Microsoft today announced that Project Spark on Xbox One and Windows 8 will be officially releasing on October 7 in the US (October 9th and October 10th in certain other regions). This also means that they will be removing the “Beta” tag once and for all. If you remember exactly, Project Spark is in development for four long years.
What does this mean for you?
- Your Project Spark beta account will automatically carry over to a Project Spark live account. (It is…magic!)
- Everything you have created, everything you have earned, everything you have unlocked and purchased, will all be there. (We are all winners!)
- The Project Spark Starter Pack for Xbox One and Windows 8 will be hitting store shelves (in both the physical and virtual worlds) on October 7 in the US, October 9th and October 10th in other regions.
- Project Spark remains, and will continue to remain, a free digital download. (Ha! And they say nothing was free…)
What is Project Spark Starter Pack?
The Project Spark Starter Pack you an amazing bundle of additional cool Project Spark stuff to jump-start your fun. You can pick up the Project Spark Starter Pack at your favorite retailer or inside Project Spark itself, starting October 7 in the US and Canada (October 9 in Europe and October 10 in Asia). Better yet, why not pre-order it today from one of your favorite retailers? (A little squirrel tells us that some retailers even have special pre-order deals!)
And while there is no way we could adequately thank all of our beta testers for the pivotal role they played in helping our small team make it to the finish/starting line, we’re giving all beta testers a small token of our gratitude. We are not thanking you for helping us make our game; we are thanking you for allowing us to help you create yours.
Be sure to log in to the game on October 7 and see the reward show up in your account. We will also be sending a final beta email on October 6 to remind you of the same. We will be giving the Beta rewards package to everyone who installed and played the Project Spark Beta on Xbox One or Windows 8.1 prior to 11:59pm PDT on October 5th 2014. So, there’s still a few days if you or your friends have been procrastinating!
