What is Xbox Play Anywhere and What are Gamers Saying?

24 Dec , 2016  

In early September 2016, Xbox announced its latest feature: Xbox Play Anywhere.

Microsoft couldn’t release this at a better time, with the newly released ReCore on the market and November’s games just recently launched.

This new feature definitely changes how gamers will play—especially where they’ll play.

From what we can tell, gamers are ecstatic about the feature. But for those who don’t know about it, the real question is…

What is Xbox Play Anywhere?

Xbox Play Anywhere is a service for Xbox One and Windows 10. This service allows us to play a single title on both platforms for free in any location—hence the name. As long as you buy an Xbox Play Anywhere digital game, there are no additional costs to booting it up on a PC somewhere else!

Gamers can instantly start playing from their last save, regardless of the system or purchased DLC!

Pretty convenient if you’re always on the go, right? Coming on the heels of its recent backward-compatibility announcement, Xbox has built quite a bit of good will lately.
