In an attempt to unify its gaming ecosystem, Microsoft created the Play Anywhere program. In it, both purchases and features can be shared between Xbox One consoles and Windows 10 PCs.
The biggest feature is undoubtedly a cross-platform marketplace, with a single purchase providing access to both Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of the game. Progress and achievements also sync between platforms, by automatically saving to your Microsoft account. Multiplayer titles have the option to offer cross-platform play, allowing for shared cooperative and competitive experiences. However, as this feature comes with its own complications, it isn’t forced upon all Play Anywhere titles.
