Thanks to « Xbox Play Anywhere », all the games that are published on Xbox One will be playable on a PC running on Windows 10. And what’s great is that your saved games will be shared on both machines, which means there no risk of losing your progressions!

How to use an xbox account bought on a store ?

First of all, you need to know if you have Windows 10 Anniversary. How to check that it is installed? First, click on this link. Then, you will be directed to the following window, where in which you need to click on “Get the Anniversary Update now“.

Then go to “This PC” – you can find this by typing “PC” in the Cortana search bar at the bottom of your screen, just where you can read : “Search Windows“. Click on “Downloads” in the left part of the windows, then double click on “Windows10Upgrade28084” in the right part. If you don’t have Windows 10 Anniversary, this tool will begin the setup and if you do, it will tell you so.

Now that this step is done, launch the Window Store by clicking the icon on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen, or type “store” in Cortana’s search bar.

Once the download has begun, click on the icon on the left of the search bar and follow the same procedure as before to disconnect. Now add your own account again by following the same steps as when you added the bought Microsoft account. The game is now directly available in your own personal account.
