A month ago at E3 2016, Microsoft revealed the Play Anywhere program. With the program, purchasing a title for Xbox One or Windows PC would automatically get you a copy for both platforms, and you’d be able to switch back and forth between playing on the PC and the console, hence the “play anywhere” moniker.

Now, just a month after the announcement, Microsoft has revealed the debut date: September 13. That’s when the program will go live, and among the first supported titles will be ReCore, Gears of War 4, and Forza Horizon 3. To use the feature, gamers will need the Windows 10 Anniversary update (coming August 2nd) and the summer update for Xbox One. Surprisingly, the feature doesn’t require Xbox Live Gold.

One of the most exciting features of Play Anywhere is cross-platform play, but Microsoft was quick to clarify that it wouldn’t work for all games. 343 Industries had to nix cross-platform play on Halo Wars 2, for example. Expect Microsoft to make it very clear which games are supported and which ones aren’t.
