Xbox Play Anywhere – Microsoft’s new program which will let some games be playable on both PC and Xbox One – will go live on September 13 in the United States, reports Polygon.
The program – which lets users buy certain games digitally on one platform, but play it on both – was announced by Microsoft last month at their E3 media briefing. The service also saves your progress to one file, letting you carry that progress across PC and Xbox One. Further, it will keep track of any DLC you purchase, making it available to both systems.
The service requires users to have the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition update on their PC (which will be available at the start of August), as well as the Xbox One ‘summer update’ – so winter for us here.
The program also only supports digital purchases. The existing list of supported titles follow:
It’s unclear if the program will become available to New Zealand users this September also. We’ll keep you updated as that information comes in.
