Barely a month away form its global release, Capcom's "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is gearing up to be not only the scariest gaming iteration the industry is about to experience. It is also being heralded now to be one of those few practical video games that can literally let gamers expand their experience across two of the most popular platforms, PC and Xbox One, all at the same time.

Capcom has confirmed to IGN that "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is set to feature a cross-save functionality for Xbox One and PC platforms. The said feature will allow players to save the game on Xbox One while continuing on playing on PC. On top of this, the entry will also be supporting the much-prized feature nowadays, the 4K resolution.

"Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is not the only offering that now supports the "cross-saving" feature. In fact, the functionality has already been present, in a more pronounced way, with Microsoft's "Play Anywhere" scheme. In it, gamers are allowed to have a free copy on Xbox whenever they choose to purchase a game on PC or vice-versa. It currently features thirteen games with three of which are now readily available. Notably, "Gears of War 4" and Capcom's very own "Street Fighter V" arealready under the same scheme.

Released initially on stage at PlayStation's E3 conference, "Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is set to feature timed virtual reality (VR) exclusivitywith PlayStation VR. On the other hand, the video game will also come with its GameStop-exclusive "Collector's Edition," which will be including an eight-inch model of the Baker mansion. The mansion is also disguised to be a music box in disguise which naturally espouses a creepy vibe of music. Further, it will come with a mannequin-sized finger-shaped 4GB USB, a SteelBook case containing the game, a lithograph of the Baker family and the traditional ghoulish note.

"Resident Evil 7: Biohazard" is set to hit the shelves on Jan. 24, 2017. It will be out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
