1) On PC press the Windows key and type in 'Microsoft Store' and press 'ENTER'

2) If you haven't purchased the game, now is the time to do so. You can buy it right from the Microsoft Store. Have a code instead? Open the menu in the upper right (see image below) and click redeem code.

  • $60 is a lot. I would do it if it were on Steam (and thus refundable if I don’t find it fun). But at that price point I will have to wait and see.

    • I’m going to assume you need a Live account to redeem codes, yes. If you play on computer, you don’t need Xbox Live “GOLD” which is the one that costs money. Having an “Xbox live” account is free.
