Players that buy the new title digitally will be able to not only play on both platforms, but also be able to access any DLC (downloadable content) and game save data. Gamerscore and Achievements will post to Xbox Live regardless of which system you play the game on.
The next entry in the long running Capcom series is added to a short, but expanding list of Play Anywhere titles. The PA format was announced at the 2016 E3 conference and was the first big step in trying to somewhat bridge the gap between PC and console gaming. The current list of Play Anywhere confirmed titles are as follows:
- Gears of War 4
- Killer Instinct: Seasons 1, 2, and 3
- Forza Horizon 3
- Slime Rancher
- The Culling
- ARK: Survival Evolved
- Sea of Thieves
- State of Decay 2
- Halo Wars 2
- We Happy Few
- Crackdown 3
- Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is set to release in the United Staes on January 24 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows 10 PC. If you haven’t already, you can pre-order a digital version of the game image below.
