PC digital game gifting now available in the Microsoft Store

PC digital game gifting is now available in the Microsoft Store, Microsoft today confirmed.

“Today, we’re excited to announce that we have expanded digital gifting to include PC games and PC downloadable game content (e.g. map packs, skins). Further, all Xbox One games are now eligible for digital gifting,” Microsoft’s John Smith confirmed on Xbox Wire.

Like a similar initiative with Xbox One games, users will now have the option to “Buy as gift” rather than purchasing a digital license for themselves. You can see the “Buy as gift” button in the image above.

Are you planning on buying gifts for others… or hoping someone will buy you gifts instead? You can find out how the entire process works here.
