It seems that the Quantum Break Xbox One & Windows 10 promotion was not a one-time deal. During Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference a feature called Xbox Play was announced. This feature allows you to buy a game once and play it on your Xbox One console or your Windows 10 PC. Even your save files will carry over from one platform to another. This is an important step towards fulfilling the vision of buying a game once and playing it anywhere.
The first batch of games to support Xbox Play are:
Gears of War 4
Forza Horizon 3
Dead Rising 4
State Of Decay 2
Halo Wars 2
It will be up to developers and publishers to decide if they want their own games to utilize the Xbox Play feature. It is probably safe to assume that outside of Microsoft’s own games we will see the biggest support for Xbox Play come from indie developers. Still, it is a nice option to have when buying games.
