Xbox Play Anywhere now available to pre-order via the Windows Store


Starting today, Canadian consumers can pre-order and buy Xbox Play Anywhere titles via the Windows Store. This marks the first Xbox One titles are available on the Windows Store. Previously, if a consumer wanted to pre-order or buy a Xbox One title digitally, they had to go through the Xbox Store.

The change comes as part of Microsoft’s new Play Anywhere initiative. Moving forward, all of the company’s forthcoming first-party releases will be simultaneously available on Windows 10 and Xbox One. Moreover, buying a Xbox Play Anywhere title grants the consumer access to both versions of the game without an extra purchase.

Xbox Play Anywhere titles that are currently available to preorder include Recore (seen above); Gears of War 4, developed by Vancouver-based The Coalition; and Halo Wars 2.
