Microsoft ‘Xbox Play Anywhere’ Can Be Played Even Without an Xbox Live Gold Account
Microsoft may have just spurred up more attention following their announcement of a new initiative called the “Xbox Play Anywere”.
The offer means that customers who end up purchasing an Xbox One game (or PC) game title will end up getting a version for both platforms. Once an official purchase is made, the game title will appear on the Windows 10 library and vice versa, including saved games on either platform.
While the whole setup sounds lush, there are some concerned on whether such would require them to be an Xbox Live Gold member. Such was clarified by Microsoft, revealing that players don’t need to have an account to enjoy the “Xbox Play Anywhere” program. Such was coursed through Game Spot by a Microsoft representative.
Aside from the expected online multiplayer games, the post also adds that the same holds true for two upcoming Xbox Live features, background music and language region independence. The two features are expected to come out this Summer through an Xbox One update.
While the barriers on those areas should be good news, the rep also clarified that as far as playing in arenas found on Xbox Live, such will require an Xbox Live Gold account.
The “Xbox Play Anywhere” is seen as a good tactic that could automatically beef up the players for both platforms and thus account for better and a wider player population.
For now, the “Xbox Play Anywhere” program is mostly made up of first party titles from Microsoft. Among the listed titles via CNet include the following:
- Ark: Survival Evolved
- Crackdown 3
- Dead Rising 4
- Forza Horizon 3
- Gears of War 4
- Halo Wars 2
- Killer Instinct: Season 3
- Phantom Dust
- Sea of Thieves
- State of Decay 2
- We Happy Few
“Xbox Play Anywhere” is certainly a generous offer but one thing gamers are wary about is game performance. Obviously the case would be different for either platform and hopefully Microsoft has this covered as well.
