Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Will Support Xbox One Cross-Play

Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition

With the arrival of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition just one month away, those looking to test out Square Enix’s latest numbered entry in the series on PC have been wondering just how the new version will interact with the other platforms, if at all. Now, it appears that Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition will indeed be capable of interacting with those playing FFXV on the Xbox One.

The news comes to us by way of a new Microsoft Store listing for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition. Under the ‘Capabilities’ section of the listing it is revealed that the title will feature “Xbox Live cross-platform co-op”, which will be available through the game’s multiplayer expansion Final Fantasy XV: Comrades. There is, however, a catch. Xbox Live cross-platform co-op will only be made available through the Microsoft Store version of the game, which means those that are looking to purchase it through Steam won’t have access to cross-platform play. Here’s the breakdown of the features available in the Microsoft Store version of FFXV:
