Xbox One games make their way to Windows 10 through Play Anywhere starting September 13
Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere initiative will kick off on September 13, allowing gamers to buy select titles once and play them across both Xbox One and Windows 10. Polygon had the story first, with confirmation from Microsoft that Xbox Play Anywhere will go live with the release of ReCore.
In addition to allowing gamers to play titles across both Xbox One and Windows 10, Play Anywhere will also save progress to a single cross-platform save file (enabling one to hop back and forth between systems when playing a game), track a single set of achievements, and will mean downloadable content will be playable across both systems.
In order to take advantage of Play Anywhere, gamers will require both the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (coming on August 2) and Xbox One's yet-to-be-dated winter update. Notably, only games purchased digitally will be supported by Play Anywhere. Xbox One games purchased on disc will not be eligible for Play Anywhere.
The following games will be Play Anywhere enabled: ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, Scalebound, We Happy Few, Sea of Thieves, Cuphead, and Killer Instinct Season 3.
