Project Spark, Microsoft’s own take on user generated content (think of it as a cross between LittleBigPlanet and Minecraft… which Microsoft now also owns), was announced at E3 last year, and is now finally out as a free to play download on the Xbox One Xbox Live Store, and on the Windows Marketplace on Windows 8. The game’s launch follows a six month long beta, which saw more than 1 milion Project Spark creators log 4 million hours making 70,000 game levels that fans can dive into on day one.
If you don’t want to get the game digitally, Microsoft will also sell a retail version of the game for $40, which will have over $85 worth of content. If you do get it digitally, you can unlock bonus content and enhancements either by using in game credits that Microsoft promises are easy to earn, or by spending money and bypassing the process of actually earning the credits.
Project Spark looks great and it has the potential to blow up. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more news on it.
