The thing about owning a PC and a console is that sometimes you can’t decide which platform to buy a game on. There are of course various pros and cons, but suffice to say that no one likes having to pay for the same game twice. The good news is that Resident Evil 7 will not be a problem if you own an Xbox.
In an announcement by Microsoft, it seems that Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 7 will be the first third-party title to be part of Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere lineup. For those who are unfamiliar with the program, what this means is that gamers who purchase the digital copy of the game whether it be on the Xbox One or PC will have no issues downloading and playing the game on the other platform.
So that means that you’ll be able to switch between your Xbox One and PC to play the game, and the best part is that saves, trophies, and DLCs will be carried between both platforms, thus saving you from having to replay all over again. This can be handy if the TV is being used by someone or if someone else is using the Xbox.
Unfortunately this is not available for the PS4, although we guess PS4 gamers do have the advantage of being able to play the game in VR thanks to PlayStation VR. That being said we should remind you guys that the game will be released on the 24th of January, 2017.
