  • Can Windows 10 PC players play online with XBox One players?   If so, if I buy FH3 with my account and install on both PC and XBox One, can I play head to head on both devices at the same time?
  • I'd like to know for sure. I want to buy it on PC and load it onto my sons XB1. I assume that using family sharing we'd be able to play together, but I'm not sure. Any provide a 100% for sure answer?
  • You can't play it at the same time if you are on the same accounts. However if it is set to your home Xbox someone else should be able to log in to their gamer tag and play it. Also if you are digitally sharing your library it will work. You can play it on Xbox while he's on his Xbox or play it on your PC while he's on his Xbox Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Are you 100% sure? I know you definitely can't play it signed into two places at once and I didn't think the family sharing feature on the home xbox affected this. I can test it using ReCore by signing in as my wife on the Xbox and trying to play it on PC at the same time under my own ID. I know I can't sign in on my ID to both PC and Xbox and run both at once
  • 100% sure. People game share everywhere. It will 100% work. And even DLC works to.
  • Interesting, so there is a loophole around the not being able to play the same game in two places rule. Well not so much a loophole, but you know what I mean
  • Everything to know it's in a one good bottle of whisky. Goodnight
  • Can't wait to get my Xbox One copy later today. It looks great and is getting rave reviews.
  • Saw the commercial for this on TV last night. The Lamborghini racing on the sandy beach and into the surf is so realistic I'm picking up the game today!
