‘Resident Evil 7’ will feature cross-save support on Xbox One and PC

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is shaping up to be one of the most terrifying games of the generation, and it appears that whether you’re in your living room or on the go, you’ll still be able to loosen up your bowels thanks to Xbox One-PC cross-save support.

The game’s cross-save feature, which will allow players to save the game on Xbox One and continue playing on PC (and vice versa) was confirmed by Capcom to IGN shortly after the feature was reported by Japanese site Dengeki.

The feature would give Resident Evil 7 on Xbox One significantly more attention. The game was initially revealed on stage at PlayStation’s E3 conference and features timed VR exclusivity with PlayStation VR, not to mention the franchise’s legacy of appearing on PlayStation platforms. Capcom’s most recent major release, Street Fighter V, released on PlayStation 4 and PC earlier this year, skipping the Xbox One completely — it featured cross-platform play between the two platforms.

Though cross-save support between the two platforms is more convenient than before, it isn’t clear if Resident Evil 7 will be a part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program. Currently featuring 13 games, of which three are already available, Xbox Play Anywhere gives digital purchasers copies of both the Xbox One and PC versions of games, allowing them to play them on the go or at home without losing progress. Some of the games, including Gears of War 4, also support limited Xbox One to PC cross-play. In the aforementioned game, the campaign mode is playable between PC and Xbox One cooperatively.

Resident Evil 7 is out for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on January 24, 2017. Its first-person perspective and emphasis on atmospheric horror is a major change from the negatively received Resident Evil 6, which took a more action-oriented approach and featured many of the series’ most popular characters in starring roles.
