    Xbox users already pay for Xbox Live, you can’t play anything multiplayer without it. It’s standard operating procedure.

    It seems a bit harsh, having to pay twice?

    Xbox Live users get a free "silver" account when they sign up for a gamer tag and account.
    But if you want to access friends, and multiplayer, you have to sign up for a subscription "Gold" account which is what im guessing will be required on xbox in order to access Co-op for SoD2.

    It's the new shindig. Sony does it too. Pay to play online. Gold has perks of offering free games monthly. But that's it. If online is all you want, you must decide if it's worth it.

    I don't have a Xbox and from I have heard about MS Store, don't think I am going to waste my money there, so that I can use my PC.

    Xbox Live gold is only 5 bucks a month, and if you spend time watching you can find it for 3 sometimes. Of course you’re trading attention for money, but sometimes social media will just slap you in the face with a deal. Keep in mind that it was created when there was less network speed and publishers weren’t as good at managing multiplayer servers. The idea is you’d pay xbox and they would have good servers for any of your multiplayer games. It’s not as necessary today, but doesn’t feel odious to me, maybe because of ingrained habit.

    Xbox players do pay for a gold subscription which Has its perks. It’s $69.99 per year which is over $5 a month. For that price multiplayer access, I get 4 free games a month, which is 48 free games per year, and I get access to weekly deals/discounts only available to gold subscribers. The free games more then cover the cost of the subscription in my opinion. Before anyone throws the “PC is better” views at me, know I also play on PC too lol. More info on Xbox’s gold subscription in the link below.

    I will have to wait to see any reports from PC Users - That's if I can find the right place for genuine feedback.

    As a Windows 10 PC gamer you won’t pay for Online multiplayer access. Multiplayer is free for you as a PC player. You can play with Xbox players and PC players free of charge. It’s Only Xbox players who will be paying to play online, but that subscription come with its perks as I’ve stated above. Not to mention it looks like I’ll be playing SoD2 free now that it’s in the Xbox Game Pass, which I’m subscribed to as well. Both PC and Xbox players have their pros and cons, but in the end, Since SoD2 is a play anywhere title, it doesn’t matter which version you purchase (Xbox or PC), you will automatically get instant and free access to both versions via the Play Anywhere Program.

    Oh okay well I still need to see how MS Store will support PC Users, as they don't have a very good reputation to date:(

    Here's one example -Link-.
    Although I don't like the store be aware that the article is from 2016 so it may not be accurate today, patches etc.

    I’m from Canada, so there is a price difference.

    That's crazy. I would think MS wants to get as many people to pay for XBL as possible.

    They are competing with Steam and Origin, so MS needs to provide equal or better offers. Charging for online multiplayer on PC would be a bad move.

    I agree but there have been many bad moves that have become common. Always online, DRMS, auction houses, loot boxes, releasing sequels without swimming pools, etc etc.
