It was recently confirmed by Capcom that Resident Evil 7 is indeed going to have a cross-save capability for the Xbox and PC.
That’s right! Now, you would be able to save your game while playing on your Xbox, then move into your PC with whatever progress you currently have.
This function could be useful in certain scenarios, like when you start playing on the Xbox but couldn’t use it for a while. You would be forced to move to your PC to continue playing the game. It could also be a great way to back up and secure your save files.
As translated and posted on Gamespot, the information was first announced from Japanese website Dengeki. Capcom Japan revealed that the PC version can share game saves with the Xbox One version. However, there still wasn’t any clarification if Resident Evil 7 would be a part of the ‘Play Anywhere’ program, as neither Microsoft nor Capcom confirmed its status.
Resident Evil 7 VR Mode
Resident Evil 7 is also set to release on Sony Playstation 4. However, the ‘Play Anywhere’ feature appears to be solely available on Xbox exclusive games.
Notably, Resident Evil 7 VR mode is exclusive to the PS4, which also includes The Kitchen VR demo. PS4 VR gamers would definitely enjoy the game given its virtual reality environment.
Resident Evil 7 release date is scheduled for January 24 for all platforms worldwide, and January 26 in Japan.
The series has been mostly criticized for shifting to the action genre since Resident Evil 5, but now makes a comeback to its survival horror roots.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard would still be a part of the main canonical storyline. It takes place around 4 years after the events of Resident Evil 6.
The game is more known as Biohazard in Japan, and the title of the game is Biohazard 7: Resident Evil. Overseas it is Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, as some sort of symbolic merger for the franchise.
