Microsoft announced the Xbox Play Anywhere feature at the E3 2016 gaming convention last month but didn’t provide a confirmed release date, only saying that the feature is going to go live later this year. The company has now confirmed the Xbox Play Anywhere release date, like promised it’s going to arrive later this year, it’s going to arrive in September 2016 to be precise.
Xbox Play Anywhere has been designed to make it easy to play the same game across PC and Xbox One. Players can buy a game digitally on the Xbox One and get its PC version for free, or vice verse. Achievements and game saves will also be available across both platforms courtesy of Xbox Play Anywhere.
To use this feature Xbox One owners are going to require the new summer update that’s going to be released in a few weeks. PC owners will require the Windows 10 Anniversary Update which Microsoft has confirmed is going to be released on August 2nd.
Once all that is taken care off the company is going to flip the switch on Xbox Play Anywhere. The first game to support this feature is ReCore, other games that will get support for this feature include Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, and Halo Wars 2.
Xbox Play Anywhere is going to be released on September 13th, 2016.
