The world of technology has been progressing in rapid leaps and bounds. Gaming, at one point of time, was a part of the markets of technology, but has today become an industry of its own. The gaming industry has been booming at a much rapid rate, and consoles keep improving time to time. The console wars have been on since quite a long time, and both, Microsoft and Sony have been trying to get better with every passing day. Competition has been getting hotter and the gamers are in for a treat in the years to follow. In latest announcement from Microsoft, the release date for the XBOX Play Anywhere program has been announced – September 13.
The XBOX Play Anywhere program is a unique approach from Microsoft which allows the users to play a select number of games on Windows 10 PC as well as XBOX One with a single purchase. The company has made the following announcement, announcing the arrival of the XBOX Play Anywhere feature:
“The Windows 10 Anniversary Update and the related Xbox update coming this summer enable the Windows Store on Windows 10 and Xbox One to support Xbox Play Anywhere games,” a Microsoft spokesperson explained to Polygon.
“Then, beginning with the launch of ReCore which launches on September 13 this fall and continuing with Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2 and others, when you digitally purchase a game that supports Xbox Play Anywhere, you have access to the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs for one price and your progress, game saves and achievements are shared seamlessly across both platforms.”
Not only would you be able to play the game on both, the Windows 10 PC and the XBOX One consoles, but also, DLCs purchased on one would be activated for the other as well. This is only for the digital downloads of the games.
