How Gears of War 4 for PC Works with Xbox Live Play Anywhere
Again, because Gears of War 4 for PC is an Xbox Live Any where title, purchasing one digital version will unlock a companion version for the other. The games sync between Xbox One and Windows PCs, meaning progress is only racked up once. DLC purchases made in one, works in the other too.
Broad support for multiplayer between Xbox One and Gears of War 4 for PC isn’t happening. Instead, The Coalition is enabling cross-play on a case by case basis. Horde Mode, and Campaign co-operative play have the feature. So do LAN games and multiplayer versus. General population multiplayer won’t. As such, users don’t have to worry about PC or Xbox users having a distinct advantage whenever.
A single user can’t play the same game on Windows 10 and Xbox One through the same account. Theoretically, one user could be on PC and another user could be on Xbox One. For that to work without purchasing two copies, the Xbox One in question needs to be the Home console of the user that purchased the game.
Good luck with the Gears of War 4 for PC release. Pre-orders for the game have already kicked off at the Microsoft Store. A basic copy of the game costs $59.99.Gears of War 4 Ultimate Edition costs $99.99. It includes the game’s season pass for add-on content.
