While Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will not be a main stage title at this summer’s Evo 2018, the crossover title is still going strong at many other tournaments, and now has a bit more positive news heading its way — particularly to fans of Microsoft gaming platforms.

Windows Central announced today that MvC:I has now received Xbox Play Anywhere support. Established in September 2016, this service allows players to purchase a title digitally on either the Xbox One or Windows 10 PC platform only once to play it on both systems — with all game saves, Achievements, and DLC add-ons carrying over between the two. This makes MvC:I Capcom’s second title to achieve this status, alongside Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. The title has also seen a price drop on the digital storefront, with the base game now going for a mere $39.99, as opposed to the previous price of $59.99.

This is certainly positive news for the franchise, and reaffirms that Capcom remains committed to the game’s success in the long-term, with hopefully more players picking up the game as a result of this initiative.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam/Windows 10.
