Following its success on the Xbox One, Microsoft has announced at Gamescom that its early access-like Xbox Game Preview program would be coming to Windows 10 as well. Everspace will be the first game available in this capacity with many more to be added in the coming days.

ID@Xbox director Chris Charla stated that, “I’m super happy that we’re enabling PC gamers to preview and purchase work-in-progress digital titles, participate in the development process and help developers make Windows 10 games the best they can be. We’ll have lots more games to talk about in Game Preview for Windows 10 soon.”

Charla also noted that there are “way more than 1,000” ID@Xbox titles in development for both Xbox One and Windows 10. He also pointed to some of the multi-million sellers like ARK: Survival Evolved which managed to sell 1.5 million units through the Game Preview.

“I know I speak for the entire ID@Xbox team when I say getting to work with the independent developers in our program is a huge privilege. Being in contact with so many great creators on a daily basis is both energizing and hugely inspirational. We always know we have more to do, but we are super motivated to keep helping developers deliver great games!”

Competition for Steam Early Access should be interesting but will it spur interest in Windows 10 gaming? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    lol everspace on xbox game preview… launching on steam early access 14th september. unlucky.

    Whose going to buy this on win10 store when you can buy it on steam or completely DRM free on GOG. MS cant compete with that

    I backed it on kickstarter so i got the game for like £15-18 and i can wait till it releases properly

      “Whose going to buy this on win10 store”, you ask. The answer may lie in the Xbox and Windows 10 cross-buy feature. If you can buy it once and play it everywhere (i.e. console and PC), who’s going to buy this on Steam? I don’t know about this game, tho.

      thats only if its a cross buy feature which is entirely down to the developer. It would be useful if you own an xbox but if you dont like most PC gamers why bother.

      The game does look really good its like you progress through zones till you get to the end, upgrading your ship so you can kill harder and harder enemies as you go. might turn out to be rubbish though but from what ive seen its right up my alley
