Microsoft occupies a unique spot in the gaming space, as it’s both the default operating system for PC gamers and a powerhouse console manufacturer via its Xbox One family of systems. The Microsoft Store lives on both PCs and Xbox One, often showcasing many of the same games.

One of the neat perks of being an Xbox One user comes from the Play Anywhere initiative. A single purchase grants you access to both the PC and Xbox One versions of select games. Xbox Play Anywhere titles feature cross-save, achievement syncing, and in some cases, cross-platform multiplayer.

As of now, the Xbox Play Anywhere program includes a vast array of more than 70 games, including first party exclusives from the Forza, Halo, and Gears of War series. We’ve compiled a list of every Xbox Play Anywhere title available today.

In order to take advantage of Play Anywhere, you do need to purchase a digital copy of the game from the Microsoft Store.
