Some games support cross play between players on an Xbox console and players on a Windows device for multiplayer mode.
You can use a mouse and keyboard, or an Xbox controller. If you use a controller, you’ll need either a USB cable to connect it to your device, or an Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows.
You can also connect an Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One X, or Xbox One S controller to your device using Bluetooth. Other USB game controllers supported by Windows may also work.
Yes, for multiplayer or other online games. If you already play games on your Xbox console, you can use the same account. If you don’t have an Xbox account, you can use the same Microsoft account you used to purchase the game.
If you’re planning to be in an area with no online coverage, you can prepare your Windows device to allow you to play most games offline.
If you play offline, some features, such as leaderboards, and using the benefits of the Xbox network won’t be available. If you earn any achievements while playing offline, they’ll sync to your account the next time you sign in to the Xbox network on your device. Your game save progress will also sync when you sign in to the Xbox network.
On Xbox, you can install your game and then play offline on your home console, as well as install and play on your friends' consoles if you sign in to the Xbox network before playing.
On Windows, you can install your game and then play offline on your main device (usually the first device you install the game on) and install on multiple devices if you sign in to the Xbox network before playing. Games that support Xbox Play Anywhere can only be signed in at one place at a time while playing.
Most games in the Microsoft Store are playable on Xbox Series X|S. Titles designated Optimized for Xbox Series X|S are built from the ground up (or rebuilt) to use the power of the Xbox Series X|S console.
Most Xbox One games are playable on Xbox Series X|S. Additionally, games can look and perform better, and select titles offer faster frame rates, auto HDR, and improved screen resolution.
Things to keep in mind: A small number of titles playable on Xbox One aren’t compatible with Xbox Series X|S. Xbox Series X|S game compatibility with the Xbox One console is provided on a per-title basis by the game’s developer. If you’re not sure which console your game will play on, check on the box or on the game’s details page at GameStop. Because Xbox Series S is an all-digital console, disc-based games aren’t compatible with it.
Xbox 360 and Original Xbox games that are compatible with Xbox One are also playable on Xbox Series X|S.
If you have an Xbox One already, you can set up a Network Transfer to send all your games from your old console to your new Xbox Series X|S, rather than re-downloading them all onto the new system. To do this, you’ll need to ensure both consoles are connected to your home network.
