Resident Evil VII: Biohazard is an Xbox Play Anywhere Title

January 19, 2017

Back at E3 2016 Microsoft’s Phil Spencer announced a brand new program coming to the Xbox brand called Play Anywhere. It worked like Sony’s cross-buy program, with you receiving both an Xbox One and Windows 10 Store version of certain games when buying digitally.

While the games shown on stage that day we’re almost entirely first party ventures (with Gwent being the only third party title), Phil Spencer has today announced that Resident Evil VII: Biohazard is part of the Play Anywhere program. This means you can jump between PC and Xbox One versions effortlessly, with your save game syncing between the two versions.

This is a great win for Microsoft, with the value proposition for a digital copy on the Xbox One or Windows 10 Store doubling. The only thing to keep in mind is that the digital PC version will not unlock on Steam and neither it, nor the xbox one version, have access to the exclusive VR mode found in the PlayStation 4 version.

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard releases one PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 24.
