Fallout Shelter, Bethesda Softworks’ mobile management sim, will come to Windows 10 and Xbox One on Feb. 7. Microsoft also announced today that the free game is the newest arrival in the Xbox Play Anywhere program, which allows for cross-play and cross-buy.

Downloading Fallout Shelter on either Xbox One or Windows 10 will allow players to carry over their saves from one platform to the other. That’s unique to this version of the game, which also marks the first time it’s playable on console.

This may be Fallout Shelter’s Windows 10 debut, but the game’s been available on Windows PC since last July. That version of the game is available exclusively through the Bethesda.net launcher. Players also can transfer over their saves to the PC version from the Android version of the game, although that’s not natively supported through Fallout Shelter on PC itself.

Bethesda continues to support Fallout Shelter, a game it released during E3 2015. The iOS and Android versions were hugely popular upon release, with players spending more than 29 million hours collectively within its first month on the market.
