The Xbox Play Anywhere feature was revealed at E3 2016 and was clearly one of the most appreciated development on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC platform. In fact, one would relate it to how Xbox One Backwards Compatibility was a show stopper last time.

This feature allows you to buy an Xbox One or PC multi-platform game on either one of the two platforms and with that single purchase, play it on both the Xbox One and Windows 10. Microsoft has also assured that this does not even require any Xbox Live charges.

Anyhow, everyone has been waiting for the Xbox Play Anywhere launch and now, we have an exact date. A Microsoft spokesperson has confirmed that the feature will go live on September 13 with “Windows 10 Anniversary Update and the related Xbox update.”

The officials have also outlined the list of games that are going to be made available according to the timeline. The first game is going to be ReCore while Forza Horizon 3 will follow later.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update and the related Xbox update coming this summer enable the Windows Store on Windows 10 and Xbox One to support Xbox Play Anywhere games.

Then, beginning with the launch of ReCore this fall and continuing with Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2 and others, when you digitally purchase a game that supports Xbox Play Anywhere, you have access to the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs for one price and your progress, game saves and achievements are shared seamlessly across both platforms.

A total of 12 games have so far been confirmed to support the Xbox Play Anywhere feature which are Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, ReCore, Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2, Scalebound, Killer Instinct Season 3, State of Decay 2, Ark: Survival Evolved, Cuphead, We Happy Few, and Crackdown 3.
