Xbox Play Anywhere is said to be a huge boon to Xbox One owners. Touted as the ability to play your games from any PC, the service was set to give gamers an additional way to enjoy their games - and one that seems eerily similar to Games for Windows Live.
The service is very similar to crossplay on Sony platforms - you buy the game once and are able to play it on PC or Xbox One with your progress saved.
Unfortunately, not all games will support Xbox Play Anywhere. Here's a list that, at launch, the service is set to feature:
The other catch is the games have to be digital. So if you decided to buy a special edition of Gears 4, for example, you'll be out of luck.
"It is specific to digital because we have to be able to associate your account with the product," Aaron Greenberg, Xbox Marketing Chief said. "When you purchase ReCore digitally in the Windows 10 Store on Xbox One, that game will be tied to your account. When you go between multiple devices, we'll be able to say 'this is your game, this is your game library.' We're only able to do that digitally today."
The other thing to keep in mind is that not all future games will use this service - it's up to the developer whether to incorporate this or not.
Notably, Halo Wars 2 will be able to be played on PC - meaning we could see a return to form for RTS titles, should it live up to expectations.
