Resident Evil 7 will be the first 3rd-party game coming to Xbox Play Anywhere

In what could be a coup for the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer announced on Twitter that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title when it launches tomorrow.

This means that gamers who purchase a digital version of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard from the Xbox Store or Windows Store will automatically have access to the game on both platforms. This will also allow RE7 players to save their progress, including all DLC add-ons and Gamerscore/Achievements, so they can pick up where they left on another Xbox One or Windows 10 PC.

Do note that the above does not apply or work if you purchased the game on Steam or a boxed copy at a retail store. The game’s VR mode is still exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR too.
