Xbox Play Anywhere

Posted 6th Apr

I do not own a recent xbox and have not played on xbox live for about a decade.

I'm starting to get back into gaming and forsee myself buying either an xbox one soon or an xbox series x in the distant future.

In the meantime, I do have a semi-decent gaming laptop and steam and I am interesting in purchasing some Xbox Play Anywhere titles which I can play on my PC and subsequently an xbox when I get around to buying one.

What do I need to know? Are there any gotchas?

Using Gears 5 as an example, I see it on the Microsoft Store (£24.99), Steam Store (£24.99) and Amazon (£19.99). Clearly, amazon is the best choice here... but, if I buy Gears 5 here and redeem it on my windows 10 PC, can I later redeem it on my xbox with the same xbox live account?

Yes as long as it's play anywhere the game will automatically be there in your store when you login. Forza horizon 4 would be a suggestion from me for play anywhere
