Project Spark Open Beta Begins

March 19, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


Two weeks ago, we told you about the upcoming beta for Project Spark on the Xbox One. Well, the open beta has started today, and you don’t need a key to enter it. All you need to do is download it.

Best of all, you no longer need to use “Spark Time” to access any content. Everything is free. (If you already bought Spark Time, however, you’ll be repaid. Community manager Mike Lescault said, “Anyone who acquired 30 days of Spark Power within the last 30 days, will continue to get the 200% bonus for XP and credit, but we will be granting them 24,000 credits.”)

Project Spark is definitely one of the more intriguing concepts we’ve heard about, and something that should promote a lot of creativity amongst fans. Give it a try and share your thoughts in the comments below!

Join the Project Spark Beta on Xbox One

March 4, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


One of the most exciting things Microsoft announced at 2013’s E3 was Project Spark, a creativity-based sandbox game in which players essentially create their own games for other users to play. It includes Kinect functionality so that players can give characters spoken dialogue and animations. It has the potential to be really expansive and impressive, and if you have an Xbox One, you can try it out right now through its global beta.

If you were a part of the Windows 8.1 beta for Project Spark, you’ll automatically have access to Xbox One beta as well. Other players just have to sign up for their invitation. If you’re interested, head on over to the sign-up page now.

Spark Tokens have also appeared on the Xbox One store page, which suggests players will be able to buy them for the beta. 500 Spark Tokens cost $4.99.

This beta should be a good way both for players to see what Project Spark is capable of and for Microsoft to see what players want from Project Spark. Check out the official FAQ for more information and let us know your thoughts.
