Bonds of the Skies and Old Man's Journey join Xbox Play Anywhere

A few years ago, Microsoft announced an initiative called Xbox Play Anywhere. Xbox Play Anywhere allows you to purchase a game once on Xbox One or Windows 10, and play it on both devices without having to buy each version separately. Furthermore, all of your Xbox Achievements and progress carry over. It's as easy as launching the game and you're all set!

Over the past few years, a lot of high-profile experiences like Middle-earth: Shadow of War have joined the program. However, Xbox Play Anywhere keeps on getting a steady stream of smaller games. Bonds of the Skies is already available, while Old Man's Journey is making its debut next week. You can read about both games below.

Bonds of the Skies

Young Eil is in the middle of his coming-of-age ceremony when suddenly his town is attacked by a demon and engulfed in flames. In the midst of the chaos, Eil enters into a pact with the Air Grimoa, Nogard, in order to save everyone. Eil and Nogard set off to look for the demon who cast the town into a sea of flames, and to find other Grimoas in order to put a stop to its violence.
