Capcom’s upcoming and highly awaited title Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, the latest and allegedly greatest instalment in the Biohazard series, is a game about a nice welcoming house in a quiet neighborhood and the friendly family that lives in it. Atleast that’s what it says in this trailer, anyway:
Home is a welcoming place … a haven of safety and warmth where families meet for laughter and feasts, where friends and strangers are welcomed to the family.
Oh and also, as Xbox’s head Phil Spencer finally confirmed today via Twitter, it is one of Xbox One’s Play Anywhere titles.

Now this isn’t exactly a massively surprising development, since Microsoft did state just last year that the game will support cross-saves between its Windows 10 and Xbox One versions. But it’s still nice to have it officially nailed down. Being a Play Anywhere title means that you can buy Resident Evil 7 digitally for both Windows 10 and Xbox One.
You’ll need to download the game through the Windows 10 Store and not Steam, that’s an important little detail people tend to miss out on. But you can also do the same through Xbox One, and have access to the game on both platforms. That also holds true for your saved games, DLC, Gamerscore, and achievements, all of which will be accessible on both Windows 10 and the Xbox One via your Xbox Live account.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be making its way to your consoles and desktops on January 24, less than a week now. But you may feel free to take the demo, Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour, for a spin right now. It is currently available for users on Steam.
