State of Decay 2 cross-platform play is something that players expected when the game was announced as an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Letting State of Decay 2 cross-play between Xbox One and PC would definitely make the title more appealing, which is something Microsoft needs since it's lagging behind PS4 in appealing exclusives. Below we'll tell you everything you need to know about cross-platform, cross-play, and Xbox Play Anywhere in State of Decay 2.
Is State of Decay 2 Cross-Platform and Have Cross-Play?
As a first-party published game, you can bet that Microsoft Game Studios wants to get State of Decay 2 on as many machines as possible. Part of this is making the game as accessible as possible. Part of the title's appeal is that it does have cross-play and cross-platform capabilities.
So, if you have the game on PC, you can still play co-op online with your friends, even if they're on Xbox One. This means there should be a healthy multiplayer audience for the game for quite awhile.
Is State of Decay 2 an Xbox Play Anywhere Title?
In addition to being able to play cross-platform, State of Decay 2 is an Xbox Play Anywhere game. This is one of Microsoft's coolest programs and allows you to start a game on Xbox One and pick it up right where you left off on PC and vice-versa. If you're playing on your PC and what to lounge around on the couch, you don't have to pick up a different game, just log onto your Xbox One and continue where you saved.
Xbox Play Anywhere also means you only have to buy one version of the game to have it on both platforms. Grab the Xbox One version from the Xbox Live Store, and you'll find you also own it on the Windows Store. What a savings!
