    So with this xbox anywhere feature do I just buy the digital version of this from xbox store and then I'll also get the pc version?

    Yeah. Im not sure how big the pc community will be on it though so i might just get it cheaper and stick with the xbos version. Then again it should be stunning on pc.

    Wait, I thought MS said that save games would transfer between platforms and that it's all unified under Xbox Live - so there is no "PC community" there is only the Forza community. XBOX and PC players playing with each other.

    Is that not the case?!

    Surely the size of the PC community irrelavant, given how it is fully cross play to. Doesn't matter which platform you buy it. I am also considering getting this Digitally.

    Edit : yeah what he said :)

    I knew it was cross buy but not cross play. That complicates things then. Do i pay 35 or 50 :/

    Dunno about Forza, but stuff like Halo Wars 2 is cross-everything bar play, due to control issues. So 'cross buy' doesn't necessarily mean cross play, but for FH3 I would think cross play is in. Dunno for sure though.

    Guess I'll have to be on my toes on a game-by-game basis. FH3 and Gears 4 (and maybe Sea of Thieves or whatever the Rare game is called) were the games piquing my interest.

    The Forza 6 Apex release had XBOX Drivatars in my PC game, so I'd hope FH3 will be cross play. That said, I mainly played the original single player so perhaps it doesn't matter.

    Pretty sure it is. I had a look on the forza forum after you guys said and seems you were right from what i could see.

    Quote from a turn 10 employee.
    "Cross Play in Horizon 3 covers all online modes, co-op, competitive, and "playground" modes like King, Infected, and the new Flag Rush modes. "

    I would think pretty much all of them will be cross-play. HW2 as an RTS has too big a gap between speed of control.

    Gears 4 will probably be campaign only due to the control differences too.

    You might argue that Gears 4 Multiplayer, running at 60fps in higher res on PC, would also offer a competitive advantage. Maybe it'll just be an option in the lobby settings: "don't let any PC bastards in!" :)

    A choice would be nice, but yeah in fact racers might be one of the few genres free of the pain! I think Gears 4 is 60fps in MP on console, but 30 in SP.

    Ah, you're right on the 60FPS Gears Multi front, forgot about that. You'd still have to say that higher res and more bells and whistles might make it easier to spot the opposition and aim at them. We'll see closer to launch I guess. As long as campaign co-op is cross play though, I'm fine. Haven't enjoyed the MP since Gears 1.

    But yeah - FH3 should be fine at least.

    Hang on, if there's cross play does that mean I can finally play Forza with my Driving Force Pro wheel (on PC)?

    Get Forza 6 Apex (it's free!) and try it out. :)

    I did. The game told me it wouldn't run because of an incompatible graphics card. I need a new laptop anyway.

    Wrt Gears, they've already said all co-op modes are cross-play, while are not.

    Ah, good to know, Ror, cheers. I haven't been following closely because - well, because all their reveals and videos are so corporate and overproduced it makes my eyes sting. :D

    No worries. Also, that should say while 'competitive' are not. I don't know where that word went.

    Well, you're not in a hurry, they *still* haven't added wheel support to Forza: Apex.

    I beg your pardon? You must be joking. Really?

    @LittleSparra now that a drivable warthog is a "thing", perhaps turn 10 can now accurately simulate the skyline r34

    Bit late to this particular party, but here's the trailer.



    As ridiculous as it is, that's almost enough to get me to buy the game.

    As much as I want this I can't find it cheaper than 50 Digitally which is frankly ridiculous when I primarily want to play it on PC with maybe an xbox later down the road.

    Also no incentive to pre order really. So i can wait and see how broken the port is. If its great can always spend the silly money later.

    What do people think, will this be a broken mess? Windows Store isn't exactly known for polished experiences.

    KI works really well. Wasn't Forza Apex good, too? Seems like it's a 50/50 chance.

    They started off poorly, but have improved. Forza 6 Apex is very good, supposedly.

    Forza Apex really is quite splendid, bit of a shame though that there is neither wheel support (nor DLC) yet. I guess it's not Turn 10's priority, what with FH3 on the - wait for it - horizon.
