Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is going to support cross-saves between the Xbox One and PC versions of the game. Which means you can start playing the game but pick up where you left off on the PC.
The Japanese site Dengeki first reported about the feature saying, “the Windows Store version can share play data with the Xbox One version.” IGN has said that the game’s publisher, Capcom, confirmed the cross-save feature in one of their statements.
The cross-save function is traditionally only reserved for titles in Xbox One’s ‘Play Anywhere’ program. Which is led by Microsoft where buying an Xbox One version of a game will get you a PC copy of the game as well. While neither Capcom or Microsoft has yet to confirm Resident Evil 7 as a Play Anywhere title. The Play Anywhere program has been limited to Xbox exclusive games so far.
Resident Evil 7 will also be releasing on the PS4, with both the Kitchen VR demo and the full game’s VR mode, which is exclusive to PlayStation, but only for the first year of release.
Capcom has said that they expect Resident Evil 7 to sell around 4 million copies before April 2017, with many more copies expected to follow.
The horror game recently has revealed a £145($180) collector’s edition revealed, complete with an interactive Mansion Music Box model and a severed finger USB stick. You can get it when Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24, 2017.
