For the longest time ever, consoles and PCs played separate from one another. This meant that if you played a game on the Xbox, you could only play with other Xbox gamers, and so on. For the most part this is still true, although the companies behind the consoles and also developers are starting to incorporate cross-play.
The good news is that this will also apply to Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition. For those who purchase the upcoming title, it seems that a listing on the Microsoft Store has revealed that it will support cross-play with the Xbox One. However there is a huge catch, and that is you will have to purchase the game via the Microsoft Store.
This means that if you purchase it via other channels, such as through Steam, then you’d be out of luck. There will also be other perks of purchasing it through the Microsoft Store, such as achievements, Xbox Live presence, and cloud saves, just to name a few.
If this sounds like something you’ll want to take advantage of, then you can go ahead and pre-order the game which is currently set for a release on the 6th of March. In the meantime Square Enix has also released a benchmarking tool for the game for gamers to test how well their rigs can handle the game.
