The new Xbox Play Anywhere program allows users to share their games from both their Xbox One console and their Windows PC. Resulting in only one necessary purchase on one of the platforms.
There are a couple of games that take advantage of the new feature, however, RE7 biohazard will be the first major AAA third party title.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard will release on January 24 for PS4, Xbox One, Steam, and Windows.
