Wasteland 2 turn-based combat screenshot

In an announcement that comes as quite a pleasant surprise, Wasteland 2 has now introduced "Play Anywhere" functionality between the Xbox One and Microsoft Store versions. Because of this, owning a copy on either platform will now grant you ownership on both, in addition to sharing save files and achievements between the two versions.

There is a little bit of a catch, however. If you're on PC and you installed Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut before May 20, 2020, you'll need to go and separately install the Play Anywhere version. As soon as you launch the Play Anywhere version your save files and achievements will be uploaded to the cloud, after which you'll have full access to the above-mentioned features.

Furthermore, once you've launched the Play Anywhere version and uploaded your save files, you will also be able to safely uninstall the original Wasteland 2 and save a bit of disk space. On the other hand, if you own an Xbox One copy, you'll be glad to hear that no extra steps are necessary.

Have fun with Wasteland 2, and if you need a little bit more information about this update, you should head on over to the official website.
