  1. If I own a PC game and have an XBox Subscription, can I play the same game?


    If I own a PC game and have an active XBox subscription, how can I play the same game?

    Gives me a message like can't play the game as someone already is attempting to play the game (even if there is different profile used).

    Both profiles are linked to the same account.

    Ideally would love to play the game (Age of Empires 2) with my son him on the Xbox and me on the PC

    :)

    If I buy and own Halo Mcc on Xbox. And my Microsoft and steam accounts are linked. Do I have to buy Halo Mcc Again on pc?

    Hi there! This is Ronnie, an independent advisor.

    Nice to meet you and I hope you are having a great day!

    I understand you have a question about MCC.

    Actually, this game is sold separately for PC users and it is not part of play anywhere games in which you would have to buy it on PC as well even if you owned it on Xbox.

    Only play anywhere games can be playable on both devices if you own the license on either of the devices.

    You can check more information here about play anywhere games:

    https://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/xbox-play-anyw...

    But you can play the game on PC without buying it if you have game pass subscription though.

    XBOX Gamepass for PC -- Multiple users

    I understand that. If we each have own own individual Gamepass subscriptions, can they play the games I have downloaded? I don't want to have 3 copies of the same game on my hard drive.

    Products of Microsoft

    Hi, I hope you're doing great out there. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regard to your concern.

    It would be Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. It includes Xbox Live Gold subscription, Game Pass for Console, PC Game Pass, and EA play.

    Xbox Live Gold subscription - Subscription required to play online.

    Game Pass for Console - Library of games that you can all play (hundreds of games)

    PC Game Pass - Same as Game Pass for Console but for PC.

    EA Play - Library of EA games that you can also access.

    On top of this is free games every month. Perks such as Discord nitro subscription, apple music, disney+ subscription, etc but will still depend.
