Resident Evil 7 Is An Xbox Play Anywhere Title, Purchase Once To Play On PC And Xbox One
Last year, Microsoft released several Xbox Play Anywhere titles like ReCore and Gears of War 4, allowing players to enjoy games on both PC and Xbox One with a single purchase. Now, it seems like even third party publishers will start taking advantage of this very nice feature.
A few hours ago, Phil Spencer confirmed on his Twitter profile that Resident Evil 7, launching next week on PC and consoles, is going to be a Play Anywhere title.

Resident Evil 7 promises to be a return to form for the popular survival horror series, with the game retaining many of the elements which made older entries of the series great, as recently detailed by the game’s producer Masachika Kiwata.
At first glance, it may not seem like it, but this title will offer plenty of familiar aspects of Resident Evil, from fighting against different creatures to tense, atmospheric exploration and solving various puzzles. As mentioned previously, there are even some subtle nods throughout the game that we hope fans will enjoy discovering as they play.
We’ve made a lot of effort to really strengthen the core of survival horror to the fullest, so you’ll get the sense that this truly is a Resident Evil title when you get your hands on it. This game also embodies one of the central themes of Resident Evil which is the balance of tension from fearful situations with the relief from being able to overcome them.
Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
