Each console seems to have an extra bonus when it comes to Capcom’s Resident Evil 7. Playstation users has the option to play the game in VR, while Xbox One owners will get the ability to play the game on PC as well thanks to the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative.
Xbox head Phil Spencer announced yesterday afternoon that Resident Evil 7 will be the first triple A title that is not Microsoft produced game to be available for the initiative. Currently two indie games, Rockfish Games’ Everspace and System Era Softworks’ Astroneer, as well as a handful of Microsoft produced titles (Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, ReCore and Killer Instinct) are available on PC as part of the Play Anywhere initiative.
With the Xbox Play anywhere option, players can sync their progress, DLC and in-game unlocks to the Cloud, which then allows them to take the game to the PC or Xbox One. This is of course limited to digital copies of the game and only if they purchase it though the Xbox or Windows Marketplace. While Resident Evil 7 is available on Steam, this will not give you access to a Xbox One copy.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is set to release on January 24th 2017.
