Good news for players switching between PC and console, as Resident Evil 7 will feature cross save support between the Windows 10 and Xbox One versions of the game. This suggests that Resident Evil 7 could be the first third party title to feature as part of Xbox’s “Play Anywhere” scheme, alongside first party games like Gears of War 4 and Killer Instinct.

Capcom confirmed to IGN that the PC and Xbox One versions of Resident Evil 7 will feature cross save support, after a translation of a Dengeki article by IGN Japan stated “the Windows Store version can share play data with the Xbox One version.”
This could point to the Windows 10 version of Resident Evil 7 being cross buy, as cross saving is a pretty useless feature if you have to buy two versions of the same game just to use it. Previous games in the “Play Anywhere” scheme have also been cross buy, so it stands to reason that Resident Evil 7 may be too, if it is part of this promotion.
The Dengeki article also states that HDR and 4K support will be available for PC users on launch so players can enjoy stalking round the grotty Baker household at the highest resolution.
If you aren’t too fond of navigating or dealing with the Windows Store, fret not as there is a Steam version of Resident Evil 7 if you are not at all interested in cross saves between PC and Xbox One. Resident Evil 7 is set to release on January 24, 2017.
