Project Spark Beta Coming to Xbox One Next Month

Xbox One players will soon get their chance to get in on the Project Spark beta... project.

A beta testing Microsoft's game-maker Project Spark on Xbox One will begin in February, developer Team Dakota announced yesterday on Facebook. The beta comes slightly behind the anticipated "January 2014" window the studio announced back at Gamescom.

A beta for the Window 8 version of Project Spark has been open since last month. Players already putting the game through its paces on PC will automatically have receive access on Xbox One, plus a second code to send to a friend when the Xbox One beta begins. Players will be able to access projects created with the Windows 8 version on Xbox One.

There's still no word on whether there will be a beta for the Xbox 360 version of Project Spark. The game is expected to launch on all platforms in 2014. For now, Windows 8 and Xbox One players can sign up for the beta on the Project Spark website.

So far what I have played of the Beta has been alot of fun. I especially like the crossroads mode where you basically just pick your own adventure, like those old books.

Are they making it a point to say that it's coming to Windows 8 specifically because you won't be able to run it on other versions of windows?

Oh this is on Windows 8? I might sign up for it when I can. Project Spark was the Xbox exclusive I was most excited for when I saw the E3 video.

This is the most interesting game coming out in the near future I think. Hopefully I can get a beta key.

That's correct.

Had a go with it on my brothers PC, wasn't all that impressed to be honest. Will reserve actual judgement for full game, he's liking the beta so I assume he will get the game.

Wow, that's just... well then. Thanks for clarifying that.
