Dumb cross play question - gears 5

I think I know the answer to this, but I haven’t found any solid information.

I have an xbox and a pc in the same room. Instead of using split screen and squinting like an idiot I’d like to play on my PC and my friend play on the xbox.

My guess is that I’ll need two different copies of the game to play at the same time. It would be cool to play in the same game of horde or versus on two different screens. Is that the case?

Make your Xbox your home Xbox. He can play the game on that and you on PC.


I do this for my wifes Xbox.


Same although for us we used the year of gold -to year of UGP for a dollar trick. Only 61$ for her, 181$ for me, but no problem with Gears!
