The Xbox Play Anywhere initiative was announced at the E3 gaming conference, back in 2016. Here, the gameplay and progress are in sync with an Xbox Live account. Usually, you’ll be able to play a game, purchased on Windows Store, only on the platform of which it’s bought.
But with Play Anywhere, you can continue playing the same game, regardless of the type of the Microsoft gaming device.
However, there are some practical complications with this feature, such as deficiency of supporting the game with its disk and with cross-platform multiplayer options. But in spite of all that, it has received a great response over the time.
Thus, people get excited, on seeing ‘Xbox Play Anywhere’ badge on a game of their interest, at the Windows store. This is certainly for its ability to switch between the Windows 10 PCs/laptops and Xbox One consoles. Therefore, it’s needless to say that it offers both the versions of a game, in a single purchase.
Here, we’ve presented you a brief look at the three best Xbox Play Anywhere titles.
Gears of War 4
The Gears of War has been a prominent entity, associated with Xbox. It’s been over four years, since the last iteration of the cover-based game, “Gears of War: Judgment” was released. Now, it has returned to the Xbox, with “Gears of War 4,” and even supports multiplayer cross-platforms. If you’ve ever been a fan of this game previously, then you’d definitely love it.
The new volume retains most of the gauges set in the previous versions. The story retains the original glare of the game. Eventually, the gameplay is improved a lot, but I feel, it’s just a partway and not an altogether jazz-up. Moreover, the higher difficulty levels are deliberately difficult. Then again, the graphics make it up for all. The corridors, open areas, defense towers, shooting, bursts, etc. are well-defined, as ever.
Forza Horizon 3
The “Forza Horizon 3” is an amazing racing game, unbelievably rendered with excellent visuals. I’d probably say, it’s the one in Play Anywhere, to feature the most number of cars, lined-up in its gameplay. The advancements of the gameplay are quite gripping, which assures to deliver one of the best racing game experience.
The ambiance and outback in the game are so much realistic. It’s said that they are originally recorded in Australia, where the game actually happens. Being, rendered with such a realistic visual graphics, the game obviously demands a way bigger hardware requirements. But, it’s definitely worthy.
Voodoo Vince: Remastered
It’s just the best way to remaster a classic piece of 3D game. Putting it simply, “Voodoo Vince: Remastered” is the best and lite ‘doll on a Mission’ kind of game. It’s been about 14 years when we first saw it on Xbox, and it’s really nice to have it again.
They have transformed the classy old type of environment and characters for the new-age gamers, with missing its original touch. Moreover, we could see the lead, Voodoo Vince, a little aged, which is a wise attempt, to relate ourselves to the game.
However, the gameplay is pretty too much straight and misses the matter of suspense and thrill, to a considerable extent. Hence, you finish it off, in just one sitting, with about 8 hours spent with the Vince.
