hour Pick N Pay shopping queue on a Saturday morning at the end of the month. Actually, that last one doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.

Anyway, the company has confirmed a list of 12 upcoming games that support Play Anywhere, including:

  • Gears of War 4
  • Forza Horizon 3
  • ReCore
  • Sea of Thieves
  • Halo Wars 2
  • Scalebound
  • Killer Instinct – Season 3
  • State of Decay 2
  • Ark: Survival Evolved
  • Cuphead
  • We Happy Few
  • Crackdown 3

By signing into a game that supports Play Anywhere, you get access to your ongoing progress, saves, DLC, and achievements on Xbox One or PC, although you can’t be signed into both at the same time because that would probably break the universe or something.
